About this Cook
I'm a 28 year old mother of 1. My daughter is 5 years old and has recently been exploring assisting mommy in the kitchen. I'm currently in the process of completing my Bachelor's Degree in Business and work a full time job at a computer consultant company.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything Italian, Asian, or anything I can bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried empanadas!! My grandma, mom, and I use to cook these when I was growing up. This was used as our girl time. We would spend HOURS making dozens of these. Most of my earliest childhood cooking memories were of these.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Wellington!!! A dish that I just HAD to try after my favorite cooking show, Hell's Kitchen with Chef Ramsey. It has taken numerous attempts but I believe I finally have one worthy of Chef Ramsey.
My cooking tragedies
My attempt at slow cooker chicken and dumplings. I never got the dumplings to cook. I ended up having to move them to a pan on the stove.

Molly's Mouthwatering Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce
OH NO! I rated it with a 1, not the 5 I intended. Here is my correct rating. Oh my lord this was FANTASTIC! I had to force myself to stop eating it before I served dinner so that we had enough for dinner! I read through the reviews and really didn't change that much. I strained my cucumber through a paper towel, I added garlic powder not raw garlic, I used the mayo (but really didn't need to), I also added a generous helping of dried dill (I love this stuff), and an extra splash of lemon juice. My husband, who doesn't care for cucumbers at all..gobbled this up. I'm ready to make more and use it in a chicken wrap now! Thanks for sharing such a fantastic recipe! Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe.

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp
OMG -- if I could give this 10 stars I would. This is the first recipe where the bf said, "did you write that down?" I have tried numerous recipes off of this site. I read the reviews, I make changes, and then I put them in front of the bf for his review. This recipe could not be ANY more perfect. We definitely used panko bread crumbs (I think this is the key) and the only thing that I did that was "extra" was sprinkle the shrimp with Old Bay as well as the other spices. My hats off to this WONDERFUL recipe. We made it 2 times in 1 week! Not healthy, but wonderful!

Sausage Mushroom Quiche
This was my first time to make a quiche. This recipe is AMAZING!! I followed some others suggestions. I pre-baked my pie crust for 10 minutes, I added a half a cup of cheese to the bottom of the pie shell, I added one additional egg, and I used swiss cheese. I was able to get all of the mixture into a deep dish pie crust...barely. My boyfriend and I ate this for dinner (I put some hot sauce on mine before eating) -- he even went back for seconds. Thanks for the awesome recipe.
