About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom to three young children (all 10 and under). I love to try new recipes and tweak old ones. I'm always trying to find new ways to incorporate healthy recipes into my weekly meal rotation.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook just about everything. I'm willing to try to make new things, but I also enjoy making my old favorites...italian food, southern comfort food, soups, Thanksgiving meals, you name it. I try to incorporate as many fresh ingredients as I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to prepare food for my family and friends, especially during the holidays. Nothing makes me happier than to cook for one, a few, or many. :)
My cooking triumphs
Anything that my family will eat is considered a cooking triumph in my book.
My cooking tragedies
Years ago, I accidently reached in to the oven to pull out a cookie sheet full of cookies with my bare hand. I had the oven mitt on the other hand, but for some reason (which escapes me to this day), I used my bare hand to pull the cookie sheet out! Needless to say, I burned myself pretty badly.

Japanese Potsticker Dip
Exactly how my Japanese mother made it and how I remember it growing up. I make mine this way, too. Sometimes, I will use hot sesame oil in place of chili oil.

Dominican Style Oatmeal
This was so delicious. Creamy, satisfying and just right. I made one serving, just for me, to test it out. I can't say how much I think this is the perfect oatmeal recipe as is. I imagine you can leave out the salt and/or add different fruits and still have it just be a great oatmeal base, too.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze
These were delicious! Served them with pork chops one night then atop burgers the following night. Quick and easy to prepare just as is. :)
