I am the oldest daughter in a blended family of 11. I've been a Registered Nurse for more than 15 years, working swing or night shifts in a variety of settings. I'm a completely self taught cook, and only wish the super easy, Mr. Food type of cookbooks were around when I was struggling!
For fun I love to read, listen to music or create new taste sensations for my small family and (lucky) co-workers.
I've written almost 750 reviews on music/books/cookware and more, (including probbably 100 easy recipes), at Epinions.com, in the past 5 years.
You'll find me tending my backyard container garden, (avocado, mango, guava, pomegranate, artichoke, grape tomato, herbs, shallots, Flame grapes, Golden Delicious apples, blueberries, Pluots, Apriums, Peachcots and so on), or playing with our puppy and 2 kitties-all 3 rescue animals from various shelters.
I love seafood/shellfish, Thai and Hawaiian dishes, chocolate and fruit desserts, and trying local regional cusine, collecting the cookbooks for same and meeting the chefs involved.
Some of my signature dishes include Pork Loin Scrapple, chicken mole, chil verde, coconut curry, pineapple cheesecake with macadamia nut crust, cheese balls stuffed with sausage and a killer spaghetti sauce and fork tender pork schnitzel with allspice cream sauce.
I'd brake for lobster rolls, marinated crab claws, coconut shrimp, blueberry pie or muffins, bastilla, kibbeh, souvalaki, prime rib, barbecued brisket or rib eye steak, cheese cake, sweet potato pie, or German chocolate cake.
