About this Cook
I am a stay at home wife & mother. Love cooking for and with my husband. I am an avid runner, love the outdoors, and love God above all.
My favorite things to cook
My husband and I love cooking healthy, gourmet meals. We love to take regular recipes and convert them to low fat and nourishing masterpeices. I especially enjoy making desserts and preparing ethnic food. We probably eat asian, italian and mexican once a week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family traditions are holiday meals and baking. My mom also taught me many great recipes that I love.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph to date would be getting my husband to love and appreciate vegetables. :)
My cooking tragedies
The worse tragedy so far has been a thai stir fry gone awry!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze
First time ever making Filet Mignon at was a total success, and it was the Hubby's birthday so it needed to be perfect! He loved it, so glad I found this recipe, definitely a keeper!

Apple Crisp
I cooked this for my husband. When he got home I put it back in the oven on low heat to warm it up...asked him to take it out 20 minutes later, which he forgot and it sat in the oven for about 40 minutes. I was terrified that it would be ruined, but to my delight, it turned out absolutely delicious even overcooked. I made a couple small variations in the pecans just walnuts, added about 1/2 cup of craisins and served with vanilla ice cream. DELISH!
