About this Cook
Love love love to cook. I never follow recipes step by step. I do my own thing. This year i am trying to take all my old favorites & make them healthy!!!! wish me luck!! To me allrecipes is like my brian storm jump off, i come here to find out what i want to make, get some ideas & then add my 2 cents.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking all the things i ate as a kid. Old shcool mexican food enchiladas with tons of cheese, hard shell tacos, mexican rice etc...Italian food is a tad simialr and i love making pasta!!! Recently i have fallen in love with asian food & tofu. In the spirit of eating healthy i have adopted a lot of asian recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In the mexican fam tradition i adopted the use of way too much cheese, sour cream salt & tortillas!!!! All these things make for a very filling meal :(
My cooking triumphs
Using a lot more veggies, lean meats, less fat basically. Trying to make lower calorie meals. As the cook in the fam i have to make sure i keep everyone healthy :) I figure i cant make them workout so the best i can do is make them a healthy meal!!
My cooking tragedies
Im very lucky i have not had too many tragedies. Im pretty good at cooking. I always do my homework before i do anything. It might take sometime but it help from messing anything up.I love watching Good Eats, he really breakes everything down so you know what your doing & why your doing it. I did burn some spare ribs on the bbq once & made some cornish hens that were raw when they hit the table( i stuck them back in the oven) not biggie. what can i say im good :)

Chicken and Lentils
Great recipe for non lentil lovers. Put all ingrediance in a crockpot for 6 hours on low. My tweeks: no carrots,petit diced tomatoes 1/2 can and added turmeric and red pepper flake. In the crock pot I added things in this order. 1st layer lentils,onions,tomatoe seasoning and water. Then added skinless chciken thighs season them again and added a few more onion. I adjusted the salt while cooking. Family liked it and they're not lentil fans.

Swimming Angels
Made this for dinner. Took the advise of most and cut down on the peanut butter, because of this adjustment I had to add cornstarch to thicken up the sauce. I followed the tofu and spinach directions but next time I may take the suggestion to bake it. I would of liked a firm texture. Over all I thought this was a great dish to make when u need to mix up the usual weekday dinner schedule. I will say it is a tasty dish !!!

Creamy Hollandaise Sauce
Too much lemon. This recipe called for 3 tablespoons of lemon......use one or two unless u really like your sauce tart. Otherwise the recipe was great and I will never buy store bought hollandaise again. I gave this 4 stars because its a great starter recipe.
