About this Cook
My partner and I love to travel and try new foods when we do...not like Andrew Zimmern with Bizarre Foods, but trying things from the country, city, region etc. We've lived across the US in 9 states and travel ouside of the country yearly. Usually in Europe but venturing to Asia this year.
My favorite things to cook
I was a novice at cooking until I started working part-time or not working at all for a while and I had to learn. I was also working at Williams-Sonoma and everyone I worked with cooked and I also had to help and advise people about cooking. I like to try anything, just not too complex and am trying healthier foods as of recent.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No real traditions here...but I love making sauce for pasta, homemade salsa, friendship bread.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked a full meal and everything turned out great...phew. That was about 8 years ago.
My cooking tragedies
To many to mention...nothing tragic, nor memorable, just wrong.

Chicken Enchiladas II
These are a winner! I do use cream of chicken soup, a de-boned rotisserie chicken, corn tortillas, I have used no fat cream cheese in place of the sour cream or low fat sour cream, no fat cheese is easy to use also....YUMMY!

D's Famous Salsa
This is the easiest, best tasting salsa ever. I have been using it for years since I bought and cookbook that it was in. I do add jalapenos to taste, a whole onion and don't measure anything since I've made it so much.
