About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I typically enjoy baking more than cooking. I think this is because of my propensity towards high fat, high sugar foods that will make me fat. Can I get an Amen?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tamales, although I still have trouble folding them just right.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime one of my children say something like, "Mom this is refreshing and delicious!" I remember why I feed them.
My cooking tragedies
My first wedding cake I baked about six layers before I got it right. Then there was the time I substituted all the ingredients in a pork loin recipe except for the pork loin. It even looked scary.

Maui Girl's Mango Pie
We did enjoy this pie. It was a nice change but somehow felt like an old classic. I did not have lemon juice and it still came out with a very nice consistency. Not too runny or too thick. We likened this more to a peach pie than an apple. Also, other reviewers are correct, this is not an overly sweet pie even with the mangoes being so sweet. If you prefer a sweeter pie you may want to add more sugar.

Sugarless Fruit Nut Muffins
I liked these. Due to the lack of processed sugar the flavor is slightly more complex. If you want it sweeter try adding a quarter cup of Agave Nectar. However, my kids ate them without any added sweetener and approved.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating
Definitely worth making. I only have a couple of suggestions that stay true to the original recipes. 1. Use course ground dijon, as it has more texture and depth of flavor. 2. Use Panko instead of bread crumbs. This also gives a coarser texture and is nice contrast to the softness of the salmon. 3. Enjoy! This is delicious.
