What is your favorite thing to cook?
A Mexican "Tres Leches" cake. You have to make the special cake from scratch, and then soak it in a milk sauce. Mmmmm!
What is your favorite ingredient?
Vermont Cabot butter
Do you have any dietary restrictions you use in cooking (i.e. vegetarian, diabetic)?
I personally do not, but have made a few sugar-free recipes, as my grandfather is diabetic. One of my sons also has a beef intolerance, so I've been experimenting with a lot of non-beef dishes.
What kitchen utensil can't you live with out?
My wooden spoons. I love my wooden spoons. I can never have enough of them! Even my kids love playing with them!
What kitchen utensil do you covet?
I would love to get the top-of-the-line Kitchen Aid professional, stainless steel BIG mixer. The horsepower in that thing is awesome!
What are your favorite types of foods?
I love Mexican food, but truly enjoy cooking typical suburban American dishes. I believe that every day cooking is becoming a lost art.
How many people do you usually cook for?
Any other personal info you'd like to share?
I really hope that my articles and recipes will help people find the kitchen a fun place to be! Cooking is never a chore for me - I make it fun! I always listen to music or NPR when I cook. My current tunes are from Led Zepplin!
