About this Cook
I'm a foodie. I go out to eat often and I like to cook from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. Gourmet is my favorite cooking magazine and I'm not intimidated by complicated recipes. I am, however, a scatterbrained host. Cooking and talking can lead to comic omissions.
My favorite things to cook
I love to roast. Slow cooked fresh wild salmon, pot roast, stews and roasted chicken. It's also fun to improvise using ingredients on hand. I'll make pretty much anything from The Herbal Kitchen by Jerry Traunfeld.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm best known among friends for hosting Thanksgiving. Have started a few traditions using recipes found here, such as Beets and Sweets.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.
My cooking tragedies
Botched a cheese fondue recipe recently. It was dreadful.

Apricot/Cranberry Chutney
Outstanding. The modest amount of cider vinegar brings out the fruit flavors and cuts the cloying sweetness. I added a splash of orange flower water after cooling. For once even the diehard canned cranberry jelly folks raved about this. I'll make it again next year.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets
My guests raved about this easy dish at Christmas. I've been trying for years to find the right replacement for candied sweet potatoes and finally found a keeper. It's also beautiful on the table. Will definitely repeat next year.

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
