About this Cook
Hello! I'm an artist, wife and mother. I love cooking, painting, drawing,talking, sewing, playing with my baby, eating weird food,watching movies with my husband, reading,friends, whales, bugs,chocolate, writing, helping others, nice people, and animals... I hate traffic, cars,rude people, parking lots that trap you, cigarettes, and most of all crappy food
My favorite things to cook
Everything! But I really like slow cooking and never know what your going to get!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Saturday BBQ, Sunday pasta, and my own 15 year tradition of a spoon of peanut butter in the oatmeal for breakfast...yum!
My cooking triumphs
I made some bomb Ethiopian beef the other day
My cooking tragedies
Paella recipe...I used the wrong rice, I used regular instead of risotto, and the rice absorbed all the juice. The whole dish became one giant seafood flavored starch ball! Ouch!

Mini Cheesecakes
I don't know... I wasn't that impressed with the cake flavor. I wish it had been sweeter.

Spinach Quiche
Delish! I made mine with chopped Kale, garlic, and red peppers. I left out the croutons for a carb free version.
