About this Cook
Born and raised in Seattle, college and post-college in New York City, now back to Seattle because it smells nicer.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly things that take a long time, like soups and chili and stew. Grilling in the summer, obviously, as dictated by my Y chromosome.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't have any. We always have lefse at Christmas (it's Norwegian sugary potato bread) but I think my Aunt buys it. My mom's mac and cheese is pretty good, but is it tradition if you started having it in the 1990s?
My cooking triumphs
That very mac and cheese has been the cause for much celebration.
My cooking tragedies
When I was just learning to cook, I was living on the Lower East Side in this apartment with no living room, just hallways, two TINY bedrooms, and an even tinier kitchen. Somehow I got the idea that, on a 90-degree August day, I should make a spicy pasta sauce that needs to slow-simmer for two hours. I think I lost as much weight from sweating while eating the hot pasta and spicy sauce I got from the food itself.

Tofu Vindaloo
The gf says: "Wow, this is really good. Such good flavors! *pats me on knee* I love you!" I found that following the recipe left the veggies a little bit crunchy (though definitely not raw), which adds body to the stew. We ate it over brown rice...the next day the gf served it the same way as leftovers, but with an overeasy egg on top...which was fantastic.

Vietnamese Lemon Grass Chicken Curry
Saw lemongrass in the store, wanted to make something with it, found this recipe on the AR app and made it that night. Soooo good. Loved the sauce.

Horseradish and Honey-Glazed Ham
Loved the tangy horseradish in this. I used a kurabota ham from Snake River Farms...so tender and delicious!
