About this Cook
I am in the middle of my degree to major in buisness managment and culinary arts. I hope to open a small hotel/restraunt some day. I am a wife and mother of 2 (7 yrs and 3 months).
My favorite things to cook
Chicken- it is very versatile. I love to use dried fruits and vegetables, it gives such a rich and potent flavor! I love to bake- but being a mother of 2 and in school I tend to resort to the boxes more often than I like, cooking from scratch is not something that can be done 100% of the time like my grandparents did, and THAT is unfortunate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade donuts as well as the whole continental breakfast spread once a month on the weekend. Tea parties are fun- but the older child doesn't enjoy cooking as much as she used to. It's mostly just me in the kitchen... for now.
My cooking triumphs
I have invented several dishes that have gotten great reviews. They will be kept undre lock and key until I open my restraunt, then they will be my signature dishes. Also, I did the Thanksgiving bird and main sides this last Turkey day- it was wonderful. It was a molasses and red wine glaze over the turkey and three different kinds of mashed potatoes! Yuuuum!
My cooking tragedies
The orange and apple butternut squash stuffing I made a few years back. I put too much butter and it made me gag! I'm too scared to try it again. Anytime I burn the cookies is a real tragedy in this house. :'(

Tilapia with Creamy Sauce
good flavor. cream cheese was a little over powering for the simple fish. next time i'll add half cream chhese and half cream with slightly less lemon. made with plain jasmine rice to absorb some of the sauce- it's flavor was very strong.
