About this Cook
Work at home mom. I have two children, son-3 and daughter-2. I like to cook only when I'm in the mood because I find it hard to come up the new meals my husband likes, because he's a vegetarian and I'm not( almost not quite). So I do a lot of casseroles to get a mix of veggies for the kids and that's also tasty.
My favorite things to cook
enchiladas, casserole, cookies, cakes and cupcakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies for the holidays, my mom use to always make cookies and I knew it's something I wanted to share with my kids.
My cooking tragedies
Oh there are too many to count. Let's just say it's a disappointment when a picture looks so good and the food smells good cooking but when your actually eating it your taste buds have been sadly let down.

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs
This is just as tasty as when my mom made it for me as child (but she lost her recipe). I subsituted the meatballs with Nate's Zesty Italian Vegetarian meatballs and it was still just as delious! Thanks, my husband and 4 year old love it too.

Filipino Lumpia
OMG! These are so delicious!!!, My mom use to make this when I was a kid and as it was cooking it smelt just like hers. The only thing I changed was the meat I used morningstar veggie crumblers. I made homemade sweet and sour sauce which was 1 tbsp corn starch mixed with enough water to make it slightly runny (set a side) then in a pot mixed 1/4c light brown sugar, 1/4c apple cider vinegar & 1/4 c water stirred the mixure in the pot and brought it to a boil and then added the corn starch mixture stirring til it was well mixed and began to thicken. The sauce was enough for about 9 lumpia but if you need more you have to use equal parts for the the ingredients like 1/2 c vinegar, 1/2 c water, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 2 tbsp corn starch. Oh yeah I also added a little ketchup to give it a redish color. Anywho my husband thought it was the Indian chutney from the store. And he gave me a thumbs up on the lumpia so I will consider it as a meal on our list. YEA!

Aloo Matar
This was wonderful. I followed the directions but also took in what others said about it being bland so I threw in some curry and cumin, microwaved 2 potatoes (4 would of been to much, but I was only making it for 2 and it was still to much) for 2.5 min which I think really helped, I couldn't of seen them being cooked the way it was written without adding more time. I also added more cilantro because I love it and just enough water in the end to make a smooth texture rather than sticky or clumpy.
