I am a chemist who loves to eat and cook. I'm married and have a young son who loves to help me cook. My husband is a pretty good cook. I like to spend time to cook a nice meal on Sunday but during the week usually make something that is quick to put together. I also enjoy baking. I live in Newton, MA, not far from a wonderful market in Watertown called Russo's. The selection and quality of the produce there is amazing and inspiring. My favorite cookbook is Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. I strongly recommend it, particularly if you're in a rut about cooking vegetables. I shy away from recipes that are very time-consuming or have a very long list of ingredients.
