About this Cook
An accidental chef, who finds peace in preparation and joy in the destruction.
My favorite things to cook
DF/MF - I'm allergic to dairy, so I always find the substitutes, and I've been meat-free for two years, though I was once a big meat-lover and have no qualms about slow cooking some sweet BBQ chicken for my loved ones, when the day calls for it. I simply prefer to make meals without unnecessary chemicals. As fresh as it can come is important to me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad's chili... I'll have to dig up that recipe... my grandmother's lace cookies... and my mother's summer gazpacho soup.
My cooking triumphs
An incredible vegan basil pesto I found online made with cashews as the sub for cheese. I will find and post. (And credit.) Downright amazing.
My cooking tragedies
Nothing yet... they always seem salvageable.

Superb Sauteed Mushrooms
Insanely good. I add approximately a tablespoon of flour to the mix to thicken the sauce, so none of it gets left behind in the pan! I've done this recipe twice now, and tonight I used white truffle oil, instead of olive oil. Thanks for this great recipe! It has become a new favorite and staple!

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

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

Beautiful Broccoli Salad

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