About this Cook
I've been a touring musician for almost 30 yrs, see my website at and my blog at Worked the line at a resort as a college student. And I LOVE to cook!!!!!!!! So now that I'm semi-retired, I've gone back to culinary school!!!!
My favorite things to cook
I grill for the family in the summer months, in the kitchen in the colder months Mexican and French influences are on the stove!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up in the Adirondacks, grilled meats, stews, and fresh fish were what I grew up on! My Dad was an amazing fresh game cook, I try to incorporate some of his techniques, along with a friend who opened a French restaurant who taught me the basics.
My cooking triumphs
People seem to love the Mexican dishes I learned to cook in San Diego/El Cajon, the grill gets kudos in the summertime, and EVERYBODY loves Grandma's Adirondack Apple Pie!
My cooking tragedies
So many to choose from, so little time! ; >) I once torched a marinated lamb dish on the grill when I got a little carried away with the olive oil thing! It looked like a signal beacon for passing NASA flights!

Vegetable Masala
This was a MAJOR hit at my house! I added just a bit of cumin and my own curry blend, but that was merely an adjustment " to taste". Your flavor profile and vegetable choices were spot on, thanks for sharing!
