About this Cook
I'm a succulent wild woman often disguised as a happy house wife. I'm a substitute teacher (upper elementary) Mother of three great adults and wife of Tim, my best friend. I love cooking for my family and friends almost as well as I like eating, drinking and making merry.
My favorite things to cook
ummmm, Middle Eastern and Asian are my favorite. my sister's Mother-in-law was from Syria and she turned me on to stuffed grapeleaves, tabbouleh, mujaddra, and kibbie. Stirfrying and the flavors of Japanese and Chinese cuisine are weekly events, and Mexican food is also a favorite. Oh let's see... comfort foods and soups allow me to survive the cold winters and summer time is grilling heaven!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My paternal grandmother and my mom are excellent cooks who shared the love of family gatherings made more special with food. Our extended family will use any excuse to party. some favorites are a progressive dinner before Christmas to show off cooking and decorations, yearly fishing contests that end in a fish fry, canoe trips that showcase exotic appetizers and fancy cocktails, Chinese New Year Parties, and of course family dinners!

Double Dare Peaches
Well, I stole my wife's ID to write this review. She saw the recipe and we just happened to pick peaches yesterday and I had picked a couple habeneros during the week (they're not quite ripe yet). We had stuffed bell peppers for dinner with most ingredients from the garden, then she surprised me with this. My mouth is still tingling. The ice cream sweet and cool with the peaches hot and spicy is a perfect combination. Can't wait to share it with the family!

Vietnamese Spring Rolls
Made these last month and they were beautiful and delish! I added cucumber and spicy bean sprouts to the original recipe. Definate learning curve on using the rice wrappers, dip wraps for a second and roll quickly on a towel! The texture of the finished rolls was a little sticky so I served with and on lettuce leaves for easier handling.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
