Redondo Beach, California
I'm an ASL student, former computer technician, and knitter in the Beach Cities area that loves to cook. I'm an ex-pescetarian, and use that sensibility in a lot of my dishes, because not every main dish needs to contain meat. I usually make up recipes as I go, not that I often share those, but the former Recipezaar is one of my favorite sites to check when I want to do something new and need ideas of how to proceed. I could be called a minimalist, because my favorite cookbooks are the three- and four-ingredient variety: There's something magic about being able to coax a fantastically tasty and pretty meal out of a minimum of ingredients. At the moment, I'm fascinated by color and twists on the traditional -- Blue potatoes in oil with caramelized onions. Roast chicken with blood oranges. Lavender sugar cookies with white chocolate chips.
