I am whimsical and nonsensical and quite irrational. I love fine art, music, and food. I enjoy ballet, literature, and film. I am married to one of our nation's finest, a United States Marine infantryman, 3 time veteran of the current war. I am the proud mommy of a Basset Hound named Basil.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Greek dishes on holidays. Gratuitous pies. Carpet picnics.
My cooking triumphs
The perfect chocolate chip cookie, also known as Chesty's Chocolate Chip Cookies (because it's good enough for Chesty)!
My cooking tragedies
My husband hates food. If it isn't over-salted, over-processed, garbage from a pick-up window, he isn't interested. And I do NOT cook that kind of crap.
