Me and my Hubby
My Close-Up
About this Cook
I've been married almost a year, I have an 8 year old son and I am pregnant with my second child. I love experimenting with new recipes and entertaining. I have been cooking since I was about 3 years old (eggs in the microwave and chocolate milk) and have been passionate about it ever since. I think my mom had it pretty easy with me around since I was always making dinner for the family.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have one favorite thing. I just enjoy trying new styles and techniques. I am always trying to put a new twist on everyday recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Playing cards with my grandfather while we waited for the yellow rice and chicken to cook. My dad's chili, I can never make it taste the way he can. And my family always finding an excuse to get together and have a cookout.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I roasted a chicken in the oven and it wasn't dry.
My cooking tragedies
I'll be the first to admit when I made something that doesn't tase good. One time I tried making honey orange chicken in the slow cooker. It spent all day in the slow cooker and when I was finally time to eat we took one bite and spit it out! I had to throw it all out. Turns out I had grabbed Wildflower Honey at the store instead of Clover Honey. Wildflower honey is just not for us!

Surprise Banana Cake
This is a good basic (and easy!) recipe. I started making it and realized I only had Baking Powder, not Baking Soda, so after a quick search on the internet I substituted 2 tsp. baking powder and reduced the salt by half. Still turned out great. It was a little more dense in texture, more like a banana muffin, but still good. My 8 year old loved it!

Corn, Sausage and Pepper Chowder
This is an awesome soup! I took the advice of some other reviewers and used a pablano pepper instead of the bell peppers, and evaporated skim milk instead of the milk/cream. I also ended up adding some season salt at the end becasue it seemed like it was missing something. The soup was a little too thin for my liking so I did a few pulses with my immersion blender and that did the job perfectly. I will definitely be making this again.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast
The sauce for this recipe is awesome. I didn't have a roast so I used pork chops. I doubled the sauce recipe (except the black pepper, only used about 1 Tbsp total). I put about half of the sauce on some pork chops and put them on the grill. Then I mixed about 2 tablespoons of mayo into the remaining sauce. Served the sauce along side some grilled potato wedges I made as well. My husband and son ate every bite and they don't even like honey mustard!
