I live in Northwest Oregon. I am an RN and professional knitter. My parents owned a French restaurant that became very successful and I learned to love cooking from them. I love to cook for others, so I have a lot of hungry friends. Besides my passion for cooking, I also love to spin and knit my own yarn, read, sew, just generally create.
My favorite foods are fresh, ripe, home-grown tomatos, artichokes, asparagus, eggplant, mayonaise (can anyone say Paula Deen) potatoes, hummus and nuts. I love to cook Indian and Middle Eastern food. My "famous" dishes are apple pie, cheesecake, cheese enchiladas and Moussaka. Every time I think I don't like a cuisine (Japanese, for example) someone comes up with a dish I like, so my prejudices have been all shot to pieces. My favorite restaurant was the old Spenger's Fish Market in Berkeley, California before they sold to the current owners, I'm still searching for a current favorite. I really like the Taste of Nature's Own in Chico, California. It's the most exciting restaurant I've been to in years.
