Dissatisfied with the baba ghanoush recipes she was finding, Karen Waldman decided to create her own. By combining mayonnaise and tahini, she tinkered, found her perfect combination, and even incorporated it into a Greek-themed Thanksgiving meal. The unique dinner was an instant hit with her family. She plans to explore another cuisine by making this year's holiday menu an Indian feast. "I find this part of cooking, the creativity, very rewarding, especially when it turns out tasty," she says.
