A cake I made
About this Cook
I love to cook. I'm not great at it but nothing makes me happier than someone coming to my apartment and commented on how good the smell is. I really enjoy cooking for others and I try to keep things healthy.
My favorite things to cook
I love the crock pot! I love using healthy meat alternatives like bison, ground turkey, pork, turkey bacon, etc. I love lemony flavors, and fish.
My cooking triumphs
I don't think I have many triumphs just yet, but I'll keep ya posted. Just making food that tastes good might be one though :)
My cooking tragedies
I've made some hilarious mistakes in the kitchen over the years though, like the time I tried to make egg drop soup, my egg ended up looking like blown up pieces of chicken, and the broth tasted like water. I also made the mistake of putting oil in pan, put the cover on, and put it on high. The smoke that came out of that pan once the lid came off burned my eyes for hours. I guess that could have been worse though!

Mexican Bean Salad
I just made this. Yes the dressing has a lot of ingredients but it is sooo delicious. I used an extra can of beans and the salad to dressing ratio seems just fine still. This is so much better than the boring bean salad I've been making for years and its really the dressing that does it.

Spinach and Orzo Salad
I have made this so many times over the year that I had to change it from 4 to 5 stars :) Great dish!
