About this Cook
I have just started to dabble in cooking during the last 5 years or so. It is somewhat a daunting task, considering I am married to a CIA graduate specializing in classic french style and has extensive fine food and wine restaurant experience. (But what a great resourse!)
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite toy is the slow cooker. But, right now, I like to try everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from Texas, we always had nachos on Sunday night. We ate a great deal of Tex-Mex and that is my favorite type of food. Right now, I am creating my own traditions for my family.
My cooking triumphs
Still looking for that.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking for my husband (trying to impress him by knowing his background) and not realizing I am supposed to wash pinenuts before cooking with them. He was picking the grit out of his teeth after sampling my spinach.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
Absolutely delicious. The Parmesan cheese and lemon gives the light fish an almost decadent quality. None left on our plates!

Tortellini Soup I
I made this soup last night and to say we were licking our bowls would be an understatement! I included garlic bread and the duo created a full meal. The soup is very savory and filling. Most of the flavor comes from the italian sausage so make sure you get the best possible. Definitely making again this winter/fall season!

BBQ Country Style Ribs
The lemon was such an interesting flavor. It delivered a bite just before introducing the BBQ sauce flavor. They could have been a bit more tender. Although, the texture was not bad. . . .about like steak. Would make again and cook longer!
