I don't know how to classify my food interests.  I only eat poultry and fish in terms of meat.  I like healthy food but I am more concerned with food being real and not processed (some food can be "vegetarian" but still not be good for you).  By keeping this blog I hope to sort… MORE

About Me
I am an Instructional Designer by profession but have always enjoyed cooking. I have been cooking for over 30 years but I still feel like a student, learning something new all the time.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking healthy, fresh and real food. I am primarily interested in vegetarian recipes that are healthy, fresh and real, and come from sustainable, green sources, however I do eat poultry and seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's funny I don't have "traditions" as such, I always like to change things up, but I did learn to cook from my my and I am passing what I can down to my daughter.
My cooking triumphs
I do well with Mediterranean ingredients. I seem to be the most creative with these.
My cooking tragedies
After years of following different recipes I like to focus more on techniques that can be applied to a variety of ingredients. This allows me more freedom to work with ingredients available in season, rather than fixating on precise ingredients not matter how impractical they may be. I also follow my instincts and common sense more closely that the recipe. I also like to learn from the practical experience of other cooks.
