About this Cook
I'm a born-again foodie with a particular interest in nutritious, organic foods. I have lots of weird food allergies and sensitivities, so I'm very careful about what I eat now, and try to keep eating out and processed foods to a minimum, so I always know exactly what I'm putting in my mouth.
My favorite things to cook
Organic, grass-fed, fresh ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom bakes award-winning challah bread.
My cooking triumphs
Created a low carb, hi-protein bluberry muffin using quinoa flakes, quinoa flour, and why protein that was AWESOME! I love proteins that masquerade as yummy carbs.
My cooking tragedies
Canned salmon soup. Horrifying. Went straight into the disposal.

Beef Au Jus
I hate gravy. As a result, I have never made it. Not once. Not ever. This year, I made it. Using this recipe. It was amazing, and it couldn't have been easier. I used GF flour instead of regular all-purpose flour, and it still came out great.

Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib
IT WAS PERFECT!!!! The 8.32 prime rib I got for Thanksgiving this year was crazy expensive, so I HAD to get it right. Chef John's equation worked perfectly. Thanks for making me love math, Chef John! We ate that thing for four days. Four heavenly days. Oh, I only had fresh thyme, not the fancy French herbs. Made a compound butter with it and it worked like a charm. A yummy, yummy, charm.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
I skipped the bouillon, cream cheese, and sour cream and stuck with butter and milk. Basically, anything you can throw in a slow cooker on Thanksgiving and not worry about is a life saver.
