About this Cook
I've apparently had a knack and interest in cooking since I was in elementary school - thanks to my parents and grandparents who also possessed such and inspired me through their own cuisine choices, gourmet cooking groups, etc. I didn't choose it professionally as it was more of a hobby and I chose another profession (designer / consultant).
My favorite things to cook
Anything I can be creative cooking! I rarely follow recipes - I use them for 'inspiration' and 'suggested guidelines'. :) I don't care for baking as much. Too technical and not as much freedom.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father's career started as a chemist and he's a fantastic cook. He's fascinated with the 'chemistry' of how breads, pastas, etc. work together. One favorite family cooking tradition is he will play with that end of a meal and I'll whip up a complimentary other part (more creative). Great father-daughter time and great compliments to each other and a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Good question....anything I guess people want more of. Or ask for the recipe and I really can't give them one - don't use them many times.
My cooking tragedies
Anything creative baking related maybe. :) I applaud all pastry chefs....I'm amazed at the amount of creativity and time spent. I have no patience myself to make such masterpieces!

Vegan Pancakes
These were fantastic! I did make a couple of adjustments: I used 1c white whole wheat + 1/4c oats (instead of just flour),
