About this Cook
I'm a painter and a writer, one of those liberal-queer-cultural-alternative-genderbending rebels that little kids stare at.
My favorite things to cook
Thai is the most fun, so fragrant and colorful. My chicken and dumplings are an all day affair because I get that stock cooked down so chicken-y rich, the dogs cry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Down-home soul food. I recently partnered with a vegetarian and have been re-learning to cook all over again. More conscious now of the high notes and low notes.
My cooking triumphs
I had several of my recipes chosen for "The Butch Cookbook" which is available on
My cooking tragedies
Once I planned to grill shrimp for guests. I guess the shrimp had been frozen and unfrozen and re-frozen, but I was horrified to find they were a mushy mess. When I suggested we order a pizza, my guests were like "Don't be silly! It'll be fine!" Uh. If I ain't eating it, I surely ain't servin it! Gross.

Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup
Paired a nutty brown winter beer with sharp cheddar, and a squeeze of spicy brown mustard since I had no mustard powder. My family loved it. It is a little thin, but very rich, and yes, it does seem like you could more easily add the flour to sautéed veggies and only use one pot as others noted, but I appreciate someone taking the time to share a good recipe so I try to honor the original cook the first time I try a new recipe. Really easy to make, very filling. Slayed my family. My teen actually got all cozy after eating a big bowl and went horizontal right at the table, laid down across two dining chairs. My wife simply kinda went diagonal, resting on one elbow. I just drank the rest of the beer. Yum.

Carrot Rice
I added the carrots in long, thinly peeled ribbons near the end of the sauté, while the rice was all steamy. The dish would have been even better if I had cilantro on hand, but instead I added a sprinkle of frozen peas for color. This one's kinda special, ya'll. Give it a try.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi
Getting a quality visually-appealing crust was a challenge. For presentation, I wound up sprinkling toasted macadamia and coconut over the finished filets. Used the freshest fish and the freshest fruit. OMG. I cook all the time. I think this was the best thing that I ever tasted from my own kitchen. The sauce is DEEEEEVINE.
