About this Cook
Cooking is a great passion in my life. It has always interested me but I never had the time or resources to make it a hobby. I have recently moved into a house with a huge kitchen which is giving me all the space I need to tackle any recipe! Another aspect of cooking that I love is making delicious, healthy food for my family. I am recently married and I love knowing I will be able to create wonderful meals with my husband!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything! I really enjoy trying something I never thought I would be able to cook: a challenging recipe, using a cooking technique that is new, ethnic foods, etc...
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I think of my family and cooking two things come to mind. First, my mother, sister and me making Christmas cookies. We would make so many different kinds. Then we would fill cookie tins to the top and bring them over to our friends. It really helped make Christmas special. The second thing I think of is something my sister used to do. When she got into her mid teens she started making birthday cakes for everyone in my family on their birthday. She would pick very elaborate cakes and always seemed to pull them off! Now when birthdays come around everyone asks her what kind of cake she is going to make!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
This was amazing! It was my first time preparing lamb and it did not disappoint. I didn't make any changes. The lamb was so flavorful and the balsamic reduction is the best I have ever had! I will definitely make this again.

English Trifle to Die For
This is so good! The homemade custard is so much better than instant pudding. I used in season berries and this can definitely be delicious with any combo you want. I made it for my work and I everyone wanted the recipe and for me to make it again right away!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia
I made this for my fiance and we both thought this was amazing! Neither one of us is a big fish lover, but the fish turned out so tasty. I omitted the parsley and used fresh dill instead which added a nice bit of flavor. I agree with previous posters about the cook time. I cooked it for 25 mins at 375 and the fatter side of the fillet was very juicy but the thin side was dry. Next time I will cut the cook time down.
