About this Cook
I love eating out at fancy restaurants... new american and asian cosine are my favorites. I find so much joy in the perfect combination of flavors, I never thought I could love it more... and then i got pregnant! Now food tastes even more amazing... and I have a new found passion for food!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking like I am eating in a fancy restaurant. My mom says i cook like everyday is sunday dinner. I love presenting my food in a neat way, usually fanning out avocado slices is my signature. I also love to use honey and sea salt in my meals... you can be almost guaranteed both ingredients in anything I cook.
My cooking tragedies
Oh Oh Oh I cannot believe I am being asked about this!! I have to say, without a doubt, the worst thing I have ever cooked is LAMB. I consider myself a very good cook and, quite frankly, I blame it on the meat. I went out and bought a very expensive organic rack of lamb, marinated it overnight, and even interlocked the ribs to stand up on the pan with veggies underneath. i thought it would be amazing. I don't know WHAT went wrong but, whatever it was, went terribly so, inundating my apartment with the most wretched smell that lasted for days. It was absolutely INEDIBLE.

Crescent Pizza Pockets
Sooooo fast to make, and the kids will love it. It is definitely the type of meal you need on one of those days you forget to cook and then realize its an hour until bedtime. I would suggest salting the top of the pocket before baking, and don't be stingy on the cheese.

Teri Tips
OK OK So I didn't cut it up... I just felt terrible doing that to such an amazing cut of meat. It was wonderful just grilled to medium rare after marinating just like suggested. I didn't think the sauce was that amazing, but overall a very successful dish... thanks so much for using real ingredients!!!

Mango Chicken with Greens
This was very sweet, the sauce has the consistency of an applesauce and it has pretty good flavor, I just don't know how much it's worth the work. I did it without the greens or raisins and used regular strips instead of drumsticks.
