About this Cook
I've always loved food and flavors and its my favorite thing to cook for friends and family. I frequently cook at work, too! More than just spaghetti or taco salad is an important firefighter's skill.
My favorite things to cook
French and Italian soul food are my favorites and also a bit of Americana cuisine. I love to get ideas from recipes, but not necessarily follow them.
My cooking triumphs
A 5-course Italian meal for 14 people.
My cooking tragedies
Oh who that loves to cook hasn't had a disaster or two...just part of the process.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
This is a blank-slate recipe it can be adapted any way! I carmelized the onions first, changed up the cheese to a mix of blue, fontina and parmesan and because of dietary restrictions of some guests, used gluten free flour. IF you use GF flour, beware that it doesn't act like real flour, but the results are perfect. I had also multiplied this recipe to easily feed 16.
