I'm married in live in Ann Arbor, MI - a great, diverse city. Having grown up in New York and spent lots of time in Vermont I have a strong desire to use the best, freshest ingredients and often shop at farmers' markets. I love the East Coast but am adjusting to life in the MidWest.
My favorite things to cook
I have always loved spicy ethnic foods so I especially enjoy making indian food as well as Mexican. I also enjoy making my own bread and anything Mediterranean.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We sat down to dinner as a family EVERY night, which I loved. During Lent, because of my allergy to fish, we had pizza and Coke on Friday nights (this was UNHEARD of any other time of year). I work a ton but enjoy cooking on the weekends or the random weeknight when I find myself home. Anything that works well left over is a plus.

My cooking triumphs
I make the best butternut squash lasagna on the planet.
My cooking tragedies
I learned the hard way that making bread where I live depends on the weather. It works beautifully in the winter but in the summer, the humidity makes it so the dough is just a wet mess and no matter what, I can't get it to cook through!
