About this Cook
I taught art for many years and, while I'm still a painter, have been focusing and moved my creative energy from the canvas to the plate. Making memories with great meals is a huge part of family tradition.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook French and Italian foods but hope to never limit myself to one style. Recently, I've begun studying the science of food and it's renewed my enthusiasm in a big way.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm blessed with a family that has a rich tradition in good cooks. Each holiday is special, with traditional fare on Thanksgiving. On Christmas Eve we enjoy foods one would associate with summer. Without a doubt, it's my favorite meal of the year.
My cooking triumphs
Creating recipes always brings the chance of a success and something that becomes a tradition.
My cooking tragedies
Creating recipes always brings the chance of failure and something you throw away rather than eat! :)

Best Brownies
I agree with other reviewers that noted that this is a brownie that falls between cake and fudge style. It deserves the high rating. One pot to make these and they truly are done within an hour from start to finish. I added 1 cup of chopped walnuts and did not choose to make this frosting, but instead, made a creamier style chocolate frosting and topped each brownie with a walnut half. Additionally, the better the cocoa you use, the better the result. I use Callebaut cocoa (you can order it online) and it's worth EVERY cent. It's not cheap, but two pounds will last you a long time and EVERYONE will ask you how you make your chocolate desserts. It makes a tremendous difference. This recipe is delightfully easy and you'll find yourself saying, "I'll never buy a box brownie mix again."

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce
I've made this several times and always double the recipe to have extra on hand. Primarily, I use this for pulled pork. Using cheap bourbon (It will taste the same and it's a waste of good bourbon & funds to use good bourbon.) I followed the directions exactly. I have, the last couple to times added a bit of chili powder and chipotle powder to add a little bite. It is BETTER the next day and if you don't care for vinegar (I love it.) you may need to cook down the sauce more. Regardless, everyone I have cooked this for experienced love-at-first-bite & it's now my go-to recipe for great sauce.

No Bake Lime Mousse Torte
I made this for an event at a local business. I used the exact ingredients & made it as directed. I chopped the ginger snap cookies in the food processor, added a slight amount of green food color to give it a hint of color. In garnishing the torte, I piped whipped cream that I had sweetened with confectioner's sugar and beaten to stiff peaks. I used a microplane & this gave the torte fine, flavorful zest. The combination of the ginger snap, lime and chocolate strikes a delicate balance. In addition to piping whipped cream, I added lime slices bordering the circumference of the torte & microplaned white chocolate and additional zest to the top of this beautiful dessert. This received raves & numerous requests for the recipe. Super easy, super impressive, light, flavorful and stunning dessert. I'll use this one again and again. Thank you for a fabulous recipe!
