About this Cook
Currently living in Sarasota, FL, via Austin, TX, but originally from Chicago. I've traveled all over the world: China, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Greece, Italy, Turkey, and South Africa...And I have to admit that one of my favorite things about traveling to new places is sampling the local cuisine.
My favorite things to cook
When I cook I try to incorporate elements from the different places I've been...But mostly vegetarian! I really love asian and mexican cuisine but also enjoy cooking some lasagna now and then.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom always made our favorite dish for our birthdays.

Spiced Pears and Pomegranate
Just the kind of dessert that my boyfriend and I like. Crisp and fresh. I was out of lemons and ended up using apple cider vinegar- not a bad substitute. Tastes like fall :)
