About this Cook
I have a 3 month old son and a very hungry husband who is in the USAF. I work during the day and my husband works in the evening so my son never has to be sent to a sitter. I love to cook and cooking is one way I show my family how much I care. I always think of what will be our next meal and very open minded with what to make.
My favorite things to cook
I love making sweet desserts! I am trying to do the baking thing and it's coming along slowly. I hope to make masterpieces one day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love just having dinner with my family. We always make a feast with every meal we have together and it's always delicious.
My cooking tragedies
I made chocolate chip cookies with 2 cups of MSG instead of 2 cups of sugar! They came out looking so delicious, but they tasted so horrible!

One Bowl Brownies
This is the best! It's so easy and I love that I don't have to messy up any other dishes. All I had was cocoa powder so I used that instead. It turned out so chocolaty, soft and chewy. Oh, and the only kind of flour I had was self rising flower. I don't think it raised at all actually...strange.

Caramelized Baked Chicken
I make this all the time. I add a little more spices to kick it up a notch or two. I like to add 2 tsp of finely mince ginger and 2 tsp of finely minced lemon grass together. Instead of 1/2 cup of soy sauce I would use 1/4 cup and 1/4 cup of hoison sauce. It makes this a more southeast Asian dish with the garlic, ginger and lemon grass. I also chop up scallions and top it on the dish with some roughly ground black peppers. Makes it look really attractive and adds some extra taste to it.You can find more fresh and affordable lemongrass at any asian supermarket. You can find Hoison and ginger pretty much any where now.
