we've been having such a great time at home revamping our family eating habits. now i'm being honest - i'd let us get so far from where we should be that it has taken serious determination and genuine, consistent communication to begin re-educating our mindset and our palates.i discovered, for… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!

Rotini with Asparagus, Salmon and Cherry Tomatoes
We really enjoyed this one! The lemon is of course perfect with the salmon. Do be careful with cooking times on the gluten-free pasta (we used the Barilla gluten-free rotini); too long or too short a cooking time leaves an unpleasant texture. I discovered I'm not a fresh tarragon fan and next time I'll try this recipe with dill!

Gluten Free Rotini with a Charred Green Onion Pesto, Toasted Cashews and Cranberries
I loved JRbaker's suggestion of adding the grilled chicken, and I'll do that next time we make the recipe. I'm also going to try the pesto on other dishes.

Grilled Masala Chicken with Vegetables
We really enjoyed this dish. The chicken was moist and flavorful, and we created a moroccan-inspired tomato salad to add brightness to the meal. Enjoyed the ease of incorporating the garam masala to create new flavor profiles. And you can't beat the fast clean-up.
