    Everyday Gourmet


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     cleonile2000, aka Stephanie, told me she's been reading and learning from Gourmet since she was little -- "My mom let me prepare a gourmet meal for our family each week when I was eleven. I’d pour through her Gourmet magazines and make multi-corse meals."

    Now that Gourmet is gone, she says she hopes all of the cooks that used Gourmet’s recipes for inspiration will continue cooking beautiful and tasty dishes. Sometimes not following a recipe is freeing."
    - lila, CNN iReport producer

    I love cooking and feeding people. When I have free time, you'll find me in the kitchen making up a new recipe.


    I like to have friends over and they know that I'll probably feed them something that they wouldn't make themselves. I like to expand people's taste buds. As you can tell from a few of the pictures, I mix some unusual flavors. These all worked well. I have guests that can vouch for me!
