About this Cook
Been married for 12 years, and still can't cook rice without burning it! Have three awesome boys and an amazing husband. They really put up with my poor cooking ability. I hope to learn some skills on this site, and maybe some things will come out right :) I'm the type of person that must follow the recipe to a "T", or else chances are it will be completely inedible. Problem is that if the recipe is "off" or bad, then my dish will certainly be disastrous. I don't have the common sense to know if the food taste/texture will be different if the heat is too high or too low, and measuring cups are vital for me (no "eye-balling" here!).
My favorite things to cook
Green pea soup, Taco Salad, grilled-chicken salad, Indian Butter Chicken (just learned), Chicken Paprika (got from this site!), some cakes and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
"Blaleed" for breakfast during Eid (an Emirati dish) :) Will try to post my recipe soon!
My cooking triumphs
I can't remember because usually things come out very bad...I prefer not to cook for people! My poor kids and husband are used to me already :( although there are a few things that I can make ok.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my cooking is a tragedy! Sometimes I make things great, and when my husband asks me to do it again, it comes out horrible!

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon
I personally don't like salmon but bought a small fillet for my husband as a trial since I never made it before. I kept it in the oven a bit longer then stated, so it was a nice golden color with some crispiness. My husband went crazy over it, and so did my kids! Then they convinced me to try it, and I loved it, too! We were all upset that I only bought a small fillet, so today I am making it again, but this time enough for the whole family. This recipe was delish! It did not have that strong fishy salmon flavor, and as the other commenter wrote, the dijon compliments the salmon perfectly. Thanks, CHRISTYJ, for the awesome recipe! :)

Basil Chicken and Pasta
Loved this!! Very "restaurant-styled" IMO :) Husband says its a keeper. I did double the sauce. Didn't have basil on hand, so added some frozen broccoli to pan a little after sautéing the chicken & onions. AMAZING! Used whole-wheat fusilli, too..YUM! Thanks, Stacey, for sharing!! :)

Ghirardelli(R) Magic Cookie Bars
Delicious! Made half the batch with coconut, and the other half without. Mine was a bit soggy, so I guess I needed to keep it in the oven longer for the milk to harden some, but it still was AWESOME! A keeper!
