About this Cook
I am a fun loving little chef. I LOVE experimenting with new spices. I do prefer easier recipes to long complicated ones. I make kick-butt salads and my friends' friends know me as the salad lady.
My favorite things to cook
SPICY. Chicken and veggie recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
ehhh... we don't really have any.
My cooking triumphs
I make this great mustard rosemary chicken (of my own invention) that my friends call Kiss Ass chicken. If I could quantify the amounts needed, I would put it on this site, but it's one of those more by feel recipes:(
My cooking tragedies
Being too ADD to remember all the ingredients and then some things don't come out. Can be embarrassing. Aside from that, one time I followed a recipe on this site for some red wine vinegar chicken--I don't remember which one that was anymore. When I brought out purple tinted chicken to serve my friends, their reaction was, "what a waste of chicken." They were right.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence
Even my SUPER-picky 4-yr-old ate it! I used a smaller proportion for my small family. Put all the ingredients in a ziplock, put in some sandwich steaks, and pounded them in the marinade. Cooked immediately. YUM!

David's Yellow Cake
I think it's probably important that your eggs are at room temperature before starting. Leave them out for at least and hour before. We loved this cake. It came out wonderfully. Even my super picky in-laws liked it and said it reminded them of the cake that their mothers used to make. The cake was moist, not too sweet, and really wonderful. I made it a non-dairy cake by using margarine and soy milk. Thank you JDSIMON for a great cake recipe!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet
Yum. Didn't use "stewed" tomatoes but regular peeled and cubed ones. But since someone mentioned it, I looked up a recipe for stewed tomatoes. Seems that the major additions call for green pepper and sugar. So I added 1/2 green pepper finely chopped (sauteed with the onions, though added after they'd cooked for a couple of minutes) and about 3-4 tsps of sugar. Yum!
