About this Cook
I'm wife to studmuffin Josh & mom of 3 girls, it's sometimes really fun and sweet and sometimes, umm... not so much. I do graphic and web design on the side. I love a good fufu drink like apple-tini's. I only cook vegetarian... but not vegetarians ;)
My favorite things to cook
Anything tasty but I especially love ethnic food. I make up recipes all the time mainly because I just have a bunch of random ingredients when it comes time to cook meals. I'm trying my hand at making my own baby food which is fun and I'm on a quest to make the best funeral potatoes ever. I love to make cupcakes and wedding cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with a good mom who wanted to give us healthy well rounded meals in her own way. We ate a lot of spam which is why I have been a vegetarian for 20+ years (no kidding!). My mom had a heavy and short rotation of meals, my parents loved eating the same things every week, which caused me to dislike some foods. I feel lucky though, my dad was from the south and had my mom cook classic southern food like grits which I love and okra, which I despise! I think of my food tradition as being more like anti-tradition aka utah food, I guess it's utah-americana... Lots of jello, funeral pototoes, casseroles, fruit salads, stews, and ward dinner potlucks!
My cooking triumphs
I whipped up a curry cheese soup recently and didn't really pay that much attention to what I was putting in it and my family gobbled it up and begged for more... and now I can't recreate it because I'm not exactly sure of what and how much I used of the ingredients, bummer.
My cooking tragedies
ugg.... Usually the stuff I just make up is ok and editable but once I made some rice with veggies and used a bottle of this 5 chinese spice thingie, I gave it to my daughter and was just about to start eating it when she began spewing rice all over the place, she said... "this is yuckie" I'm thinking it can be that bad, then took a bite, it was beyond yuckie, it was horrid. I threw it out and we went to get fast food and I almost never get fast food!

Raspberry Sauce
Doesn't get much better (or easier) than this... My modification was that I was out of oj so I used some grape juice, I think any acidic juice would work and I threw in 1/4 cup of organic strawberry jam. I put it on a cheese cake, they family gobbled it up!

Maple Dill Carrots
Wow, yummy! Really nice change from just baked carrots. My only change was the addition of 2 Tablespoons of real maple syrup.

Butternut Squash Soup
I always add 1 tsp. of garam masala (not spicy) curry and 1/2 tsp of regular (spicy) curry to the onions just in the last 2 or 3 minutes. It's just spicy enough for me and the kids. I also occasionally throw in 10-13 cheese ravioli's, just to make it go a little further. Def. in the heavy rotation!
