About this Cook
I love fresh food. Chopping veggies for a daily salad is a pleasure and I enjoy preparing healthy meals.
My favorite things to cook
I love quick, healthy, flavorful meal and enjoy changing with the seasons, exploring new fresh ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
European Christmas cookies, full of honey and spices.
My cooking triumphs
Converting recipes for use in the slow cooker and embracing the gas grill for year-round use.
