About this Cook
I have an allergy to dairy products, so I am always searching for recipes I can adapt or that do not use any milk products. I sometimes eat vegan dishes since I know they will be free of dairy, but in general I am a meat-lover! Also, I am very fortunate to live in a town with a great natural foods cooperative and wonderful farmer's market walking distance from my place, and an intense focus on locally grown and produced foods.
My favorite things to cook
Roasted chicken, pork or beef roasts, pancakes, waffles, lima beans, cabbage, collard greens, green beans, mexican rice, tostadas, salsa verde, guacamole, shrimp, pasta, popcorn, meatballs and dairy free cakes, cookies and brownies. Mediterranean -- anything with lots of olive oil, garlic, italian spices and red pepper flakes.
My cooking triumphs
a chocolate bundt cake..a friend called it "legendary!" My friends have always raved about my roasted chicken as well.
My cooking tragedies
trying to make a "cream cheese" frosting with a soy-based cream cheese..TRAGIC!

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp
I forgot all the seasonings -- and they were still yummy! Just used whole wheat flour, 2 eggs and panko. DELICIOUS. The coating is substantive but still light, crunchy and tender. I had a really tasty cocktail sauce so I didn't even notice that I forgot all the seasoning!!

Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
