Me and Sam :D
About this Cook
I'm recently married and learning to cook for the varying tastes of my newly matched family. I am a full time mom, Theology student, and lover of art, food, music, and travel.
My favorite things to cook
The most fun experiences I have are cooking anything I haven't tried and can modify the recipe! I love trying new foods and ingredients, and I never make the same dish twice because I am always tweaking as I go.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade Pizza with Sourdough crust for Christmas, Eggrolls from scratch, Farmers Market ingredients, Artisan Bread.
My cooking triumphs
Crème Brûlée taught by my Uncle Danny, and a big Korean dinner as a going-away celebration for my sister's semester abroad.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count! LOL! These happen less and less often thank goodness, but are usually caused by distractions leading to forgotten ingredients or burned entree's. And occasionally my very broad and tolerant palette leads to a dish that nobody but me will actually enjoy, often including lots of Zucchini or seafood. ;)

Luscious Slush Punch
Wonderful! This batch goes a long way but it also goes FAST! We made it as described but with slightly less sugar and it was fantastic. Those who wanted to spiked their punch wih Coconut Rum which was a great combination - made a very tropical drink! This time for a baby shower I used one orange and one lemon jello to get a nice bright orange color, only 1/3 cup lemon juice, one frozen lemonaide concentrate, and only about a half cup of sugar. It is a nice change in flavor - slightly tarter with all the citrus and very good!
