About this Cook
I love to cook and my favorite way to spend an evening is making dinner with my hubby. I do a lot of entertaining and am always looking for new, interesting recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything grilled (especially fruits and veggies), Mexican food, vegetarian recipes, fun desserts, and cocktails!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade noodles for chicken soup on a cold winter day. Making Mom's Pork Chile Verde on SuperBowl Sunday. Beer can chicken for the boys on a Saturday afternoon.
My cooking triumphs
I entertain a lot and it's always successful. Everytime I pull off another party it's a triumph. :)
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had too many tragedies - mostly they involve dropping food upside down in the oven (clumsy :) ). There was also an incident involing candy called 'fairy food' which i care not to repeat.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
This is the only pancake recipe I will ever use again. Very simple, and the pancakes come out fluffy and perfect.

Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream
The combination of lemon and blackberry is superb and the little cakes with purple frosting look so pretty! As others stated, the cake recipe doesn't yield 24 cupcakes. I ended up with 15. It doesn't rise a lot, so if you fill the papers about 2/3 of the way, the cake should rise just to the top of the papers. The buttercream icing does seem a little sweet on its own, but as soon as you put it on the lemon cake, it's perfect! I would also like to try it with strawberry or raspberry jam next time.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
Simple yet so good! The dressing is perfect, if, like other reviewers said, you reduce the oil by a little bit. I also added some matchstick carrots for a bit of crunch and to sneak in some more servings of veggies. This is something I'll make a big batch of and pack for my workday lunches. Yummy, easy, satisfying recipe!
