About this Cook
Wife and mom of 3. Love cooking. Hate the cleanup, but I clean as I go. I love trying new ethnic dishes, but also cling to comfort foods.
My favorite things to cook
Asian meals, steamed rice with an impressive, flavorful main dish. I love braised anything. I try to keep things heart healthy for my family during the week and have an "anything we want" night on the weekends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Paula Deen's pot roast is the best and we have this at least 2 x's a month. We always eat dinner together. We pray together and enjoy cooking together. I try to include my kids in the process because they seem to be more likely to try new things that way.
My cooking triumphs
Winging it while making white clam chowder and having it turn out great.
My cooking tragedies
Getting distracted and not pulling things out of the oven before they turn to jerky.

Microwave Popcorn
I've been buying microwave popcorn for years (although I know it's got so many things that are unhealthy and that has always bothered me). My kids love popcorn but I don't like how it turns out when done in a pot because it doesn't stay dry enough. This worked great! I have a "popcorn" button on my microwave and always have to add another 30 seconds to the cook time to get all the the kernels to pop but it turns out perfect every time! Thank you for sharing. :)

Blueberry Sauce
To die for on top of steel-cut oatmeal with toasted almonds and little brown sugar. Healthy dessert breakfast... so darn good. I tripled the recipe and gave it to a few friends. We all go to Jamba juice to get their steel-cut oatmeal with blueberries, but now, we can have it at home too!

Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread
This was really satisfying. I was looking for something a little richer than your standard toasted butter with parmesan cheese on top of bread. My family really enjoyed this with the angel hair pasta I made tonight .... they asked for more....
