Recipes

When I worked in restaurant kitchens, I was very protective over my recipes, practically emotional. But here I am, sharing some silver bullets with you. Cooking with honey instead of sugar often means significant changes to a recipe, and I offer to you ones that work, that taste good, and that look good, too. Please treat them, and me, with respect, and use them for personal or charitable purposes only.

All recipes have been adjusted for altitude, and may not work for you in your Backyard.
The recipes assume a fair amount of comfort in the kitchen and are somewhat lacking in detail. Cooking lessons are not what this blog is about.

If you have questions, please leave a comment and I will do my best to help. Having taught at Cook Street School of Fine Cooking for a number of years, if I don't have the answer, I'm sure to know someone who does.

Happy Cooking!
