I strive to create gourmet taste with simple, healthy, and inexpensive ingredients. Although I've accumulated many cookbooks over the years, my favorite recipes are still those passed down by family and friends or collected during my travels. The book that most shaped my cooking philosophy was Frances Moore Lappe's Diet for a Small Planet. I also enjoyed her more recent book, Hope's Edge.
