Early early forties and living in New York State’s Capital District – a place that some might call a gastronomical wasteland. Spring of 2013 will be taking me away from all this, and landing me in the Midwest – just outside Cleveland, Ohio to be exact. I am looking forward to chronicling my journeys there.
I have always loved cooking and baking (especially), and was organically trained in culinary skills by my talented and resourceful mother. My enthusiasm for food and cooking began with a simple gift from my mother when my sister and I were small- an Easy Bake Oven. Which she never let us use. She denies this. That frustration made me what I am today.
When it comes to food, I am sometimes inspired, sometimes lazy, and just about always hungry. My favorite food is hummus.
