About this Cook
I am an Interior Designer, with a husband and a cat. My husband and I love to cook and entertain together, and our cat tries to taste everything we make. I am really getting into raw and local food options, and into foods with the best nutritional value. We are frequent patrons at our local farmers market and love knowing exactly where our food came from and how it came to be.
My favorite things to cook
Anything vegetarian, seafood, mexican...I'll try anything once, really.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None. My family ate canned and boxed meals growing up. Now, I have totally moved into a more healthful, sustainable method of eating.
My cooking triumphs
I make an awesome chai tea, miso soup, white chicken chili, sushi, omelets, roast beef, and burgers.
My cooking tragedies
bread-machine bread.

Hummus III
I also had to thin mine. You could almost not drain the beans and it would be fine. I like the recipe for a good base, but added horseradish and wasabi for a spicy flair.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
Not the best crust I've had by far. Too much like a bisquick crust. It needed something, but not sure what...It was just a little too bland.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
My husband and I make these all the time. We only use whole wheat flour, so I'm sure our version isn't quite as good as this version, but it's still amazing.
