about me:

Mom taught me the basics. Both my parents went to night school when I was in grade school so I was cooking dinner when I was 12. Easy stuff like Japanese curry etc...

I rarely eat-out other than on dates and at gigs. I cook atleast once a day if I'm home. I was vegan for a year and now I don't eat cow, pig or chicken....legged animals. I still try and not use animal products and go as organic/local as possible.

I make things up with whatever I have. I don't usually use recipes for anything... too lazy and free-thinking!

I'm a horrible baker and I burn frozen food. I don't follow directions very well. I go more by instinct.

I don't have a sweet tooth, but the sweet stuff is the most fun for me to try and make because I suck at it and I have friends that will eat anything I make, no matter how weird. I don't usually eat my own cooking... I'm more a soup and salad person.

This is a case of whatever I have at home I feel like baking syndrome. You can't taste the chocolate or liqueur at all... I don't know why.

I had some wrappers and tuna in my fridge one day and was absolutely broke so, I made this w/much less ingredients than this recipe. Sorry , I don't do measurements or technique. I learned to cook from my mama.

Sometimes grapefruit can be too tart. Use up these unripe fruit with this sweet recipe.

My mom usually used egg and ground beef growing up. I've found that if you use mayonaise which has eggs and oil in it, that it's less gross to touch the ingredients and you don't need oil in the pan. Turkey needs a little more fat in it to stay moist etc. also. They carmelize really well in the pan.

This amazing flatbread is great on its own, or slice it in half for sandwich bread. I also like to cut it into small squares and serve as an appetizer.
