About this Cook
I'm a 28y/o stay-home mommy of 2 & college student and I love to cook! I love to try new recipes and experiment on making my own dishes. I also love to read, watch movies, dine out, and just being with my family.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are mainly pasta dishes, asian dishes that I picked up in Guam & Taiwan, and poultry/seafood. I like to keep it simple as possible w/o sacrificing taste (i.e. buying pre-cut vegetables) and to save time. Now & then I like to try gourmet dishes or something more complicated or extravagant. I enjoy the satisfaction of cooking something that people really like and want more of. I love making chicken dishes as well & always looking for new or different ways to make chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up I loved to watch and help my mom cook and bake. Now I ask for family recipes to make for my own family or people I know would love them as much as I did. I also like to think up combinations of ingredients to experiment with until I come up with something yummy!
My cooking triumphs
I found a seafood chowder recipe on here that I tweaked a bit and it came out fantastic! I made a huge pot that I intended to share with a couple of friends when they came over but my husband (who is not a big fan of cream based soups/sauces), and my kids devoured it pretty quick. It was my 1st time making a chowder and was quite proud it turned out so well. I also learned to make sushi and after making it for my friends, we would have sushi parties where I would teach them and we all make our own, along with asian cucumber salad.
My cooking tragedies
I recently tried making lo mein and I thought it was terrible! Turned out I used the wrong kind of noodles!! They were the mushiest noodles ever! Now when it comes to making noodle dishes like that, i'll stick to spaghetti noodles!!

Crispy Herb Baked Chicken
I have been using a recipe pretty similar to this, except, I use Betty Crockers Roasted Garlic instant mashed potatoes, coat the chicken, melt and drizzle the butter over the chicken. It's already flavored and the butter over the pieces help from it sticking to the foil or the pan. My family loves it and so do the friends i've told about this recipe!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert
I had never had this dessert until my stepmother made it for me a few yrs ago, I just made it for a class presentation and everyone loved it. The only difference is she uses french vanilla pudding mix and adds a little milk to the canned frosting to make it creamier and spreadable. I also crushed some of the graham crackers and sprinkled it on top of the frosting before serving it, may try some crushed walnuts on top next time!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker
I found this recipe early this morning and its cooking right now. It smells great and the chops are already tender after cooking almost 2 hrs! I had to adjust a little bit tho. I didn't have ginger or honey but I did use pancake syrup. I also added a handful of chopped onions & a splash of apple cider vinegar to the sauce. I did rub some season all to the chops and lightly coated them with seasoned flour to help thicken the sauce during cooking. Instead of a slowcooker, I put them in my dutch oven and cooked them on the stove on high heat to boil, then down to simmer a while. My husband and I sampled a taste and it tastes great! It's hard to get him to say something tastes 'good' and was surprised with his approval! Thanks for this recipe!!
