About this Cook
I was an elementary and high school principal as well as an assistant superintendent for the California Public School system. As an educator it was upsetting to me when California eliminated the mandate for Home Economic classes which taught cooking classes that provided valuable skills for students in math, reading, writing and trade skills. As a principal I protected those classes by keeping them funded in my budget and emphasizing to the State how the skills developed in Home Economics supported every other academic classes being taught in public education. I love to cook and enjoy developing my repertoire of cooking creative recipes while reading others who share their secrets and insights for wonderful meals.
My favorite things to cook
I've been a vegan for the last twenty-five years and find that italian, Indian and oriental, and many American foods provide the most alternatives to meat and dairy products.

However, there have been times that I can't resist a slice of rare and delightful cheese paired with a wonderful glass of wine...how delightful. Knowing the most recent revelation regarding certain types of fish, and the longevity of cultures that include wine a fish, I have added some fish to my diet...
