About this Cook
Super busy wife and working mom of 2 fantastic kids. I run, I race, I eat. I'd like to find a way to eat better!
My favorite things to cook
I'll let you know.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Creamed spinach. My German great-grandmother made the best creamed spinach and I'm the fourth generation to make it.
My cooking triumphs
Making my great-grandmother's stuffing recipe and having my dad say "Was this her recipe? It's BETTER." I teared up.
My cooking tragedies
My pecan pie that just wouldn't set and a pumpkin-banana tart that was in a word, nasty.

Thai Green Curry Chicken
This was very easy, but really lacked the kick you expect from Thai food. I will use a different curry paste next time, cut the sugar by at least half (possibly more), and add some bamboo, carrots and zucchini, and will likely use thighs instead of breasts (or possibly use both, but slice the breast MUCH thinner). Otherwise, this was very tasty and I will definitely make again.

Beef Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce
I'm with everyone else -there was too much vinegar and I will reduce it next time. I also used coconut oil (didn't have peanut) and zucchini instead of bell pepper. It was still very good despite too much vinegar, and I will make it again.

Coconut Chicken Stir Fry
Unbelievably good! My daughter and I couldn't get enough! I swapped fennel seeds for cumin seeds and coconut oil for vegetable oil. Served it with basmati rice and it was DELISH.
