About this Cook
I guess you could call me a foodie. I'm particularly fond of ethnic cuisine, especially Indian, Moroccan and Thai food. I could spend hours leafing through cookbooks. Food inspires me and is how I express my creativity.
My favorite things to cook
I love using my Dutch Oven for braising, baking, simple summer salads and I make an excellent roast chicken. One of my guilty pleasures is rice krispie treats! I've started playing with flavor profiles adding cardamom and toasted coconut.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up we always made cookies for holidays. Baking was something my Mom and I did together.
My cooking triumphs
I can't think of just one milestone but I can say, I'm a very good baker and this year, I've discovered how to cook minus a recipe. I'm learning the balance of salt, acid and oil.
My cooking tragedies
I burned oven mitts! Yes, in my first apartment out of college, I didn't realize the broiler was what I thought was the storage drawer. Or the time, I decided to pan sear a roast.

Slow Cooker Red Curry Beef Pot Roast
Spectacular! I had beef cheeks that were just shy of 2lbs so I used just 1cup or chicken broth & a 14oz can of tomatoes. Also, 1tbs of red curry (from the video it looks like a tbs not a tsp.) Also, I added a kafir lime leaf. Per other reviewers, I added my potatoes to the last hour of cooking time then followed the recipe directions w/bok choy & cornstarch slurry. Incredible flavor & pretty easy!

Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta
Very good & easy appetizer. Made as directed but could have used less balsamic. This would be delicious with peaches or cherries. Loved the fresh flavor.
