Asparagus quiche
About this Cook
Married in 2005, no kids, 2 cats and a dachshund.
My favorite things to cook
I love slow-cooked Southwestern food--it's always so crowd-pleasing and easy to do. I also really like making vegetarian versions of traditional meat-based dishes and watching my friends and family not even miss the meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite ingredients are what I grew up with my mother using all the time: green peppers, onions, garlic, and bacon grease. You really can't make good fried potatoes without it.
My cooking triumphs
I finally got my own organic herb garden going, and I now use it almost every day with every dish. It makes all the difference in the world.
My cooking tragedies
Beef brisket, Mother's Day. It was dry and more leathery than beef jerky. *sighs*

Taco Seasoning I
I made this for my husband and I for tonight's dinner, and it was fantastic. I took all the ingredients and ground them in an electric coffee grinder and dumped right in with a pound and a half of hamburger meat, let simmer for about 20 minutes, and the results were great. Next time I will use half the salt; it was a little overpowering.

Mexican Pork Chops
I gave my husband this recipe to make for dinner (he's an extremely novice cook) and it turned out just fabulous. It's healthy, delicious, and requires very little prep work. Love it!

Mexican Cucumber Salad
This was so easy, and went fantastically with mexican smothered pork chops. SO simple, and if you chopped everything smaller would make a great salsa.
