love to travel, garden, photograph. more often than not, those three things relate back to my love, food.
My favorite things to cook
marinara sauces, pancakes, portobello burgers, spinach-artichoke dip, and lately, gnocchi!
My favorite family cooking traditions
butter-encrusted pancakes on the electric griddle that shows its age by its avocado-colored enameling. still using approximately the same recipe, minus a bit of butter.
My cooking triumphs
my strawberry-rhubarb pie success prompted me to sign up for an account here to rave about it!
and in a few months, hopefully i will have pix of a marinara made with all homegrown tomatoes! i'm cultivating about 30 little plants in a small urban rowhome garden right now. can't wait til results are in.
My cooking tragedies
about once a year i get motivated to make a bread of some sort. always such a disappointment.
