RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I love to cook just about anything. I tend to gravitate primarily towards Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. Sustainability in our food system is very important to me, which of course also translates into my recipes. My partner and my daughter are the primary guinea pigs for my cooking. They laugh when I say that I will make something simple and quick ? more often than not we eat dinner about 1 1/2 hours later. Cooking and baking is therapeutic for me, and I love to share my culinary inspirations and musings.
