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.

King Beef Oven Brisket
Really easy to make; end result was a tender brisket that soothed our souls after a crushing Seahawks loss. I bought a 2.5 lb brisket, so I only did 45 minutes for the first step and baked for 2 hours rather than three, which turned out perfect. I also didn't have enough beef stock to cover, so I poured in a box of chicken broth and a couple of cheap beers.

How to Make Bordelaise Sauce
Foolproof and AMAZING. I actually forgot about the sauce while the wine was reducing, it went down to nothing and I thought the sauce was ruined. Figured I'd pour the stock in anyway (I used chicken stock since I didn't have veal stock) and just see what happened...it still tasted unbelievable. Poured this sauce over a broiled Rib-eye -- one of the best meals I've had in ages, restaurants included. Also -- I only had 1 shallot but I put in the same amount of liquid and let it reduce a lot. It was still quite good.
