About this Cook
I work at a grocery store because I love to be around food all the time and help people with their food choices. Other than that, I'm a certified yoga teacher and a passionate vegetable gardener.
My favorite things to cook
Anything simple. I love to let the ingredients speak for themselves. Nothing I make is from a mix, unless that mix has recognizable ingredients, and then only seldom.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a lot of recipes from Australia, since that is where my mother and grandmother were born. Those recipes tend to be as eclectic as American stuff, though, since both Americans and Australians come from many traditions. I love our zucchini leek soup and pastis.
My cooking triumphs
I am thankful to eat any food, let alone good, fresh food that I can make and serve with love. Each time I remember to be thankful, it's a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
It took me some time to learn how to read recipes. When I was a kid, I used to start throwing the ingredients in the bowl in the order listed at the beginning! My Dad had to eat so many of those huge, flat cookies.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Wow. Tender, golden, fluffy delights. You don't have to change a thing on this recipe. I ended up with inch-thick cakes with a crispy crust. I fried them in coconut oil on a nonstick pan.

Horseradish Sauce
I could really tell that this was reduced fat. I think the flavor would be much improved by replacing some of the reduced fat ingredients with their full fat brethren. I have only tasted it on the spoon; it will be more tolerable with the corned beef I'm serving tomorrow.
