Mother to one, very energetic toddler who loves cherry tomatoes, blueberries, and chocolate (only in moderation though)! I love shopping and eating sustainably and locally so I've adjusted my weekly menu to include at least three vegetarian or vegan dishes. I prefer quality over quantity and REAL food!
My favorite things to cook
"Naked" foods; Traditional "peasant" meals; desserts (especially cheesecake and icecream); anything fresh and from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge holiday affairs where everyone helps. If you couldn't cook, you could at least peel potatoes!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked whole fish on a grill - I had rainbow trout from the farmers market drizzled with some olive oil, lemon juice, and stuffed with lemon slices and rosemary. grilled in basket for 12 minutes on each side - it turned out amazing!
My cooking tragedies
Everything I put in my crock pot seems to come out tasting like one ingredient - I guess I'm an unsuccessful slow cooker...
