Me at my birthday party!
About this Cook
I am the mother of a soon to be 6 year old little boy! I also have a wonderful dog (pit bull) who is just as sweet at cherry pie... I am Armenian and very proud! I work in hearing instrument science as an instrument specialist, testing hearing and prescribing hearing devices.
My favorite things to cook
Fun, throw together kind of meals, love to bake and find healthy yummy foods that will make my son proud to call me his momma!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of chicken, pork, and lamb... Lots of shish kabobs/grilling as well as dolmas with the grape leaves. Oh yea... :)
My cooking triumphs
STOP EATING THE FOOD WHILE I'M COOKING!!!!!!! And panicing when there are too many directions
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt to cook when I was maybe 16 was a frozen pizza that I actually caught on fire in the oven... I didn't know you were suppose to take the cardboard out from under the pizza prior to cooking..... oops....

Fantastic Black Bean Chili
This was pretty good! I added corn and 1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp of crushed red peppers! Nice :) Used 1 large can of crushed tomatos and only 1 can of black beans
