About this Cook
I'm new to cooking, but it is a growing love of mine. I can tell it's going to be a big thing in my life! I always try to eat as healthy as possible, so you'll see me substituting olive oil whenever possible and using lots of veggies.
My favorite things to cook
Thai noodles are easy, healthy and delicious! Spanish tapas and wine pairings are where I find the most joy so far, amazing! I LOVE seafood, so bring on the fish and shellfish recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Bacon with Broccoli, cooking eggs in bacon grease, mom's beef stroganoff, mushroom soup over pork chops. Can you see why I decided to start eating healthier as an adult? Now we just cook the eggs in bacon grease on special occasions...
My cooking triumphs
I've pretty much mastered Thai spicy noodles with tofu, SO good! My best pairing was with my boyfriend cooking a Spanish savory squid risotto and I matched the perfect Tempranillo from Rioja! The best home cooking experience to date!
My cooking tragedies
Mostly 70% of the things I try are fails, I've even ruined spaghetti. I'm on a mission to improve my track record.

Beef Stroganoff III
Fantastic as is. I skipped the egg noodles and served with mashed potatoes. Potatoes: Saute leftover onion greens and some garlic and canola oil in a medium pot, lightly mash in 3 large (already boiled) potatoes, add 2 Tbsp sour cream and salt + pepper to taste. YUUUUMMMM. Hearty, great with the suggested Shiraz.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken
Wonderful, the flavor is great. I poured a jar of Trader Joe's marinara over the chicken atop whole wheat spaghetti. Very satisfying and authentic tasting. Leftovers were stellar!

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
WOW! Delicious! I made this as cupcakes so the cook time went down to 25 minutes and I cut the confectioner's sugar in half for the frosting (you may have to mix extra depending on how much frosting you want to put on each one - it turns out more like decadent icing)
