I cook very sporadically. But when I do cook, a well-balanced menu with color, texture and flavor is what I strive for.
I'm also a spontaneous and craving-driven cook. That's why allrecipes.com is my #1 enabling technology!
My favorite things to cook
Things that can be made from easily accessible ingredients and look good in the end.
My cooking triumphs
Osso buco, creamy cheesy polenta and wilted greens, to replicate a seasonal dish I adored at Il Fornaio.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to cook a spaghetti dinner for about 20 famished skiers at 1,000 mi. elevation and that pasta just wouldn't boil!!!!
