About this Cook
I have in the past year recently started enjoying cooking. After working in sandwich shops for four years and then having a desk job, I missed preparing food for people as strange as that sounds. I enjoy cooking dinner and trying out many new recipes for my boyfriend and I.
My favorite things to cook
I like baking chicken and making pastas. I just recently started dipping my hands in vegetarian dishes. We'll see how it goes!
My cooking triumphs
I am pretty good at baking salmon and coming up with new baked chicken seasoning combinations and marinades as I get tired of eating the same old things for dinner.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make this jambalaya that I found a recipe for from this site and it turned out horrible!. No flavor and too much rice was used and it got way overcooked. Oh well lesson learned!!

Fried Rice with Cilantro
I was a little nervous about making this and it turned out fantastic! The boyfriend loved it and the cilantro was an interesting kick! I was most nervous about the fish sauce but it turned out fine. Must definitely add sesame oil and an egg to top it off!

Amy's Spicy Beans and Rice
This is one of my favorite meatless meals to make. I fell in love with brown rice after trying this recipe-at first I was a little apprehensive about it. I didn't have any jalapeƱos but I just about added every hot spice that I own and it was delicious! I did not drain the black beans and it was still great I thought.

Maple Salmon
I gave this recipe five stars because this was the first time I had ever made fish and it was sooooo easy and good! My boyfriend loved it even though after dinner he confessed he never even really like salmon before. And it is one of the only recipes I have ever followed exactly and it turned out how I wanted. Very good stuff!
