About this Cook
A mom to two kids (11 yo and 9 months) in Colorado, I rarely have as much time to cook as I'd like. I am currently learning to double up recipes and freeze one full meal as often as I can when I cook. I love to bake, but have struggled adapting to baking in high altitudes in the five years I've lived here, and don't do it nearly as often as I used to. I get a great deal of personal satisfaction out of cooking for and entertaining others. LOVE good restaurants and great wines.
My favorite things to cook
So many things! I love Enchilada's with all of the trimmings, Great meatballs, and salads with all of the best meats and cheeses. Also chocolate rugelach at Christmas time and my husbands favorite Tuna Pinwheels and blackberry cobbler for his birthday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The ton of christmas cookies and pastries every Christmas, creamed rice when I am not feeling well (that's what mom made me) and my comfort food Sausage Beans and Potatos.
My cooking triumphs
Serving family christmas brunches and dinners. I feel so gratified to cook up a fully rounded meal with all of the trimmings and a table set beautifully with China that I can then sit down to.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot cook a whole poultry (chicken or turkey) to save my life. This altitude baffles me! I can cook well, but my husband knows how to jerk my chain by reminding me of 3 hour cooked bloody chickens. Ack! Calling Domino's!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
This was good. We enjoyed it for a Mexican potluck. It still tasted of canned crescent rolls, so you can't get away from that. I liked the treat better the next day as the layers melded together. I would make it again.

Chicken Chimi in the Oven
This was a really nice recipe. I made per directions. I would imagine you can easily get away with not blending/processing the sauce. But I wanted to get a smooth sauce. I liked it very much. It was also relatively easy and quick to make.

Val and Jess's Vegan Avocado Dip
Fantastic! I always think I don't like Avacado. But I know it's good for me. This is a great way to get some in. Will go in regular rotation for me.
