About this Cook
I'm a single 30-something redheaded woman who finds cooking as both a way to relax and as a personal challenge. I also enjoy reading, walking, ethnic and cultural festivals, travel, animals, and surfing the web for more recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I'm great at stir-fry, and experimenting with just about any kind of cuisine. I'm one of those pinch-and-dab kind of cooks. I also love baking bread and pastries. I tend to veer towards old European favorites, but am always up for something different.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister makes corned beef and cabbage every year for St. Patrick's day. I supply the soda bread, beer bread, and dessert.
My cooking triumphs
Teaching myself how make French pastry, especially croissants.
My cooking tragedies
Back in the early days, I didn't realize that habanero chilies were the strongest peppers ever and threw a big handful into my wok. My roommate and I were choking for days.

Chef John's Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing
So good! The only change I made is that I left out th blue cheese and sprinkled it on the salad just before serving.

Pumpkin Raisin Scones
These were AWESOME! I love scones, being something of a coffeehouse hanger-outer, and they make a perfect quick breakfast.
