  • 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!

Gỏi cuốn (Vietnamese Summer Rolls)

I’ve recently started making Gỏi cuốn (literally summer or salad roll) quite often, as it makes a nice and healthy lunch, and I love the hands-on aspect of everybody at the table making their own. I like to pile ingredients on a plate or cutting...
