PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD! As a prep cook in a local diner with a punk rock vibe that serves breakfast all day and classic dishes like meatloaf, catfish ettouffe, and vegan chili for dinner, it's been a great time learning what's important in cooking and where you can take shortcuts. You only have to follow the recipe the first time.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast foods and traditional holiday dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom makes a tin of my favorite cookies for Christmas each year. I hope the tradition will be continued through my generation and beyond.
My cooking triumphs
The Cherpumple Cake, of course!
My cooking tragedies
They've been few and far between enough to have faded from my memory.
