About this Cook
I left the corporate world after many years in Human Resources. I went on to attend college for my Culinary Arts degree. In 2004, I started my own Personal Chef business and have been committed to cooking for others
My favorite things to cook
Slow from whole grain and farm fresh. Foods that are local and in season. I currently make whole wheat whole grain bread. I mill the wheat when I make the bread. It is super delicious and very nutritious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
This is something my grandmother started. Each year at Thanksgiving we always had potato rolls. When dinner moved to Mom's house, she made them. Now each of my sisters has the recipe. So when it's there turn to cook the Thanksgiving meal, we always look for the potato rolls. These are delicious!
My cooking triumphs
I prepared a wonderful sauce as an accouterment to a rack of lamb. The sauce was made spare of the moment with the jus from the meat, a little wine and pomegranate molasses. (plus a few other seasonings) It was delicious!
My cooking tragedies
Probably too many to mention. However I do remember a horribly failed souffle while customers waited that souffle didn't poof. Lesson learned... no more souffle for me. I have made it again, just not in a restaurant environment.

Watermelon Salad
Cutting the watermelon is a challenge to be sure, but the flavor of cold watermelon and the great presentation is so worth it. Add a little mint and a dash of salt give it a brighter flavor. I left out the bananas, as they tend to get a little too mushy for my taste. Great, refreshing and delicious fruit bowl. B.J.

Grilled Salmon I
WOW!!! The flavor was tremendous. This is definetly one to keep. I only made a few changes. Since I don't keep brown sugar handy, I used molasses crystals (a raw sugar. I also seared the fish in a saute pan. When the fish was cooked through, I removed the fish and reduced the sauce. The sauce is an excellent complement on the fish as well as on the oven roasted asparagus. Delicious! This one I will make again! B.J.

Bulgur Wheat with Dried Cranberries
This recipe is wonderful. I used home made chicken stock, onions, a little garlic and parsley to balance the flavors. Bulgur is a high fiber, protein grain. Use it to replace rice or potatoes. B.J. Corpening
