About this Cook
My name is Illy and I LOVE food! I really started cooking a lot when I was in college because lets face it, cafeteria food is very bland and unhealthy and I love to spice it up a little while keeping myself healthy. I love cooking with fresh vegetables and meats! Im not a huge fan of the frozen section or canned goods, unless it's corn, mushrooms and kidney beans! I'm a 3rd culture kid, so in other words, I don't just cook one type of food but several different kinds! And I love it!
My favorite things to cook
Stir fry, Pot Roast, Pasta, Tacos, Salsa Tagines Salads
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love my Grandma Dorans dumplings and Grandma Coats apple pie. I think recipes that are passed down from generation to generation have a lot of meaning and taste better and better :)
My cooking triumphs
I think I would say the Moroccan recipes that I made from scratch and added my own touch too. I got a lot of compliments and requests
My cooking tragedies
As of now, I don't really have any cooking tragedies, but I'm sure something will come up!

Sara's Pumpkin Pie
This tastes exactly like my Mom's Pumpkin Pie! It's fairly simple and I usually always have the ingredients on hand so if I get in the mood for some Pumpkin Pie I just toss all the ingredients in the blender and voila! An hour later, I have a delicious pie! This is definitely the Pumpkin Pie Recipe to beat! Thanks Marlene!

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.
