About this Cook
I'm a graduate student who's been eating mostly local since June 2007- expanding my repertoire from 30 years of choco chip cookies to trying to cook everything ELSE from scratch. I'm also learning how to cook locally available foods like swiss chard and turnips, in season. It's been fun but I still have a lot to learn.
My favorite things to cook
Zucchini is number 1 for ease and versatility. I still love chocolate chip cookies too and now I can combine the two ingredients!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's apple pies are the best I've ever tasted, and our family's chestnut stuffing is unique and flavorful.
My cooking triumphs
Hmm, I've triumphed when I don't ruin the ingredients. My apple-pumpkin muffins were impressive enough to share.
My cooking tragedies
These things happen. I just forget them.

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili
This recipe has lots of tasty veggies and is healthy. I think it could use a little bit more chili powder or chipotle pepper.

Peasant Bread
Made a very small dense loaf. I took the advice of one of the reviewers and reduced the amount of water- probably a mistake since the dough seemed too dry during mixing and I had to add some.

Butterscotch Apple Dumplings
You don't need the butterscotch topping for this to be good. The crust came out excellent, and I used whole wheat pastry flour.
