Graphic Designer and at-home mommy to baby Jewell. I live in Seattle with my husband, who is in film school. I love rock climbing, swimming, running, yoga, cycling and dancing.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, curries, BBQ, lasagna and pasta, quick breads, muffins, puddings and custards.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother-in-laws famous "apple fritters" for breakfast and homemade individual pizzas at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone who tries my chocolate chip cookies wants the recipe and I'm very often told they are the best cookies they've ever had.
My cooking tragedies
In college I tried to fit too many beans in a crockpot. Instead of getting refried beans I ended up with half-cooked pinto beans stinking up my apartment for two days (and some unhappy roommates).
