I've been cooking since I was 11 years old, which means I've been doing it ... awhile ;-). My biggest culinary influences? My folks, the astounding and unsung Jacquline Higuera McMahan, Rachael Ray, and Dr. Peter D'Adamo, originator of the Blood Type Diet. Besides cooking, my favorite pastimes are music, reading, movies, gardening, interior decorating, and pets.
I am absolutely insane about Mexican/Southwestern flavors, as well as Indian and Middle Eastern tastes, and good old American food. I also have a terrible sweet tooth. As for favorite starting points: steak, chicken, salmon, halibut shrimp, smoked fish, yams, parsnips, broccoli, dates, cherries, red flame grapes. If it has chile in it, I'll give it a try. My favorite desserts? Date Bars, Lemon Bars, Lime Bars, Gingerbread w/ Vanilla Butercream, Brownies, Nut Brittle, Boston Cream Pie, just about anything vanilla, caramel, or lemon, and many others that I'll probably be posting. Whatever the food, it has to be fresh and natural (except for that one beloved casserole from childhood).
