About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was 8 years old. My family is from Louisiana and Texas, so cooking spicy is in my blood. Cajun, and Tex-Mex meals were our favorites. Then I married my wonderful hubby...from the bland Mid-west. His idea of a exotic dinner was beef and noodles. So I'm trying to convert the dear man.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything spicy or sweet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my mom and 2 sisters, whatever it might be. Usually some thing sweet or spicy. My mom made sure we knew how to make pie crusts before we left home.
My cooking triumphs
Slowly getting my Indiana husband to try and enjoy new things that he never thought he would like! His mother is amazed he eats such a variety of dishes now.
My cooking tragedies
The first cake I made at 9 yrs old...I used 3 Tablespoons of soda instead of teaspoons..It tasted like salt. Once I made a carrot cake I made for a friend's birthday....the oil was bad, and I had to remake the whole thing. But it sure did look good!

Passover Zucchini-Stuffed Chicken
This was good, but I had to cook it much longer than it said. It needs to cook about 15-20 minutes longer. Very easy to make. I think if I made it again I would add more spices to kick up the flavor. My husband who doesn't like anything spicy loved it, though. For what that's worth.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak
Soooo yummy, and so easy! I cooked it on high in the crock pot for 2 hours. I also added more water because I like lots of sauce, and I served it with rice and chow mein noodles on top.
