About this Cook
I cook to relieve stress. I never knew the value of a good knife until I got a good knife. Now I don't know where I would be without it.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with eggplant, tomatoes, onions, garlic, herbs, and/lemons. Mediterranean therefore suits me best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a fantastic cook of Persian cuisine but unfortunately I haven't been able to glean very much of her knowledge. Someday in the future when there's time, I'd love to learn from her.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I get right.
My cooking tragedies
I once thought it would be a good idea to mix cheddar soup with chocolate. I was young, and I learned quickly that while the two on their own are quite delicious, together they don't have the same magic. It was worse that you can imagine.

Hummus III
I followed this recipes exactly, except that I took the skins off of the chickpeas. This is best hummus recipe I've found so far.

Sloppy Joes II
I tried this with fake ground meat and it was still excellent. Great for leftovers, too.
