About this Cook
My name is Jennifer and I am a social work student by day, and chef wannabe by night. I'm working on perfecting a number of dishes Gluten-free since I have celiac disease, and one day in the future, maybe open my own gluten-free restaurant.
My favorite things to cook
way too much to write here.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family is of eastern European Ashkenazic origins, so we basically made the food of that area - kasha varnishkas (if i spelled it wrong, sorry) and matzoh ball soup (the good kind from scratch). My dad also loves to make Italian dishes such as chicken or veal parmesan or spaghetti and meatballs.
My cooking triumphs
converting some of my favorite dishes to gluten-free. Also, my minestrone soup (which I had not made in a while) and several chicken dishes.
My cooking tragedies
for every success there are many failures first. for me it was my cinnamon dough ball when I was 12 which resulted in me realizing i am allergic to cinnamon. (and wheat though that was discovered later on) creamy based wheat things in the past were also major failures, now... not so much - for obvious reasons. I also could not bake traditional bread for the life of me, but somehow succeed gluten-free

Refried Beans Without the Refry
amazing! never buying store bought again. I cut the recipe to 2 cups of beans/6 cups water because my slowcooker is a tad smaller than others, and also instead of cumin i used 2/3 tsp of a home made taco seasoning that has cumin in it. also used chicken bullion instead of salt. came out FANTASTIC!!!!

Vegetarian Stuffed Poblano Peppers
fantastic recipe, i changed it up a little bit, for the filling i used 1 lb of beef (can't do veggie meat because its gluten) and 2cups rice, mixed it with some home made taco seasoning and it was out of this world!!! will definitely make again and again!
