About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. So anything that I think my family will eat, I'll try it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I LOVE to make Thanksgiving dinner for the family. I also always make Corned Beef and Cabbage with Potatoes for me and my daughters. My boyfriend hates it!

First time I ever had ceviche was this past summer on Block Island, RI. I haven'stopped thinking about that martini glass filled with baby scallops and shrimps ever since! I decided what better time to make me some of this than New Years Eve! It cam out perfect! It didn't take all night, overnight to cook the seafood in the lime juice. 1 hour !/2 tops. I used large shrimp cut into pieces and baby scallops. I omitted the green onion and used white. No celery, bell pepper, parsley or olive oil. I used 1/2 Jalapeno pepper instead and a dash or 2 or Cayenne pepper and a few pinches of Kosher salt served with a few Tortilla Chips on the side....This def a nice summertime dish and I will be making this one again!

Quinoa and Black Beans
WOW!!! This is DELISH! I added Red Bell pepper and used Red Onion. I also used Curry powder instead of Cayenne Pepper. And as a lot of people on here said, watch the salt! I used about a teaspoon of Sea Salt and it was a tad bit too salty for my liking. Overall this is a fabulous recipe for Quinoa!
