About this Cook
I'm an interior designer by profession but also owned a little cafe for a few years, and love all things creative, which is why I also love to cook and create my own versions of recipes I find.
My favorite things to cook
My personal favorites are anything with way too many carbs!! If it has rice, pasta or potatoes, I'm probably going to love it. I'm not much of a meat eater so I particularly love dishes that are primarily vegetables...and carbs, of course.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family gathers here at my home every Sunday evening and they are always happy to test my new recipes. My mom is a baker and so usually I provide the main course and she brings on the pies, cakes or whatever strikes her fancy that day. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
Everything, of course! ...well most things anyway.
My cooking tragedies
My homemade ravioli....not so good. I'm going to attempt them once again someday!

Gold Fever Chicken Wing Sauce
Made this with chicken breasts and it turned out great. I used dried cilantro instead of basil, and only used 3 cloves of garlic. I put the extra marinade on the stove and simmered it for 10 minutes and poured it over the chicken and rice. Really good!

Jalapeno Hot Sauce
I LOVE this recipe. I add a bit of sugar and also a teaspoon of cumin, but otherwise make it just as directed. So good on everything!

Refried Beans Without the Refry I started the slow cooker last night before bed and woke up to a great smell wafting up to my bedroom! I used 6 cups of chicken broth and 3 cups of water and added NO salt until this morning when I mashed them with my stick blender (still in the crock pot). UNBELIEVEABLY GOOD...No need for my cereal...I've already had my breakfast! I keep going back for another spoonful and really have to stop so that there will be plenty for my party tonight!
