About this Cook
I have a husband, 14 chickens and a cat, and we all live happily on two acres in the California High Desert.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook. Period. Some of favorite ethnic foods to cook are Asian and Italian. I'm also pretty good at low-fat/low-cal cooking. It all hinges on finding that really great recipe. I need to watch my sodium intake, so lately I've been looking for great low-sodium recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, the family gets together and we each contribute a homemade dish to the holiday meal. Luckily, everyone in my family is a pretty decent cook!
My cooking triumphs
One Christmas I made a pumpkin bread pudding with caramel sauce for dessert. One of my sisters loved it so much that she actually *stole* the leftovers and took them home with her.......not that I wouldn't have given them to her if she had asked.....but that was the best compliment I've ever received.
My cooking tragedies
One time I was having the family over for dinner and as I was carrying a big pot of food from the stove to the kitchen counter, I accidently tipped the pot and all of the food went SPLAT all over the floor.

Kongnamool (Korean Soybean Sprouts)
This was really good, but it didn't taste like kim chi at all. I don't know if my sprouts were mung bean or soybean, but they worked! I started timing once the water came back to a boil and they came out perfect. I didn't have Korean chili powder so I used cayenne (a lot less than 2 Tbsp. ), a little less sesame oil, and I used finely chopped leeks instead of green onions cuz that's all I had. Came out fantastic. The longer it sat, the better the flavors melded. I've added this to my recipe box and will definitely make it again. I'm sure the dressing would go very well on other lightly blanched veggies too.

I have to admit I only use this recipe to make the actual meatballs, which are excellent, and which I cook in chicken broth. I then use them to make my own homemade soup. I also use them to make my own version of Swedish meatballs! Delish! These meatballs are very versatile. Thanks for posting!

Black Bean Huevos Rancheros
This was really good, but a lot of work -- I ended up using three skillets. My husband thought it was too spicy for breakfast, but I loved it. Thanks.
