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.

Basque Salad
Awesome salad! I served mine over arugula and ate it for lunch throughout the week, keeping the dressing separate until I was ready to eat. This is a very fresh and crisp salad, it will definitely be in my regular rotation.

Chicken Andouille Gumbo
Great recipe. I did saute some diced onion, omitted the file powder (I was out), and used boneless skinless chicken breasts (that's the only kind of chicken we like). The end result was delicious; my fiance proclaimed this to be the best version I've gumbo I've made so far.

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.
