About this Cook
I'm 31, recently engaged, and looking forward to my wedding on 12/13/14! I love to cook, but baking is another story. Maybe someday I'll master that art....
My favorite things to cook
I'm willing to try almost anything at least once.
My cooking tragedies
Baking. Anything related to baking, especially breads. I am just TERRIBLE. Nothing ever turns out right.

Santa Fe Rice Salad
This was so good. I used rice wine vinegar and left out the sugar and avocado (mine had gone bad). I also added a dash of cumin. I ate mine with tortilla chips, but the next time I'd use this for a homemade burrito bowl.

Zesty Quinoa Salad
I've made many variations of this recipe, and it never fails to please. I followed as is, except I had to leave out the beans because I absentmindedly purchased REFRIED black beans. Yeah, those wouldn't work too well! I also used a bit more cumin and red pepper flakes (personal preference).

Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
I love being able to use my slow cooker whenever possible. That being said, I was eager to try out a gumbo recipe involving a slow cooker. I followed the recipe for the most part, but I didn't precook the chicken. I cubed it, and threw it in with the rest of the ingredients. For the smoked sausage, I used Andouille, of course. The end result was good, but a bit bland. I'm not sure what it was missing. It was still good, and edible. The fiance was a bit disappointed in the vegetable/meat ratio, but he still managed to eat it. I'd probably try this again sometime.
