I love cooking, and in a chaotic life, there’s something really wonderful about following a recipe and knowing that, more or less, it will come out the way it is supposed to. There’s also something wonderful about not following a recipe, and making whatever the heck you want!

I spent one summer cooking for my parents, and you can see the results of that project here, on a Tumblr that I really enjoyed making.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I wrote a post about “cooking” good food without a real kitchen.

I used to have more recipes on this website, but I’ve cut down most of them and kept only the best. Here they are.
