The Poblano Casserole: We had several poblano peppers that had ripened in the garden. I found Martha Stewart's recipe for Stuffed Poblano Peppers Casserole, with cheese, an onion filled cornmeal stuffing. What's not to love? The first step is blending garlic, tomatoes, onions, garlic and a… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a vegetarian with vegan tendencies. I eat eggs and butter, but I buy my eggs from happy chickens free to roam and buy butter from a local dairy with grass-fed, hormone-free cows. I'm trying to restrict carbohydrates and fats, for health reasons, but if I woke up thin and gorgeous tomorrow, I would eat buttered biscuits for breakfast, pasta for lunch with pizza and ice cream all day. But since that's not happening, I'll have a salad, please.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but when I bake, I eat the cakes and cookies. That's not the best idea for me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A Sunday brunch frittata is quick and delicious. The side dishes vary from berries to home-fried potatoes. Since we're Southern, it's important we eat a bowl of grits with butter once in a while.
My cooking triumphs
I can make a three-layer red velvet cake that's not overly dense or dry, with the traditional cream cheese frosting. I learned to make it for my mother, who loves the color red. My favorite cake is my mother-in-law's yellow cake with fudge icing. It's good enough to be illegal.
My cooking tragedies
I've had too many to remember, but the half-raw fried chicken when I was a bride, and the lentils marsala that tasted like watery tumeric are two main courses my husband won't forget.

Cinnamon Mocha Sheet Cake
The cake was delicious, even though I made a substitution: I used 8 oz. of strong coffee to substitute for the cup of water and espresso powder. I used the icing from Texas Sheet Cake V recipe, which is like fudge.

Asian Coleslaw
Delicious. We made this as a light, family main course. We used olive oil and regular peanut butter. Hint: If you want to use two cabbages instead of three, the Napa cabbage and bag of cole slaw works well, and isn't too "cabbage-y" but perfect. The red peppers and carrots take care of the colorful appeal. The cilantro and ginger make this dish smell heavenly.

Party Italian Wedding Soup
When I prepare this again, I will pre-cook the meatballs in the oven or in a skillet before adding them to the soup. I did not like the flavor of boiled ground beef, which retains a flavor too raw for my taste.
