About this Cook
i'm shue. growing up, we didn't eat junk food, so we spent a lot of time in the kitchen making desserts and baking muffins, cookies, bars, and cakes. after years of working in the restaurant and bar industry, i developed an appreciation for really good dishes with surprising elements. but i've only recently begun to think of myself more as a cook than as a baker. in the early days, my only forays into savory snacks were baking powder biscuits and fried cheese.
My favorite things to cook
vegetables, especially roasted or stir-fried. thai, indian, mexican, moroccan dishes...anything that incorporates unusual herbs and spices. BEANS! they are so versatile. i love to make sauteed white beans with rosemary, garlic, and a sprinkle of chopped kalamata olives. i love to use beans to replace dairy in creamy dips. and i recently used a recipe on this site to make a flourless chocolate ganache with garbanzo beans - fantastic!
My favorite family cooking traditions
sunday morning breakfast: coffee cake or danish puff, eggs, and strong black coffee pan fried cheddar cheese

White Beans and Tuna Salad
this was a pretty good salad. i did not blend this in the food processor. i left it with the normal tuna salad texture and used it as a superbowl party dip with crackers, french bread and (for the gluten-free guy), romaine lettuce leaves for wraps. since i didn't have Dijon, I used a spicy brown mustard instead. this salad calls for too much mayo/mustard for my liking. i cut both down to 1/3 cup and added the whole can of beans and extra diced vegetables (a whole orange pepper instead of 1/2, 2 stalks of celery, jalapeno stuffed green olives.) even with the extra stuff , it was more 'goopy' than it needed to be. next time i will try 1/4 cup each of mayo and mustard. although i would have loved to add the fresh cilantro and parsley, i didn't have them on hand. i imagine the fresh herbs would add a nice flavor. thanks for sharing!
