About this Cook
I'm an Army Wife and mother of two precious girls. I'm originally from Southern California but am currently living in Texas. Right now I'm into cooking and baking. Just basically experimenting. I'm more of a baker though, but I do cook. I have a few recipes of my own that I've been wanting to put up just haven't had a chance to. I will soon! I have a six year old and a three year old little girl. they're such a ham! They're mommy's little helper. They loves to help me in the kitchen. My husband is a LT in the US Army. I come from a big family. I'm filipino and only know how to cook two filipino dishes so I'm hoping to change that soon. I LOVE I Love Lucy! I'm such a fan of hers. Hence DesiluGirl. HeHe. Well that's all for now.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken
This was a very good and simple recipe. I did also do the bake and then broil bit. I baked the chicken things at 375 for 45 minutes and then I broiled it for 5 more minutes to get a nice crisp on the skin. Instead of melting the butter and additional ingredients in the microwave I did it on the stove. I also doubled all the ingredients. I also seasoned the chicken with lemon pepper and garlic powder before pouring the butter mixture on top. Next time I will marinade it over night and maybe add some lemon juice in it! I served it with mixed veggies and white rice with some of the juice poured over it. It was an overall success for my picky family :)

Blueberry Buckle
This is a very good recipe! I was craving for some type of blueberry dessert and this definitely hit the spot! I didn't change a thing.. although I did have to cook it about 5 minutes longer than what was put since the top didn't look done at all. Overall a great recipe. It's also best when it's straight out of the oven =)

Basil Chicken and Pasta
This was very easy to make. I did add green beans to it. My kids loved it but it was too much for my lactose husband. Overall good recipe!
