I'm a professional, married and a mom of two great boys. We have one crazy cat and a genius dog. Life's busy, and I'm always looking for quick, healthy meals that we'll all enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill year-round, especially beautiful fresh fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My son, William (7) loves to cook with me. He's got his own little knife and is my prep chef.
My cooking triumphs
I love cooking the Thanksgiving meal for my family and friends. Aside from always cooking a few favorites (like corn pudding!) I try new recipes every time. It's always a joy.
My cooking tragedies
I got interested in cooking when I was about 16 years old and a vegetarian. I bought a really complicated Indian recipe book. The first recipe I attempted called for fresh dill. It didn't mention that you have to take the dill 'leaves' off of the woody stems. I chop-chop-chopped up the whole shebang. It was like eating toothpick salad.
