Woman entrepreneur in the business of helping organizations create unique cultures. In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf with my husband, traveling, and cooking at home. I like to explore healthy alternatives to traditional recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy finding and adapting recipes which are vegetarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, and reduced fat. We especially enjoy soups and salads. I like cooking with fresh ingredients (mostly vegetables, fruit, and fish) using simple methods such as steaming, baking, grilling or saute in light oil. I limit the use of fats and high glycemic index foods such as potatoes, root vegegables, corn, white rice, or white flour. I usually substitute whole brown rice, brown rice pasta, or other whole grains such as kashi, buckwheat, wild rice, barley and beans when I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have adopted a healthy lifestyle cooking tradition, mostly vegetarian with some fish, dairy, and eggs. We are focused on gluten-free, sugar-free, low glycemic, and low fat foods.
My cooking triumphs
Hickory smoked salmon on the outdoor grill is a favorite of friends and family. Also known for several good vegetarian soup and stew receipes.
My cooking tragedies
Baking cakes, pies, or pastries of any kind!
