About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 young boys. I love to cook and create new recipes for my picky family. I'm married to a wonderful man from Great Britain, and when I brought him to the U.S. he came with a bland taste for food. We are slowly working on that!
My favorite things to cook
I like to try to cook new things. My favorite things to attempt are Indian, Thai and Italian foods. I also have a passion for baking, and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't! We are cookie fanatics in the house so i'm always trying new cookie recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has no taste buds so unfortunately my favorite family cooking traditions include making some of my favorite childhood dishes. "Goulash" is one of them, and it is comprised of hamburger, elbow macaroni, tomato juice and salt. Yummy. This is a bland staple in our house!
My cooking tragedies
I usually screw up recipes the first time I try them. It takes several attempts for me to successfully complete a recipe.

Mulligatawny Soup I
I consider myself an Indian food aficionado and average cook, but this just didn't taste to me like authentic Mulligatawny soup. I found this soup to be quite on the bland side. I followed to directions to the TEE and I don't know what went wrong, if anything. I think I'll move on and try another recipe to find that "taste" I am looking for. I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about, definitely not 5 stars.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
Ok, as another reviewer said, this recipe is NOT five stars, however, the recipe created with all the alterations may well be worthy of it. But it is not the recipe listed. Rating a recipe based on severe modifications made by you and not the exact recipe isn't fair. I made this recipe twice, one with the exact recipe and one with the recommended modifications. The original recipe is very bland, it just needed something. You can tell by the recipe itself there is a lack of spice and seasoning. I do love the idea of cream cheese in it though, it made it very creamy. The modified stroganoff was excellent and I do recommend people try it. Do exactly what is told in the reviews. Just don't come back here and rate the dish you made, because it's not the author's recipe.
