Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
About this Cook
I love to cook, and love to experiment in the kitchen. I don't get tired of trying new recipes, and I'm constantly updating my personal collection of recipes!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite cuisines to cook are Mexican and Persian, although there is another side of me that is an American purist. I use fresh and/or organic ingredients whenever possible! Farmer's markets are one of my favorite food resources, as well as natural foods stores...
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook for my family and friends - especially for holidays such as Thanksgiving. I try to cook dinner at least 4-5 times a week at home, if time allows.
My cooking triumphs
I'm proud to say I make most foods from scratch. If a recipes calls for salsa, I will first roast all of my vegetables and make the salsa from scratch for the recipe. Same goes for sauces and broths. There is just so much more flavor and nurturing involved...it's theraputic for me.
My cooking tragedies
I can't say how many times I have burnt basmati rice - not proud moments for me! This usually happens in a time crunch when I'm trying to get the tadik to form at a faster rate on a higher heat. Oops!

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo
EXCELLENT! I've made this three times and each time they came out perfect. The only changes I made: I omitted the cayenne pepper from the chipotle mayo (already plenty spicy with great flavor) and added about 1/2 tsp dijon mustard to the honey/lime/cumin drizzle to act as a light emulsifier. Everyone who has tried these tacos has demanded the recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Macaroon Tunnel Cake
I've been looking for the Pillsbury duplicate myself for years too! Anyone have an idea? I gave this three stars only because I haven't tried the recipe yet, but am searching for the Pillsbury-like coconut filled chocolate bundt cake recipe! :)

Authentic Huevos Rancheros
I see nothing authenic about this recipe. Scratch the beans, scratch the bacon - only use corn tortillas, eggs and fresh homemade salsa rojo(made from dried NM red chilis, water, salt and garlic). Maybe a little queso blanco on top...
