I love keeping it simple. I think recipes with more than 5 ingredients are fooling themselves. If you start with fresh delicious ingredients that come from our farms, orchards and dairies, you can't add much without ruining their natural goodness. I also believe in making stuff up. I could follow the recipe, but I think they should more be used as guidelines. It's the sense of adventure in cooking that keeps me in the kitchen. I also love to cook as an expression of love toward my family and especially my future husband Dave.
