Just about any occasion sends me to the kitchen to create. My pots and pans are my culinary canvas. I cook dinners for friends' birthdays, for holidays, and three times a day for my family.
My hope is that my descriptions and photos will inspire you to get out to the farmers markets or down an aisle at the grocery store that intimidates you, try some new ingredients, and get crazy with the herbs and spices!

A Literal Parade...of Baked Alaskas
With food available on a cruise ship twenty-four hours a day, you could easily characterize it as a food parade. But I had no idea that there would be a literal parade of food.
On our last formal evening, the kitchen crew paraded dozens of baked alaskas through the dining room while diners hooped, hollered, pounded on the tables, and waved their napkins in the air.
