About this Cook
I come from a family of Hamburger Helper and instant mashed potatoes. However, my adult life is so much different, to the point of being called a "freak" at work for my health-conscious food. I met the man of my dreams 9 years ago (while living in Germany), and we are still dreaming together. We are foster/adoptive parents (our home is currently without because they got married). I am super anal about recycling, which is not done well here. I can't stand waste of any kind: food, time, money, natural resources, brains, etc. I love traveling and usually go to different countries in the summer without my hubby.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy, feel-good meals, veggies, breads, and muffins. More organic, less instant. I like variety and all foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eating and talking at a table together: one time, one place, if at all possible.
My cooking triumphs
Muffins and breads. Recently - homemade spaghetti sauce.
My cooking tragedies
I CANNOT consistently put meat in a pan and make it come out right. Too dry, too tough, too much time, not enough time. Even after all the tricks about the pan being the right temperature and everything. Maybe if I cook the exact same cut of meat ALL THE TIME...

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken
It was very easy to make. I may leave out the raisins next time for the people who aren't raisin lovers. Thanks for the recipe! :o)

Curry Pineapple Fried Rice
We loved this! I didn't stir fry it because we were in a hurry, so I just scooped everything over the steamed rice. Thanks for the recipe! :o)

Cucumber-Mango Salsa
Yummy! I made this for a child's birthday party, so I used a pablano pepper instead. I will make this again! :o) Thanks for the recipe!
