Hi! I’m Ruth. I like music, hot coffee, cooking, and crosswords. I’m originally from Seattle, but now live in Toronto because I married a Canadian boy. I’m a professional harpist and an amateur home cook and baker. Cook Til Delicious is my attempt to document home food experiments and share some of my favorite recipes — some passed down, and some developed in my kitchen. You can read more about how I got into cooking/baking in this post!

Why Cook Til Delicious?

The blog name was inspired by what my husband (also an avid home cook) often says when I ask him how he made something (“I just cook it…til it’s delicious…”). The phrase also sums up my home cooking philosophy: use a recipe or not — but always taste, adjust, improvise, and cook til delicious!

Foods I find delicious: mushrooms, eggs, salmon, freshly baked bread, dark chocolate, pretzels, wontons/dumplings/wrapped foods, brussels sprouts, coffee, sushi, flaky sea salt, oatmeal raisin cookies, daikon radish

Foods I find less delicious: green peas, taro, red bean paste, raw bananas, beets

  1. Hello Ruth!

    It’s Cristina with @heyboojams in SF. I’ve been a long time admirer of your work on IG! Do you work with brands? We’d love to ship you some of our products to try with your baking adventures. If something works out that’s great, if not then at least we’ve tried!

    What do you think? 🙂
