About this Cook
I hate cooking; there are a hundred and one other things I'd rather be doing then wasting my time chopping vegetables for a meal that will be gone in 5 minutes. While I am good at it, I would just rather be doing something else.
My favorite things to cook
My new favourite is Quinoa and Chickpea salad with raisins and cranberries. Groundnut Stew; one of my favourite dishes that I discovered while in Ghana.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No traditions, just love Grandma's baked goods, though they were made w/ lard and I don't have the knowledge or experience to modify them to be healthy. If I did though, would they be as good?
My cooking triumphs
Hummus! Though it doesn't involve any cooking...unless you count the roasted garlic.

Garbanzo Bean and Quinoa Salad
Love, love, love this recipe. Healthy and simple; I add chicken to mine when I want a little more protein. I especially like that it keeps for a few days and it's great for picnics!
