About this Cook
I'm a nutritional professional with a passion for food. Many of my recipes are for dietary modifications, however I love classic recipes with a modern twist.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies, and breads. Also I like to try ethnic dishes and am willing to try almost anything once. I feel every recipe can be personalized.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma always made the best chicken and dumplings, I don't have her recipe so I'm experimenting to find the best fit. My Mom is the McGyver of cooking and that's what creates a good chef working with mother Hubbards cupboards and then buying gourmet ingredients when your ready.
My cooking triumphs
My grooms Cakes it was a tall Mickey head. Before we knew each other I may have let him think I was a better cook than I actually was. Every time he appreciates me for my cooking I feel loved. Food is such a personal thing.
My cooking tragedies
eggs you know you can do allot of baking but an actual egg dish needs salt. Also I once tried to mix a meringue by hand...stand mixers are worth the price.

Balsamic Beurre Noir
Simple and really tasty! However I have to ask why no salted butter? I get it for this recipe, but it can be pretty darn tasty on toast or a Ritz cracker... Just defending my love for the seasoning of life salt.

Beef Tamales
great authentic meal, I had to get creative with the pot. This is not an easy recipe, however it's a great meal to freeze.

My Own Famous Stuffed Grape Leaves
tasty but allot of effort. The grape leaves are no easy to find at the store, and the folding seems like it would take more practice.
