About this Cook
I am originally from Napa, California but have lived in the central valley for the past 12 years. I love cooking, and if I had my choice, would do it full time. Too bad it doesn't pay the same as my job starting out!! My dream is to someday open a resturant with my family and have that be our living and hobby.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook light and healthy gourmet meals. Cooking light magazine is my alternative to this website and you can't imagine how happy I was when they started the cooking light 5 star recipes!! Totally love it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are starting some in my family now. My family never cooked together so I don't have any to pass down. But at this point I am teaching all I know to my daughters and trying to get them to start some traditions with me.
My cooking triumphs
I am learning to improvise more and more. I am learning flavors and herbs and experimenting more.
My cooking tragedies
I have had a couple of mishaps with flavors that just didn't mix welll.....

Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
