About this Cook
A quote I read recently that I loved: "Making supper from scratch for the Mr. and I will forever be some of the fondest memories of being young, creative, and full of love/hope." -Yokoo
My cooking tragedies
Oooh... too many to count! ;) Mix 2 parts limited attention span with 1 part inability to follow instructions and you have a number of memorable disasters. Perhaps the most laughable was my offering to help a friend get ready for a big dinner by mixing up her new brownie recipe. oh, had I only read through the recipe... (or asked!) i would have realized that this was a recipe for brownies AND icing... instead, this turned into one ..ummm... "interesting" dessert.

Quinoa Salad with Dried Fruit and Nuts
Unless you really, really like seasame, cut down on the seasame oil. 2T is way too much. It overpowers the entire dish.

Baked Pork Spring Rolls
Great recipe alternative to a fried spring roll. Recipe worked great. You have to be careful not to buy the "fresh" spring roll wrappers (which come in sheets of hard, clear rice paper that needs to be soaked). These wrappers are not meant to be cooked and will not bake well. I accidentally used these my first attempt at this recipe and while the result tasted good, it was soggy and just didn't bake crispy, regardless of how long in the oven.
