About this Cook
I am an ExPat living in a new country trying to cook the things I loved from home. The fun is finding new recipes, new ingredients, and sometimes overhauling the whole meal into something special!
My favorite things to cook
I love love love love chicken!
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my home growing up there were 4 girls not counting my mom. We all had to cook at one time or another. I spent most of my time sitting around the table prepping food. Then talking the ear off my mom watching and learning. I still enjoy prepping food and organizing the ingredients. In my world, my life, and my home the kitchen is the heart of the family.
My cooking triumphs
I prepared my first Thanksgiving dinner for 14 adults Nov. 2008. My first Thanskgiving in Belgium and I was determined to do it just like we do back home. I sure did and got rave reviews.
My cooking tragedies
Falling asleep while trying to make stoofvles (Flemish Beef Stew). WOW the meat was supposed to cook for a while and I thought I can do this. Sat on the couch, and fell asleep. Next thing I knew it my lovely husband was waking me to say something was burning lololol. Needless to say the family ate fries for dinner no stoofvles.

Penne a la Vodka II
My husband loves Penne a la vodka since we left America he can't find it. This recipe was a perfect substitute and I will make it again for him and guests alike!!!!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
