About this Cook
I have one picky son(age three) and one picky man(even more picky than my son) and then me... who loves anything and everything... (aside from liver) Soooo now it has become my job to create meals that satisfy my desire for FLAVOR and still appeal to my picky eaters.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that isn't from a box.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Singing in the kitchen is a must! Everything tastes so much better when the cooks are singing. HAHA My sister and I like to sing Opera while cooking.
My cooking triumphs
If I taste something I like at a resturant I can go home and create a replica that tastes identical to the original.
My cooking tragedies
Made a wonderful vegi lasagna for a potluck and while pulling it out of the oven at the place in front of everyone my butter fingers fumbled it face down onto the door of the oven. *sigh* everyone said it smelt so wonderful that they scooped it off the door of the oven and threw it back in the dish and ate every last bite... so it was a tragedy turned triumph.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
I LOVE this cake. My Brazilian friend made this cake for me and it was like eating a piece of heaven. I made it for my friends birthday and she and everyone there loved it. The recipe has been passed on and on each time a friend makes it they come back to me and tell me that it was a real hit. The only thing I did differently was added a little baking soda. The cake came out fluffy. It soaked up all the milks wonderfully. I sprinkled cinnamon on top like it shows in the main picture. Thanks Stephanie for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Green Beans With Orange Olive Oil
sorry I should have stated I don't use all the olive oil at one recipe. I make the orange olive oil to use again. It is just easier to infuse the olive oil when there it a bit more oil than about one table spoon. So after you infuse the olive oil I would only pour about 1 table spoon on top. Save the rest for another time.
