Spicy Indian Chicken and Mango Curry
About this Cook
I'm a military wife and a mother of four. We move a lot and in each new area, we find new things we like to try. Being in Cali now means more of a sustainable living kind of lifestyle, which is quite fun! I am a certified book nerd and I love trying new recipes for my family to eat!
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna...hands down. It's relatively simple and it tastes so delicious when it's all finished. I've started making our own bread recently and am enjoying learning the fine art of that process.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family never really had any cooking traditions. The biggest tradition was to stay out of the kitchen when someone was cooking. I'm trying to break that habit so that I can teach my kids how to cook and enjoy it.
My cooking triumphs
It would have to be my very first loaf of bread that I made. My husband took it to share with his colleagues and wound up coming home with requests for more bread from several people. They all thought it was delicious!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever tried making potato soup. I scorched the base mixture and didn't realize it until it was all done. Oh, it was horrid! I wound up pouring it all down the disposer and making sandwiches for dinner.

Almond Cupcake with Salted Caramel Buttercream Frosting
The cupcakes were divine when following the recipe as written! The frosting was good, but I had to do the caramel a little different because I was having some issues getting the cream to incorporate with it. Nothing that the blender on the liquefy setting couldn't take care of for me though. My only complaint is that apparently I did not make enough...because our dogs ate over half of them while they cooled on the racks! Little stinkers! However; the ones we did eat...were marvelous.

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli
Oh my, this was delicious! I will never again go out for Chinese again in search of Beef and Broccoli, when I know that I have this recipe to cook at home. Hands down, this was better than anything we've eaten in a restaurant.

Best Egg Rolls
This was just an okay recipe. We made it exactly as written and it was just missing something. Maybe next time I'll make some adjustments, but if I do that, then it won't be this recipe any longer. They were edible, but not the best we've ever had either.
