Shrimp Scampi Bake over brown rice
About this Cook
I'm married to a vegetarian and love cooking with my husband. I'm an immigration lawyer and I like yoga. I'm also into wine tasting and love living in the Bay Area.
My favorite things to cook
I love tomatoes. I eat cheese every day. I want a pasta machine so I can make pasta with tomatoes and cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always make enchiladas for Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
I'm getting pretty good with pizzas. My favorite combo right now is BBQ sauce, mozzerella and cheddar, fresh corn, chopped tomatoes, and red onion. I also love risotto.
My cooking tragedies
My Indian curries are bad. And I can't get pad thai right.

Banana Muffins II
These are great. I made them slightly healthier by using 1/3 whole wheat flour and decreasing the sugar slightly. Added a touch of vanilla and cinnamon for more oomph.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers
I LOVE these turkey burgers. I normally find turkey burgers really boring but these completely changed my mind. They always come out juicy and flavorful and meaty.

Bean Soup With Kale
Great basic kale and bean soup. I added extra liquid because I added elbow pasta in the last 7 minutes to make it more substantial. I also sauteed my onions for a few minutes before adding the garlic.
