About this Cook
Currently live in Las Vegas with my hubby! He is Pakistani, and we attempt to make dishes his mother made for the family there...with some success. Really love to try new dishes all the time, and frequently test my skills in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Indian food...anything involving mass quantities of sugar...great seafood dishes, and of course those comfy foods grandma made when I was a kid!
My favorite family cooking traditions
BAKING! Breads, cakes, cookies, pies, and anything my grandma handed down to me...
My cooking triumphs
Kentucky Butter Cake, Homemade Bread, and Nann Bread
My cooking tragedies
Mostly anything involving substitutions of low-fat/no fat/no sugar ingredients...

Refried Beans Without the Refry
SUPER BEANS! I usually hate making beans into anything, but this is so simple and really a great and healthy result. I still can't believe there is no oil or fat, because they end up with such great taste. I was reading the other reviews for adding tons of cheese, but they are PERFECT on their own. Thanks for sharing!

Mardi Gras King Cake
Delicious cake/bread and yields sooo much more than 16 servings. I turned the halves into one cake by baking it on a round baking stone. Made a butter cream icing...would not advise it but the colors turned out wonderfully this way. Used an old ring instead of a baby doll and hopefully no one will eat it! Great instructions, thanks again!

WONDERFUL GUACAMOLE! I happened to notice the 5 star reviews and decided to try this recipe and I am wowed! This was also my first guacamole experience, and I am so pleased with the results! My brother makes a fabulous guacamole himself, and now I have something to compete with!
