About this Cook
I am mostly a writer and editor for technical documents, but I have a passion for excellent cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Anything complicated!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is an incredible cook, and I have been lucky enough to pick up her knack. Our key tradition is to ensure that there is enough sauce in the pan, soup in the pot, bread in the oven and drinks in the glass!
My cooking triumphs
When I finally stopped burning water! (I am serious! I remember as a kid, I used to put a pot of water on the stove for Ramen, and then I would go watch TV or something and destroy the pan.) I would hide the pan because I couldn't scrub it clean and I was afraid my parents were going to find it! So, that was a triumph. Somewhere around 4th grade...
My cooking tragedies
I remember making a dinner and ruining it so bad we all just went to dinner out. Wait, which time was that? Ah, so many memories...

Conch Ceviche with Pineapple
Great recipe, but when I tasted it, I was a bit heavy on the cilantro. I did what others have suggested, slicing paper thin hot peppers, I used Jalepeno because that Is what I had. I also added 1 tablespoon of lime juice and a dash of seafood magic to pep it up.
