Ready to get some new healthy recipes!
About this Cook
Im a wife and a mother of 2 so Im always looking for new recipes so we dont get bored.My husband and I have been trying to loose weight for some time and I want to plan my meals before I go to the supermarket.Also I like quick and easy recipes so If anybody has any suggestions....Im open!
My favorite things to cook
I like stir-fry with beef or pork and veggies.I love cooking everything with garlic and sometimes when Im feeling lazy I just pop some chicken or fish in the oven with some zesty marinade with some steamed veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dont really have any
My cooking triumphs
When my husband and kids clean their plate and ask for seconds.
My cooking tragedies
When my heart is not really into it and I just kind of half heartedly make stuff and it turns out bad according to my standards.

Brazilian Fish Stew
I made this before and followed the recipe exactly without all of the peppers (just one red pepper).It turned out ok,well this time i used light coconut milk and 2 cups of chicken broth just to make it soupier.I made the mistake of using curry instead of cumin but it came out just as good,if not better.Just too spicy for our little ones,but when i make this only my husband and I enjoy it anyway so..overall this is a keeper and very easy to make.

Cajun Roasted Pork Loin
I got a 5 1/2 lb pork loin roast and cut it in half and froze the other half.I followed the recipe to the tee,but i noticed when it didnt say whether you have to cover or not.I covered it at 300 degrees so the veggies wont dry out.I cooked for about an hour (smelled so devine)turned up the temp to 425 for an additional 15 min.When i took out the meat i didnt have alot of juice so i added a packet of onion soup mix and a half a cup of water to the juice,broth and flour.The gravy was soo smooth and flavorful!I also added a dash more of the cayenne pepper being as though we love the spiceness.This is an awesome recipe,and very easy.Will definently try again,next time in the crock!
