About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook one-pot dishes and items I can freeze such as soups and chilis for quick meals because I am always on the go. I also love to cook with fresh, healthy foods such as salmon fillets and farmer's market vegatables when I have the time. Whole grains are also a big part of meals for me. I use whole wheat pasta almost all the time, brown rice, and have recently experimented with whole wheat couscous and quinoa.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was Italian and cooked everything from scratch...gnocci, bread, perogies, pasta, soups, and tons of baking. I want my mom and I to get together more often to keep her mother's recipes alive.
My cooking triumphs
Fresh salmon fillets with a sweet thai chili mango & yogurt sauce. Healthy and delicious and very easy to prepare!

Summer Salad with Cumin-Crusted Salmon
This is fantastic! Nice blend of flavors. Thanks to reviewers for tips to cut down the oil. Also agree that some cayenne on the salmon would be a nice touch. This will be in the regular rotation, even though it is a bit of a pricier meal.

Lemonade-Mint Iced Tea
I can't imagine making this as per the recipe. I used real brewed tea to avoid the sugar in instant iced tea powder. I used frozen lemonade as per recipe, which is also quite sweet. Added the juice of half a lemon (would have put a whole but that is all I had). I added zero sugar to this recipe and am very pleased with how it turned out - we prefer refreshing drinks in our household rather than sweet. I would suggest to start with very little sweetener and add to your taste. Great idea though, my new favorite summer drink!

Yummy Pesto Mashed Potatoes
Followed the suggestions of others and doubled the amount of pesto. Nice and easy way to add some flavor to mashed potatoes.
