About this Cook
Prefer healthy recipes with lower fat and fresh rather than canned or jarred ingredients. Try to avoid MSG, high fructose, and all the gunk in commercial foods. But, I'll try most anything and will definitely take short cuts when cooking for crowds or weeknight meals.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake! Also love making apps and cocktails, esp. sangria, and calling it dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian food and any yummy homemade baked good.
My cooking triumphs
I finally have a nice full list of perfected recipes in every category so entertaining as well as weeknight meals are low stress. Practice makes perfect.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list with 1,000 character limit.

The Real Mojito
Simple sugar tip: make ahead & make extra. Store in glass jar or Tupperware in fridge. Keeps for a week or so. Use in margaritas, iced tea, iced coffee etc. Perfect mojito recipe.

Fresh Mango Salsa
Not bad. Tried it a second time with no tomatoes, added diced cucumber and diced jalapeno pepper, omitted sugar and vinegar, and it was perfect! Third time added black beans - yum! 5 stars with modifications.

Grilled Shrimp Tacos
Came out great! Instead of southwest salad, I made fresh mango salsa (recipe on this site), added some avocado slices, & shredded Mexican blend cheese and served in warm corn tortillas. They were delish! Can't wait to make again.
