About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Baking and cooking for friends is what I enjoy most; really, really simple is what I go to if it's just me. Try to bring the best out of great ingredients instead of layering too many different elements.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Epic-level Christmas cookie baking, family homemade pizza night.
My cooking triumphs
Creme brulee, crawfish etouffee, baked beans, German pancakes, macaroni and cheese always get raves/requests. Rediscovering cheese souffle - so delicious and surprisingly easy!
My cooking tragedies
Not removing the cellophane wrapping from hot dogs at a cookout (who even thought of such a thing?!)

Pumpkin Dip
This was great tasting and light. Instead of using a teaspoon of OJ concentrate I grated a teaspoon and a half of orange peel for a really fresh flavor. Great with apples and vanilla wafers!

Southwestern Turkey Soup
Delicious with some changes - I made turkey broth from a smoked turkey carcass instead of using vegetable broth. (If you don't have a smoker, you could probably use chipotle peppers in place of the chilis.) I also used two tablespoons of fresh cilantro instead of dried. A definite repeater!
