I'm an artist and musician from the Portland Oregon area. I love to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake... I'm armed with my great grandpa's secret recipe. I'm literally not allowed to show up to family functions without cheesecake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast... The men in my family have a reputation for making incredible breakfast.
My cooking triumphs
Anything people will eat. If it's something new I'll look up 4 or 5 recipes to find common ingredients and techniques and then wing it from there.
My cooking tragedies
Anything new is an experiment... and there are not always good results. Always have a backup plan ready.
