An adventurer who likes to explore new cultures, try new things and spice things up (not just HOT but interesting)
My favorite things to cook
I like trying new recipes. Some of my creations came from an idea from another recipe, but after many substitutions and adding some home-grown spices or other experimental ingredients, became something new. I only post the very best, the discoveries I need to share.
My favorite family cooking traditions
French, Middle Eastern, Indian, Mediterranean, Mom's special sauces and ways of "doctoring" things, including whole meats.
My cooking triumphs
When I subscribed to Cuisine at Home, I mastered several of their amazing recipes, including the Bouillabaisse. Formidable!
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes when I make things up, I blow it...inedible results. There are a number of memorable such bombs. One gaffe (following a recipe) was gingerbread cookies. The dough just got tougher and tougher and was like a rock, impossible to salvage.
