Here I go! Today it's snowing like crazy and I'm home, so I'm baking and making lots of fun treats!       So much fun to stay home and have the day to just cook!       Lately I've been into making Chia Seed Puddings.... Just published one on this site… MORE

Heart Healthy Chocolate Vegan Cake - in my recipe box.  I have made this cake repeatedly with much success.     This recipe is too good not to share. Enjoy! :-) MORE

Well, I'm back teaching. I have a kindergarten class in Bushwick, Brooklyn.  Before the accident I commuted in a car daily, however, I only drive around here, in Cold Spring Harbor and Huntington.  This past week I took the LIRR and subway to work.  Guess what? I'm finding that I'm less… MORE

Well, Marie was kind enough to ask how I'm doing and I thought, "Goodness, I ought to let the nice people here know how I'm doing." Perhaps you remember, on Oct. 19, 2012, I was in a very serious car accident. ( A head-on collision) My neck was broken at C2 and C1 had slipped out of place. I… MORE

Lately I'm enjoying the challenge of veganizing (that is: making vegan) and nutritionizing (that is: making nutritious) otherwise decadent recipes. The Allrecipes team just posted my Vegan Gluten Free Brownie recipe which I enjoyed creating and now I'm going to create a vegan flourless… MORE

I have been making lots of yummy new healthy recipes. "Tempeh Delight" is a creation I made from my Uncle's Chicken Wing recipe. My Uncle Henry was an excellent cook, as was my father, when I was a kid we went over  to Uncle Henry's house and had these amazing chicken wings, when I asked… MORE

I'm just wondering if any one else wonders why Allrecipes doesn't email you to follow a blog thread. Is that something you've wondered about as well? Is there a switch somewhere that I don't know about that does that? MORE

Making Ghee looked so simple to me. Unsalted butter, over a low flame, presto, it's done... OK, well I've made a few mistakes. First of all, I seemed to have a reading disability with the butter, I kept buying the salted.... Mental block or something, I don't know. It was organic butter so I… MORE

Oh drat, I tried to get creative on my first shot with pasta and it was a throw-out failure. Silly me, I have the Imperia Pasta machine and it looks fairly simple, but you need the proper ingredients I guess. If any of you great cooks have any tips let me know. I want to use Organic Pastry… MORE

I need HELP, I have a roast in the freezer and am seriously afraid of cooking it. I don't remember how to cook roasts.  Honestly I would love my sister to come over and help me with it.  I've been cooking meatless for so long I've simply forgotten how to do it. AND I have a fancy oven which… MORE

About Me
Lately I'm I am enjoying the challenge of "Veganizing" and "Nutritionizing" otherwise decadent and fat laden recipes. See my Vegan Gluten Free Brownies for example. It's quite fun to match the taste and add nutritional value to our favorite recipes. Stay tuned as I'm always working on some kind of matching creation.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking everything, rather than a favorite thing to cook, I would like to share my favorite kitchen equipment, which is, my Blendtec Blender. It is AMAZING. Almost every recipe I create reaps the benefits of this expert kitchen tool. Next to that, I'd say I love my cast iron skillet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom and Dad used to make the most amazing food. My Uncle Henry used to make these chicken wings that I loved. I remembered the recipe and make a tofu version!
My cooking triumphs
I like raw chocolate and spent about two years creating my own raw chocolate creation, which I call, Pure Delights. It was a fun occupation and hobby. I think, though, now since I'm on all recipes, I've finally come up with an acceptable vegan brownie!
My cooking tragedies
Burning my hand in the oven! Ouch! That hurts! I am prepared now, I bought a little burn kit which has come in handy recently!
