About this Cook
Here`s what I have been cooking.. http://www.digitaljournal.com/group/146 Just before I moved out on my own, I started to express an interest in cooking mainly because I wanted to eat healthier and stop eating prepackaged meals. My mom always made home-cooked meals and never used prepackaged anything. I thank her so much for bringing me up on good well balance meals and therefore inspiring me to do it for myself, and one day my family. I just started my 30's and living with my boyfriend and my cooking has developed to a pretty good skill level. I keep learning new things, trying new things and just enjoy food in every possible way, from cooking it, to eating it, to watching others cook. I love the Food Network and this site for inspiring me in the kitchen. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love trying anything new. I love ethnic dishes and I also enjoy swapping fatty ingredients for healthier ones without sacrificing the taste. I also like tricking my guests with healthier recipes. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking for an army regardless of whether you're actually cooking for 3, 4 or 5 people - Having no room on the table (bread, side carb dish, main meat dish, veggie dish and a salad)and just being a loud Portuguese family around the dinner table. It's not a well mannered table but a very happy and satisfied one. :)
My cooking triumphs
Hosting my first turkey dinner and man-handling that massive beast of a bird. :) AND making home-made sushi that tasted AMAZING.
My cooking tragedies
Surprisingly I am still without a tragic event in the kitchen other than breaking glass, spilling flour...burning my fingers....etc...etc.

Paleo Coconut Curry Stir Fry
I realized I never reviewed this but that's my picture currently on the main page! This was so good and so easy to make. It was dinner for one and just what I needed. I only changed the avocado oil for coconut oil since I had that on hand it would pair nicely. Oh and I likely added more sriracha because I love spicy food. Great recipe!!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing
So good! I cut back on the oil in the marinade because wherever I can cut oil I will cut oil. Also, whenever I attempt to grill fish it usually falls apart so I pan fried. Very tasty and spicy!

Muffin Tin Potatoes Gratin
I added sharp cheddar and layered it. Oh my it was to die for. The sharp cheddar is a must in my opinion which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The parm on its own wouldn't give it the melt factor. However, a cute idea that has room for so much variation based on your cheese of choice.
