About this Cook
I'm a mid 20's stay at home wifey. I have two beautiful little girls and an incredible husband who just so happens to love to cook with me! I was lucky enough to pay some attention to my mom when she was cooking in the kitchen and I am so grateful to her because I love so many different foods because she always made me,"try it." I have now adopted the same attitude with my girls and they are wonderful eaters :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pretty much everything. I'm always looking to become better and be less intimidated by certain pie crusts ;)I love to bake and make my home smell amazing for family and friends!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making delicious treats and goodies for the different holidays! But now, in my own family, we make a certain casserole every year for Christmas and the kids always help me make muffins...and in the evenings the hubby and I join forces to make some pretty incredible meals :)
My cooking triumphs
Cooking my 1st Turkey...I was so intimidated...but it turned out really good. The next step is to become more creative with it, now that I know what I'm doing :)
My cooking tragedies
Well...the one time I've made a pie crust, I burned it and it wasn't that great :( so that's an intimidated obstacle...and I'm an awful kneader...which is why I'm craving a Kitchen Aid :0 A red one to be more precise :)

Best Spanish Rice
I'm notorious for under-cooker rice. I finally got a rice maker, but I still want to be able to make rice dishes as well. This dish is perfect!

Grilled Sea Bass
The flavors were delicious smelling. And it tasted even better. The only thing was the cooking temp is a little high, it actually burned some of our fillets. I think next time we will just reduce the heat down and baby sit the fish a bit more carefully.
