About this Cook
I'm a psychotherapist who loves to cook. Cooking and baking provide me with an inner and outer sense of organization, clarity, and comfort, and a feeling of abundance in the many delicious ingredients, and in the potential for great meals! Once I mastered the basics of cooking, I now have a sense of delight in what I can create, and love to create new recipes...What a joy cooking is!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook and bake fresh, simple comfort foods with a Californian/Foodie edge. I rarely if ever use canned or frozen goods, and choose predominately organic ingredients from local farmers and small grocery stores whenver possible. It costs more but I believe that local farmers and small businesses deserve support in providing fresher, healthier options.

Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider
Absolutely delicious! We had dark rum on hand, and added this (after the fact) so that both adults and kids, alike, could enjoy this very Fall beverage!

Soft Christmas Cookies
These were tasty. I thought they got a little tough after a stay in the fridge and baking, and a little less buttery than I like, but they were still delicious.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
We couldn't stop eating these! We followed others' suggestions and used equal parts confectioner's sugar, white sugar, and brown sugar. After a day, these cookies were perfection: melt in your mouth peanut buttery, and decadent. We didn't use flour as we wanted them to be gluten-free. Awesome cookie!!!
