I guess you can say that I'm kind of famous for my cooking and baking. Before every holiday or whenever someone would like to try a new dish I get calls from family and friends asking for a recipe or advice. That's because I've been cooking and baking since I was eleven years old. When DH first came over to my home for a surprise visit I happened to have been on a diet so I took some whole wheat bread, spread some mayo on it, and then put tuna straight from the can on top (to keep from going overboard with the mayo). He saw this and thought "At least I have a restaurant, I won't starve." Well, he's been spoiled good since.
Most of my recipes are my inventions or spin-offs from the original which have changed quite a bit so I feel that they are mine. I also have quite a few from my MIL as she's a wonderful cook. If I ever decide to make a cookbook I'll just change the recipes again and Zaar won't own my recipes afterall :).
Kosher fine dining is my thing and I'll try almost anything once.
Japanese, sushi, sushi, sushi, middle eastern, and sweet desserts of all kinds that don't come from a box in the supermarket.
Foods that can always be found in my house are ice cream, granola, and peanut butter (which must be eaten on a spoon straight from the jar). There is nothing that'll get me out of bed except for the knowledge that I have a real percolated coffee with sugar, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream waiting for me. That in a nutshell is what I can survive on except for the health nut in me who adores salad and fish.
I hate beets, caraway, fennel, rosemary, and anchovies (but I love Italian foods that don't have those things, ha ha).
My suggestion to improve this website is to have a black list where certain recipes or ingredients would never appear on your list.
If I could invite anyone to dinner it would be Jim Carrey who is the funniest person in the world. That would make for some evening!
I would serve my chicken soup, glazed pickled turkey, and my chocolate mousse. (I don't fool around and start experimenting when I know important company is coming to dinner).
When I rate recipes I think of the person who will try the recipe out next so although I try really hard not to hurt anyone's feeling by being overly critical of their creations, I still feel a responsibility to others as I wouldn't want to waste perfectly good ingredients on a recipe that really doesn't work and I very much appreciate honest feedback/ratings myself.
I rate recipes like this:
1 star: Awful or bland as can be; I'd never make it again (although I really wouldn't word it like that).
2 star: I'd eat it again if I was stranded on a desert island but otherwise what's the point?
3 star: This could be good if several changes are made.
4 star: This is pretty darn good but not something I'd serve in the White House.
5 star: This could never be improved as nothing is quite as wonderful as this and if you created this yourself I'm going to check out your profile and all of your recipes.
