Working full time at the hospital and caring for an organic farm in the Summer doesn't leave much room for kitchen creativity 1/2 of the year.  I love Winter for this reason.  While the produce isn't nearly as ideal as when the CSA is running full tilt, I have more time to spend… MORE

About this Cook
Long-timer in Human Resources, most recently owner of organic sweet cherry farm. Big time into living green/sustainably and supporting local farmers.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian food for my hubby - he loves anything Mexican or Italian. We also make a lot of creative salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making banket at Christmas time. Grandma's baked beans or sloppy joes.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean cheese cake. Once made dinner for 50 (hubby's boss and the whole team plus their spouses) Turned out great! Nice to have help with the dishes too. =)
My cooking tragedies
First time making mac and cheese for hubby in 1984, he will not let me forget how the cheese turned out clumpy.

Thai Steamed Mussels
Just what the Dr. ordered. Hubby has the flu and this spicy curry made him melt. As written, this is pretty mild. If you like your Thai food hot, add a sliced chili or another tablespoon of curry. I used light coconut milk, half the cilantro and half the mussels for 2. For texture I added rice noodles, shitake mushrooms and edamame. Superduper delicious. Thank you for posting this recipe!!

Monkfish Provincial
Liked it even better with capers and cous cous. Didn't really need that much butter.

Miso and Soy Chilean Sea Bass
This marinade makes a glorious reduction. Don't pour it out! The green onions are a must. Perfect ying and yang. Thank you!
