About this Cook
While growing up, I lived most of my life overseas. My dad insisted that we try all the local dishes. This has carried over into my adult life. My greatest thrill is to cook along side someone who is from another country. Here I learn how it is REALLY done, not what a restaurant does.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy anything extreme - spicy, sweet, sour, it's all good. My favorite is Mexican Food, Persian, Thai, and good ol' Southern
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is from Alabama and family reunions are the rage. We usually have around 150 close relatives show up-"Potluck" funny thing is every year every person brings the same thing they did the year before. We all have our family favorites. We all ask one another to bring it. Imagine how surprised we would be to find out that Aunt Mary makes something else besides Red Velvet Cake?
My cooking triumphs
Helping my Iranian friend cook dinner for a wedding. Everything was so interesting and yummy!
My cooking tragedies
Making hungarian goolash with tofu instead of meat for a vegetarian friend. ICK!

Cajun Chicken Pasta
mmmmmmm! The best. If it isn't hot enough, throw in some more cayenne. I used half and half instead of cream and cut back the amount by a quarter. Still, it's wonderful!

Lemon Bundt Cake
Loved it! Added poppy seeds to Lemon-Lime soda and let set for a couple of hours before I put it together. Took the advise of others and used apple sauce and egg substitute to "healthy" it up a little. Will make again and again and again and ............
