There's a lovely little Greek place not far from our house, and we visited today to feature them for the column we write for a local family magazine.  I thoroughly enjoyed the hummus and tzatziki sauces, and the Greek Salad was to-die-for.  I tried Souvlaki for the first time, and it's going… MORE

first visit to seattle and it is my new favorite "big city."  the people are interesting and as a whole, so much more outgoing than in some of the other cities i've visited.  the city feels open and clean and there is still lots of green.  i know it helps that we were treated to some of the… MORE

About Me
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!
