My favorite things to cook
Earthy and beautiful dishes with subtle flavouring that're also good for you.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili when the temperature hits the 50s in early fall.
Oyster stew and potato soup on Christmas Eve.
Cookies, fudge, and divinity at Christmas.
Fresh-from-the-garden cucumbers and onions in late June.
A supper of peas, new potatoes, green onions, radishes, and wilted lettuce straight from the garden in spring.
Sweet corn dripping with butter in July.
From-scratch angelfood cake on my birthday!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a picture-perfect lasagne.
My cooking tragedies
Every once in a while I forget to add the yeast when baking bread.
