About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I honestly just really enjoy cooking. It makes me feel good when people like something I create.
My cooking triumphs
I'm fairly new to cooking so any recipe that turns out good is a triumph. I have found some recipes that have been so good that I called my mom to share them with her.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried a recipe that called for 2 tablespoons of asian chili sauce, which I didn't have, so I substituted 2 table spoons of cruched red pepper. Needless to say it was not the say thing and the meal tasted like fire!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup
I thought this was pretty good and the hubby loved it. I ended up making this on the stove. I liked how the vegetables stayed just a little crunchy to balance out the tenderness of the lintels.

Hot Corn Dip
I made this for a cook out we had at my new job,no pressure to make something delicious right? This turned out great! I did add some taco seasoning for extra flavor. Personally, I think it could have used a little heat,but I didn't want to set my new co-worker's mouths on fire.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
I am not a fish lover at all, but I made this tonight to placate my husbands love of seafood. I doubled the sauce,except for the honey(4T instead) because I was afraid it would be too sweet. I also baked instead of pan frying the fish. I set the oven to 365 and cooked the fish for ten minutes. I felt like it wasn't cooking fast enough so I turned up the heat to 400 and cooked for another 8 minutes. It came out flakey and tender.I tried to thicken the sauce, which I removed before baking the fish, with corn starch but it never quite thickened the way I thought it would, but it was still very delicious. I served it with broccoli and rice. I felt the sauce had a strong enough flavor to hide the fishiness of the mahi mahi, which was a HUGE plus for me.
