Eating is a necessity. However, we choose what to eat. The choices we make reveal a great deal about us. The food you eat can tell quite a bit about your heritage, your family, your fears, your sense of adventure, your attitude toward yourself and others, and a myriad of other personal tidbits to anyone paying attention. Everything about eating is a glimpse into your soul.

I hope to reveal a little bit about myself to you through my food. I enjoy cooking. I enjoy eating. I find pleasure in bringing pleasure to others. I hope that by sharing my recipes I bring you a little bit of joy.

Cook my food. Feed it to the people you love.

Tartar Sauce

If you can avoid things that come pre-made in a jar, then you should. This is so much better than a factory-made tartar sauce. Serve with Grown-up Fish Sticks.

Hardware:  Measuring spoons and cups, an airtight container, a mixing bowl, a silicone spatula, a zester
Tartar Sauce

  • 1 cup of mayo
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 3 heaping tablespoons dill pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt to taste

Zest and squeeze the lemon. Mince the chives. Mix the mayo, lemon juice and zest, the chives, the capers, the dill pickle relish and the pepper together. Place in the airtight container for at least 2 hours. Taste right before serving and adjust the salt.
