This past weekend created some of the strangest weather I have ever been involved in.  Throughout my life I have seen news reports and photos of people involved in terrible flooding and disasters but like so many I didn’t think it would ever happen to me or my friends but this weekend… MORE

About this Cook
I am a runner/triathlete so I enjoy eating delicious, healthy food. I buy most of my food at the local farmer's market and enjoy trying new things with the local ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
I am a sucker for seafood. I love just about anything that comes from the water.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making my grandmother's meatloaf. It reminds me of being a child.
My cooking triumphs
Creating a delicious (if not entirely authentic) Chinese New Year dinner for about 20 people.
My cooking tragedies
Pancakes. There is something with me and pancakes. I just can't seem to make them right. They are always too soggy or burnt or there is just something wrong with them.

Rosemary Roasted Butternut Squash
This is so simple and was incredibly delicious. The butternut squash actually tasted rather sweet and my husband thought that it was sweet potatoes. The fresh rosemary really gives this dish an extra kick.

Jerk Chicken Wings
Wow! These are absolutely amazing! I made them exactly as written with the exception of using jalapenos instead of habaneros. I also used 4 instead of 3 since I was using peppers with less heat. I do not have a huge tolerance for spicy food and these turned out great for me. The balance of flavor and spice was perfect. They also made the house smell fantastic while cooking. My husband couldn't quite raving about them (although he did say they could have a little more heat). Definitely give these a try.

Chef John's Salt Roasted Chicken
So simple and delicious. There is a ton of salt to this recipe and I did not get enough out of the pan before making the lemon sauce. I added just a touch of sugar and that evened out the saltiness nicely. The chicken itself was incredibly moist and delicious. This will definitely be made many, many times
