About this Cook
I have an awesome husband and son that I am really starting to enjoy cooking for. We used to eat out almost every day but are trying really hard to eat at home all the time and save restaurants for a splurge! I try and be healthy for my son and be creative on a very limited budget. I like to experiment (although my husband doesn't always like the results). I'm a little bit OCD about everything in my house, so I've started writing menus for two weeks at a time, which totally eliminates the "what do you want? I don't know, what do you want?" after getting home from work! I read almost constantly when I'm not playing Hot Wheels with my son. I like to learn and try new things (am learning crochet currently, going to learn Hebrew next) and am always on the lookout for a new project. I love my family and my church.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with lots of veggies. Homemade pizza (crust and all from scratch). I love baking bread when it's cool enough to turn on the oven! I'll try almost any new recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies when I was little. Now I love to bake with my son (he likes to sit and eat flour out of the jar!). We love to make funny shaped pancakes together on weekend mornings.
My cooking triumphs
I'm good at making a great meal on an almost-empty pantry...in that sense just about every meal I make at the end of the shopping cycle is a triumph! I invented a great veggie-pasta-parmesan dish that my family loves. Also a dish my husband calls "burrito casserole" is always a hit when I serve it, so I guess that's a triumph too.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 12 and set the stove on fire making pasta (got distracted and was reading the newspaper by the stove and torched it). Blistered all the brand-new wallpaper near the stove! Also, I once managed to make a totally hollow loaf of bread (of course I had been planning to serve it to guests). Still don't know how that happened.

Tortillas I
These were delicious. I will make them exactly like this again and again. The hardest part by far was rolling the tortillas out. I am thinking about finding a good tortilla press to expedite the process, as I foresee making these from now on instead of purchasing them. I don't know if the recipe was off or if it was due to user error but I didn't get anywhere close to 60 tortillas out of these.

Caley's Classic Zucchini Bread
This bread is absolutely wonderful! I didn't use nuts and trust me, it doesn't need them. I will definitely be making this recipe again and again. Thank you!

Asian Potato Salad
This intimidated me at first because it seemed like such a bizarre combination, but it was delicious! The only substitution I made was I used Yukon Gold potatoes instead of red because that was what I had on hand. I made the rest exactly as written and found it to be a truly unique flavor. Nice job, thank you for sharing!
