About this Cook
Married, in school, working, and living on a budget (aren't we all?). Cooking lets me be creative, spend way less money than going out, and gets me out of clean up duty. :)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts. They are the most fun to give and to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Shabbat. My family "invented" the everything Challah, and I eat so much of it with chopped liver and white fish salad that I almost never get to the main course.
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm, well, I brought to concept of sweet potato pie to my pueblo in Peru. My host family was very impressed.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first learning to cook I made a beef stew that was so spicy that all of the boys refused to eat it. My mom choked it down for me through a running nose and tearing eyes. Thanks mom!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
Wonderful cake. I made it in 9X13 pan and it took about 50 minutes to cook. For those of you worried about what type of cocoa powder to use - I used Hersheys and it turned out fine. In my mind that *is* a quality ingredient! Like others I used coffee instead of water - couldn't taste the coffee but the cake was amazing.

Creamed Spinach
I made this for my brothers birthday dinner. He requested cooked spinach as his vegetable. He LOVED this. Really easy to make, and a big crowd pleaser.

Old Fashioned Rhubarb Bread Pudding
Excellent recipe. I didn't use the additional sugar, it was plenty sweet enough with the sweetened condensed milk. I also only used 4 eggs (what I had).
