About this Cook
I work full time but love to work in my home, too. I wish there were more hours in the day because there are so many wonderful outdoor activities to do here in beautiful Colorado (we have over 300 sunny day each year).
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake which is a challenge here in Colorado's high altitude. Baking recipies don't rise as well as they do closer to sea-level so most recipies must be altered unless they were created at a higher elevation.

Chinese Spicy Hot And Sour Soup
I realize that one "hot & sour soup" recipe can taste very different from the next. I agree that this is similar to PF Chang's. I found a "forest Blend" dried mushroom pack in the produce section of my suoermarket which contained woodear mushroom in addition to shitake, oyster & porcini mushrooms. I also skipped the tiger lily buds like a lot of other people. And I decided to use beef stock instead of chicken because I'm used to seeing the soup a brown color. It turned out really nice!

Kelly's Chili
I wanted to try something diferent for our annual chili party. This recipe was perfect. It was different enough but still "chili" enough. I did add a 15oz can of tomato sauce because it looked a bit dry; I was concerned to potatoes might not cook fully. The spice was just right! If I cut the chili powder, I think my 2 tear old would love it.
