About this Cook
Happily married 15 years and Mom of 3 kids. I teach elementary art and in my spare time toy with cake decorating.
My favorite things to cook
I just love trying new things and finding a new spin on old things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up a Baha'i I fell in love with Persian food...I'm still hoping I can learn how to make some Persian dishes as well as master Persian rice.
My cooking tragedies
I recall when I was about 12 yrs old, My folks were gone and I decided to make fudge with my brother and a friend. Not knowing how to use a candy thermometer as I was pouring the fudge into the glass dish it began to harden into a giant candy kiss shape that...upon trying to taste the fudge we all 3 ended up with our teeth stuck together and a HUGE mess to explain.

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry
This was fantastic! My first shot at a dish like this and was so pleased. My fav Thai restaurant closed that made a similar dish and this hit the spot.(maybe better since I can control the heat!...I don't like too hot) I also used the adds that were mentioned i.e. cayenne pepper, ginger powder, brown sugar, 1 c carrots, 4-5 potatoes cubed (omitted cali..had none), chopped fresh cilantro, and 1/2 lime juice and lime zest. I also browned the chix with the spices removed before slightly undercooked, cut into cubes and returned after all the liquid ingredients had come to a boil. Took to a Naw Ruz celebration and people were going back for 3rds! Thank you VANCITYGIRL!
