About this Cook
I'm married to a fantastic man, a college student, and pretty active. I DJ a couple nights a week and I love punk, reggaeton, rock, salsa, hiphop, bachata, grunge, and merengue music. I like to swim and lift weights, and I'm working on learning to surf.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles, super-healthy spur-of-the-moment concoctions, creative desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
California soup, spaghetti, taco salad with a side of story.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook in a tiny toaster oven in Japan. Learning to cook for 2 instead of 5.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken I forgot about when hubby came home to take me to dinner. A brownie that would only cook on one side. A seed left in the avocado as it went in the blender.

Creamy Hot Cocoa
Way, way, way too sweet. I love sugar, but this was ridiculous. I followed reviews and added only 1/2 a cup and it was still super sweet. I made it with just a touch over 1/3 cup and it was delicious. I didn't bother with 1/2 and 1/2 as I'm lactose intolerant. So I'm not even sure if I made this recipe, in the end. I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa and my favorite was with Lactaid milk and Sugar in the Raw. The vanilla was unnecessary but a nice touch, if you have the good stuff. I drank a pot by myself two nights in a row.

Pineapple Chicken
My husband and I literally licked our plates, this was so good! I only used two chicken breasts, sliced into long 1/4" thick pieces. I also changed the recipe according to previous notes in the following way: Dust chicken in black pepper and garlic before browning. Use no water, but use 1 1/4 cup pineapple juice. Add 1/2-3/4 tbsp soy sauce, 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar with one full packet of onion soup. Add pineapple chunks/rings, 2 heaping tbsp flour, 1 1/2 tbsp garlic in last 5 minutes to thicken and flavor. I only let this simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes. Served over white rice with a small amount of butter, with green salad with ranch on the side.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II
I absolutely love this recipe, and my husband cleaned his plate in under 10 minutes. I used only two chicken breast and kept the rest the same, and it was the perfect amount. I think if I were to make this for more people, I'd add more soup and bread crumbs. Great with green beans.
