Questions from Miami Herald readers have fueled Linda Cicero's weekly Cook's Corner column for more than 30 years. She started Cook's Corner while food editor of the Herald, and she continued it through family moves to Denver and northern Virginia. She has no formal culinary training other than cooking for family since she was 13.
