"I see you're making Biscotti, that's hard!" said my sister on the phone, "Actually, it's not!" I exclaimed, "I thought it was hard too, but it turns out this is easy. I am in Biscotti mode right now" I continued, "I am experimenting with it, making all kinds of renditions."    My favorite… MORE

.  On October 19, Friday evening driving home from work, I was in Huntington just 10 minutes from my home, headed north on Round Swamp Rd, a rainy evening, when around the corner I see a car coming at me out of control. I could do nothing, absolutely, nothing, the car hit me head on at a high… 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!
