About this Cook
I'm a health-conscious "flexitarian" with an interest in baking and a terrible weakness for cupcakes. I try to eat as clean as possible, and avoid red meat and dairy whenever I can.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking. Probably because I love eating baked goods. I've also become a fan of my slow cooker. I'm a busy gal, but I still want to make tasty home-cooked meals - the slow cooker is my ally.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every New Year's Eve we have a fondue! It's a 10 year tradition, still going strong.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever someone comments that the dish I made was delicious, or when someone asks me for my recipe, I consider it a triumph. I also consider it a triumph when I cook an amazing meat dish, like prime rib. I am not a fan of red meat, so when I cook "blind" and it gets rave reviews, I pat myself on the back.
My cooking tragedies
I have yet to master the broiler on my oven. Everything I have broiled thus far has filled the kitchen with a smokey smell and left me frustrated ... oh well, I'll get there eventually.

Szechwan Shrimp
Love it! We make this a few times per month, so easy and yummy! I double the sauce (and the garlic/onion, too) and serve it over rice. Mmmmm.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin
This was the first pork tenderloin I have ever made and it turned out perfect! I only used 1.5 T of chipotle chili powder because mine seems to be on the spicier side. 20 minutes on the grill was the perfect amount of time. It was a big hit!

Quiche Lorraine I
Whenever I make a quiche, I buy frozen pie shells and double the recipe so I can make two at once. With this recipe, I noticed that I only needed 1 cup of cream per quiche, I think you would end up with a soupy quiche if you used 2 cups of cream for a single quiche! Anyways, I've made a lot of quiches in my lifetime, and this was one of the best!
