About this Cook
My name is Kristen and I'm 22 years old. I just got married in July '07 and love trying out new recipes with my husband Zak. I absolutely love to cook! I like reading cooking magazines and watching the food network. This site is my favorite place to find new recipes and look at reviews.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook things that are healthy and nutritious. My husband and I love Italian and Mexican food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love entertaining and making dinner for people. I also love making dinner with my mom or mother-in-law.
My cooking triumphs
The first few meals I made for large family gatherings. I think I do a good job of planning and cooking great meals for a lot of people.
My cooking tragedies
I recently dropped a chicken pot pie on the oven door. eeek! :)
Recipe Reviews 8 reviews
Mmm this guacamole is awesome. I chopped the avocados because I like it chunky. I put onion, garlic, cilantro and jalepenos in the food processor (my husband doesn't like a strong taste of these things). When mixed with the lime juice, it coated the guac well and gave a great flavor throughout. Added cumin as others suggested. Yummy!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
This recipe is amazing! I use thawed frozen tilapia loins. Used light mayo and a small amount of butter. I had asparagus in the oven, so I sauteed the fish in EVOO for a few minutes on each side (like other reviewers I sprinkled both sides with Old Bay). Then I put it under the broiler with the mixture. Tasted like something that would come from an expensive seafood restaurant. A++

Broccoli Cheese Soup
This is a great soup! I listened to the reviews of others and used more than 160z. of broccoli...maybe about 24oz. The cornstarch really thickens the soup well. Before adding the cheese sauce, I used an immersion blender to puree the broccoli pieces (so that my broccoli-hating husband would try it). He loved the soup and so did everyone else. Thanks!
