About this Cook
I rekindled my love of cooking when my job was eliminated due to corporate cut backs. Once I had the time to think, plan & prepare meals, cooking started to be fun again. Plus, it is an amazing outlet for my creative side.
My favorite things to cook
My family & I love asian cooking. I used to dread all of the prep. Now the children are old enough, so I have Sous Chefs. They don't even complain because they love the meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved cooking with my mother & grandmother. This was always a time to chat & catch up. Hopefully, my children will appreciate our cooking time.
My cooking triumphs
Creating a menu & directing the kitchen for a German Feast for 500 people at a church fundraiser. 5 people volunteered to help cook. After 12 hours of cooking, I enjoyed a wonderful bottle of wine & enjoyed the rest of the event.I especially enjoyed the requests for the name of the caterer. It was definately worth it, but never again!
My cooking tragedies
The first time that I made chicken mole in the slow cooker. I had given up on the hot red mush. I was just waited for my husband to get home & we went to a local Mexican place. Lesson : A slow cooker set on High for 9 hrs. turns chicken into hot mush

Cheesy Confetti Rice
My family loves this recipe!! We have made it as written & with changes. I've added different veggies, whatever I've had on hand. I've added cilantro & sour cream for a Mexican flair. It has been fabulous every time. My kids ask for it a couple times a week. Love! Love! Love!

Pot Stickers Traditional
I had never seen a recipe for pot stickers that called for the pork to be precooked, but decided to try it. The filling would not stay together. It was hard to fill the wonton wrappers. This lead to very little filling in each dumpling, which left them bland & unimpressive. I will return to using raw pork to make meatballs that fill the dumplings nicely. However, after cooking the left over filling, it was tasty served over rice with a little soy sauce.

Instant Pistachio Salad
Thank you! I completely forgot about this dish. My Grandmother used to make it often. I loved it. I quickly made it for my family. I became a kitchen hero. So again thank you, for bringing back lost memories, and making me look good with very little effort.
