Certainly not like the nursery rhyme. . . but rather, we've had a green bean explosion! Every year I plant green beans, and without fail they always produce a abundant crop. This year seems to be no exception. We have other lovely veggies growing, but these other goodies seem to be growing… MORE

About this Cook
I'm an author, foodie and home-cook who suffers from food allergies. I try to create healthy, flavorful food.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything! I love a challenge.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking in a daycare and having the children actually love the food (talk about a tough crowd!). Cooking for a family of 10 in Costa Rica with limited power, in a strange kitchen (open air too), with some food ingredients that I couldn't read the label! (that resulted in a huge, fresh red snapper wrapped in a humongous banana leaf and prepared on hot open flame. One of the best fish we'd ever eaten!
My cooking tragedies
As my husband refers to that faithful meal. . . pasta carbon-ara. I burned a home-made spaghetti sauce. I was nursing my newborn daughter and forgot to stir the sauce. Ah, well.

Braised Leeks and Mustard Greens
I love leeks! And the combo with the tart mustard greens was lovely. I made a simple baked chicken and added some mushrooms and garlic. Came out great!

Eden's Nectar Bourbon Chicken
Awesome recipe for chicken! The sweet and tangy was a great taste, especially because the sugars from the sugar and whiskey carmalized. Didn't have chicken breasts, so used skinless thighs. Came out great!

Broccoli Rabe with Roasted Peppers
Great combo! Loved the tangy lemon juice and the sweet roasted red peppers - they played off each other perfectly! Maybe next time I'll add a little red pepper flake to give it just a kick.
