About this Cook
I was Princess Leia for Halloween one year and thought the image fit here. I want to discover and share delicious heathy, low fat recipes. As a big believer in organic foods, I think we as consumers can save the world by only buying pesticide free products produced by true farmers.
My favorite things to cook
I love going to farmer?s markets and organic food stores and finding the freshest, most vibrant veggies available. Afterwards I look for innovative ways to serve my delectable treasure. I have discovered God?s treasures: kohlrabi, daikon, purple potatoes and pomelos are recent finds. Because I live in Hawaii, I see a lot of unique produce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mama mia is Italian and a fabulous cook. She taught me to grocery shop looking for the freshest produce . . . and creating meals that highlight God?s glorious gifts whether they be brussel sprouts or eggplant. Only the freshest and the best on Mama Mia?s table.

Rainbow Roasted Pepper Soup
This is a pretty soup, but it was too much effort for a taste that was not sensational. I used cumin instead of fennel and did not add thyme . . . perhaps that made all the difference? I think I prefer my peppers cut up ad fried with onions.

Tom Yum Koong Soup
I have used this recipe 4 or 5 times in the past year. This is a must do soup for anyone with a cold or sinus infection. The lemongrass, lime, ginger and chili pepper are a kick cold killer combo. I fell in love with this soup at a nearby Thai restaurant. I am never one to follow a recipe . . . but I kinda follow the basics on this one. My shrimp stock was made only from the tails of raw shrimp. I used regular ginger instead of galangal. I added cherry tomatoes just like they did at the restaurant. Another time I added spinach. The last time I made this I added turmeric, garlic and sweet potatoes to the soup. The basic stock recipe here is awesome . . . shrimp shells, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, chili pepper . . . an exotic pick me up and virus killer.
