  • I am a web designer by day and a food enthusiast by night. I'm originally from the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area but moved to the west coast (first Oregon ans now California) three years ago. Prior to that I spent two years in France and Spain. Living in Europe not only made me a much more experimental cook, but also taught me about the importance of improvising in a recipe -- because on most days I could never find all of the ingredients I needed!

    I try to use fresh/seasonal market ingredients when available and I add hot peppers to pretty much everything (so watch out!). I hope you enjoy my recipes and feel free to share.

    Have fun browsing and even more fun cooking!

Salad With Herbed Cream Cheese Salmon Rolls

Cold smoked salmon and cream cheese is a wonderful treat in the summertime. This salad is refreshing and a tasty way to get those Omega–3 fatty acids! Olive oil and balsamic glaze or a seedy honey mustard is my personal choice for dressing this salad....

Mussels With White Wine & Shallots
