About this Cook
I'm a 54 yr. old guy with the heart of a 16 yr. old ( ask me to show it to you some time...I keep it in my desk for easy access ). I'm the Undergraduate Administrator for Mathematics at Princeton University here in (surprisingly) Princeton, NJ. I'm in love with Christ, my wife Judith, the outdoors, music, science fiction and (here's another shocker) food!
My favorite things to cook
Having lived in the Southwest for a time, I learned to love the food: the reliance on simple fresh ingredients; poblano chiles, corn and flour tortillas, sopapillas (mmmmm...). I do a lot of Indian cooking, especially with spinach and the various kinds of flat breads (naan, roti, etc.) I'm also crazy about homemade soups and breads. But my greatest strength is turning a bunch of leftovers into something new and exciting. I HATE the idea of ham and pineapple on pizza!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is German, so I picked up a lot of good potato ideas. But we had a pretty eclectic range.
My cooking triumphs
I can take a disparate group of seemingly mis-matched leftovers or pieces of this and that and turn them into something new and exciting.
My cooking tragedies
I can take a disparate group of seemingly mis-matched leftovers or pieces of this and that and turn them into something even my dog won't eat.

Sesame Tilapia
A simple, tasty easy to make dish...what more could you want. I've tried it twice; once without the sesame oil and once without the Italian seasoning. Both worked very nicely, although using both tends to confuse the flavors.

Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas
Simple, real tasty and quick...what more could you ask for? Since I like a lot of "heat" in my food, I added some chopped fresh jalapeno peppers.

Vegetarian Meatloaf
This recipe can be very very good or very very bad....depends entirely on the barbeque sauce. Be very careful
