About this Cook
I'm a California native who is a an intermediate at cooking. My parents are from Mexico and Peru. Growing up, I ate a mix of American, Peruvian and Mexican food. My mother and grandmother are definitely my most favorite cooks! I'm married to a wonderful husband who lets me experiment with all different types of dishes. On my free time I like to be by the beach, read and listen to music.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook yellow curry. Thai food fascinates me. I also like to cook a Peruvian dish my mother use to make for my Dad but which I have no name for. I like to BBQ also.
My cooking triumphs
Oh gosh, as long as the dish comes out tasting great thats a good enough triumph for me!!!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make Mexican rice for the first time...so soggy!!!!

California Chicken
Marinated chicken all night in seasoning and vinegar then followed recipe as written. the only difference was I used lemon pepper seasoning with a little bit of garlic and Herbs of Provence. Served with couscous and salad. Boyfriend took one bite, got up and walked over to me and kissed me....he gave it more than 5 stars... :)

Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta
I have made this dish several times and each time it has come out a bit different. I suppose its because I make my own Cajun Seasoning...Anyhow, this time I have to recommend a couple of changes. Like other readers, I included zuchinni, a red bell pepper and a handful of sliced mushrooms. I cooked the veggies first in 1/2 c. of butter. Then I spooned the veggies out and set them aside. With the remaining butter in the saucepan, I melted 1/4 c butter and cooked the garlic and shrimp in it. FYI, I used pre-cooked shrimp(thawed) and took off the ends. I cooked them for about 1 minute. Then I spooned them out and set them aside. I then cooked 1/8 c. flour with 1 tbsp cajun seasoning in the same pan with the left over butter, mixing it to create a paste. Once the paste started forming I poured the milk in. I let the entire mixture simmer a bit until it thickened to my liking. Then I mixed the lemon juice, shrimp and veggies back into the sauce. I ended up serving the sauce over the pasta but the next time I make this dish I will make double the sauce so that I can mix in the pasta as well. This is one of my husbands favorite! Thanks!
