About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking things that are a bit of a challenge but not horribly complicated. And of course, I like when what I cook tasted really good. I generally try to cook as healthy as I can, with the occasional splurge. Always trying to incorporate more healthy vegetarian into our diet.
My cooking tragedies
When I started to experiment with cooking my poor dog wouldn't even eat many of my failures. Since then the failures have become few and far between thankfully.

West African Peanut Stew
Loved this! Ate it over rice. Added some other veggies - carrots, beans and celery. Didn't have collard greens so used turnip greens. Will definitely make again, but will leave out the chicken since we are trying to eat more vegetarian and the chicken really didn't add much - the peanut butter is the protein source.

Hummus III
Delicious. We used dry peas that we had soaked/boiled. They were dry even after preparing them so we had to add a bit of water since it was much too dry (canned chickpeas would have a much higher water content than our reconstituted dried had).

Keema Aloo (Ground Beef and Potatoes)
This was only okay. I did forget to put the peas in at the end so they may have added something obviously. The flavour was good, it just didn't jump out at me. I added some cheap hot sauce on my plate and that improved it.
