About this Cook
I just started to get interested in cooking, and just really enjoy good tasting food! (who doesn't!)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with fresh ingredients since I moved to CA 5 years ago. I can't get enough!
My cooking triumphs
Learning tricks every day!
My cooking tragedies
My family will never let me forget the time I screwed up JELLO when I was young. I made one batch, looked at the bowl before putting it in the fridge to chill and thought, "That's not enough." So I made a second batch in the same bowl. Needless to say the gelatin didn't dissolve since the liquid wasn't hot enough.

Grilled Salmon with Habanero-Lime Butter
The flavors did not come out at all on my salmon. I marinated it in a ziploc bag for 2 hours. I followed the recipe exactly as listed and the only flavor came from the butter sauce, which I would have rather avoided to keep it a heart-healthy meal. I will try marinating it longer next time.

Jo's Rosemary Bread
It's a bit salty (but not too salty), which I confess makes it tasty. I will try it next time with 1/4 teaspoon less salt. Also, I haven't eaten at the macaroni grill in over 5 years - but everyone is right, it tastes just like their bread - it hit me when I took the first bite. It was delicious.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
I doubled the sauce like a few reviewers suggested, but that was not necessary. The original amount probably wouldn't have all fit in the pot pie anyway, close, but probably not all of it. Also, I found the chicken didn't all fit either, I would use about half. If you're conflicted, I suggest making all of it, and saving what you don't use, to pour over rice or pasta the next day :) Anyway the recipe was delicious, and an amazingly perfect sauce!!
