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.

Classic Meatloaf
Quite delicious. For whatever reason this took a lot longer to cook than the directions indicated...I think because I used a deep casserole dish rather than a slightly deep metal pan. Amazing how much of a difference a pan can make. It was delish when we finally ate it though!

Jalapeno Cucumber Lemonade
Made this for a Christmas party in Hawaii, everyone loved it. Next time I'd have added a little more jalapeño.

Halibut with Creamy Garlic and Herb Sauce
"One of the best dinners you've ever made" -- the g.f. Made this with halibut from Pike Place Market, so the fishmonger gets an assist, but this sauce was absolutely fantastic. Definitely prep all the ingredients ahead of time and put them in little bowls. I'd say all told you'll spend about an hour of solid work to make this, but it's worth it. Served with whole-grain rice and baked romanesco.
