About this Cook
I have a 3 year old daughter who takes up most of my time away from work, but luckily she likes to watch me cook- and loves to imitate the whirring sound of my kitchen Aid mixer! She's starting to get into helping out with mixing and such- I can't wait to teach her all about cooking, baking and cake decorating!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and Decorate cakes- I've taken a beginner's class and an intermediate class. I love to cook anything else that sounds like it tastes good! Oh and anything involving potatoes is a favorite of mine! I also love to make candy and filled chocolates- I can thank my mother-in-law for introducing that new habit! My current Favorites are Grandma Johnson's Scones,Baked Potato Soup, Jerky Lover's Jerky, and Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies...MMM MMM!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is Filipino so I love her Adobo Chicken, Lumpia(like a meat-filled eggroll), and sinigung(Who knows how to spell it, but it tastes sooo good!)which is like a soup that you eat with rice. Whenever my family hears that I'm coming to visit, they know I'm coming to cook or bring treats! Every Christmas my family looks forward to my cookie and candy trays :)
My cooking triumphs
Baking cookies and cakes, lemon-rosemary chicken, steak skewers, bruschetta, foccacia, home fries, sliced fried potatoes, Variations of Grandma Johnson's Scones, Chicken Soup, There's too many to list in one sitting! I just hope this list continues to grow!
My cooking tragedies
Doughnuts-Oh they were horrible and what a mess! I know I've made other things that weren't so delicious, but I can't think of anything...I think I've blocked them out...

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
My family LOVED this- it was super easy to finish off when I got home from work. For toppings we used the extra lime, sour cream , lettuce, pico de gallo, and taco blend cheese. Delicious!

Coconut Shrimp I
Loved them! I didn't have beer so I just used milk and they still came out great. We used previously frozen shrimp and thawed them under cool running water. Def have to refrigerate after putting the batter on.

Blueberry Buckle
This was Awesome! I only added 1tsp of cinnamon, but other than that recipe remained the same. I did(completely by accident!!) use an entire stick of butter instead of a 1/2 stick for the topping but it was still delicious! I won't do it that way again, but it was worth it, as I usually put extra butter on it when I eat baked goods. I coated the blueberries with cornstarch so they wouldn't sink to the bottom. All in all- AWESOME!
