About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
anything with spices and herbs... I love aromatic blends of flavors. Thai and Vietnamese are some of my favorites to cook with because of the fragrant ingredients of ginger, lemongrass, curries, coconut milk, Thai chilis, etc. Indian is something I am still learning and love! Some of my favorite spices are cardamom, cinnamon, turmeric, and cayenne pepper which are all utilized in such cooking. Anything with a unique or intriguing flavor gets me going!

Honey Cornbread
I used buttermilk instead of heavy cream. YUM! I think it works well with how sweet the bread is. I also used gluten free all-purpose flour and erythritol sweetener in place of the sugar. Worked perfectly for those with allergies or special needs. I served these with the Colorado Buffalo Chili from this site. Awesome! Top a piece with some grated Cheddar cheese and pop it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Oh man! That alone is heavenly!

Sunday Morning Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes
I loved the lemon taste in these! In fact, when I doubled this recipe for a bigger group, there wasn't enough lemon taste. I sprinkled some extra lemon zest right onto each individual cooking pancake before flipping over. Yum. May I also recommend the accompaniment of homemade blueberry sauce? The combo of lemon and blueberry is irresistible! I had to make mine gluten-free due to my allergy so I used Bob's Red Mill GF all-purpose flour - it works fine. I also substituted a healthier sugar substitute (erythritol). My pancakes were almost more like crepes. Very VERY good like that though

Dijon Garlic Salmon
That mustard and tarragon combo is heavenly! Definitely the right spice for this! I added 1 Tbsp of honey to the Dijon to provide more balance to the harshness of this kind of mustard. Delicious! Not too sweet. I chopped my garlic and placed it on top of the fish like a crust. Worked out great. My onions turned out perfect. I think the key is slicing them paper thin. I also sprinkled the whole thing with olive oil before popping it in the oven. I think that helped cook the onions better. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
