I am a full-time attorney with an enterprising cooking habit and an entrepreneurial spirit. I hail from the Midwest, and have been living in Washington D.C. for going on 17 years. I have a dog; he is perfect.
I love healthy food, but I love it more when it doesn’t taste like healthy food – best of both worlds. At My Utensil Crock, you will find some of my tried and true recipes that I have been making for years – some that were so delicious, and rewarding to make, that I credit them for getting me hooked on cooking. You will also find some original recipes, and others I have found through various sources – friends and family, other blogs, websites, magazines, TV shows, the inside of a coffee filter box (true story), oh and cookbooks (remember them?) – that I am making for the first time, and if the finished product is worth sharing with you, I will. These are the recipes that keep me cooking.
While I don’t mind a challenge in the kitchen, I know that I am not in the majority on that front, so I will never pretend something is easier than it actually is. I will, however, simplify recipes as best I can for you. I will share tips and tricks along the way, with the hope that my experience is helpful and saves you some under-cooked cake and over-cooked chicken.
Why “My Utensil Crock”? The ceramic crock on my kitchen counter filled with my most-used gadgets is where I first turn when I need something in the kitchen; so when I was looking for a functional way to organize my most useful kitchen tools – recipes, tips, tricks, and more – my mind’s eye kept falling on … My Utensil Crock.
Have so much fun!
