I'm a full time office professional and my husband has his own home-based business. We both come from small town backgrounds and people who were fairly self-sufficient. We moved to Vashon to have the best of both worlds- close to Seattle yet still rural. We have 5 acres and always hope to do more gardening that we actually get done. Our biggest gardening focus is on fruits and vegetables (assuming the deer don't get everything)- so this informs much of our cooking adventures. I love literature, music and theater.
I enjoy cooking and I've found over the years that my interest has taken different paths. I care more and more about nutrition and the quality and locality of the food I eat. I tend to cook mostly from scratch- even if I have to stretch it out over several days because of my schedule. My two favorite cookbook authors are Mollie Katzen and Tom Douglas- a menu from these sources is pretty much guaranteed. I also cook extensively from Hollyhocks and Radishes by Bonnie Steward Mickelson- lots of great, basic recipes and a large section of vegetable recipes arranged by season!
