About this Cook
Since I'm not married or have kids, I cook for friends. I am always inviting people over for meals and love being able to share delicious food with them.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food. I love making food that makes people feel welcome and reminds them of home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are huge foodies and have made some amazing meals over the years. We will all gather at their house once a month or so and gorge ourselves on 5-course meals.
My cooking triumphs
Being comfortable enough with food to be able to invent recipes. I rarely follow a recipe exactly and often make up food on the spot.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 11, my mom had made cupcakes and was waiting for them to cool before putting on frosting. When she went to the store, I thought I would be helpful and whip up the frosting for her. I found a recipe but didn't know what confectioner's sugar was, so I used regular. Even though it didn't have the right texture, I still put it on the cupcakes... or rather poured it on. Thank heavens my mom has a sense of humor and just laughed when she saw blue goo running down her cupcakes.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair
This was delicious! As a birthday gift for a friend, I put all of the ingredients in a basket and gave it to her with the recipe. She loved it too!

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs
The taste is strong, but delicious. I served it with corn on the cob that I squeezed lime on and spread with cilantro butter.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II
Absolutely amazing! I served this at a party and it was gone within minutes. I will be making this again, that's for sure.
