I've loved to cook for as long as I can remember.  A vegetarian on and off (mostly on) for more than forty years, I think michael pollan's got it right: "eat food, not too much, mostly plants."

Below are some of my very favorite recipes. Most I created myself, but a few are adapted or lifted outright from others.
