About this Cook
I just got married and currently am a stay at home wife. I just moved 1800 miles and am trying to find my way in this new life. My husband is in the military and is a pretty picky eater when it comes to vegetables. I have been trying to find a balance of healthy foods while trying to get my husband to eat more veggies.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking all kinds of cuisines. I try and stick to the healthy side of things and don't add a lot of oils or salt to my recipes. I love stir frys and anything with Mexican flavour. I am still learning and am really only comfortable using a recipe, I have started experimenting with substitutions and making things up with what I have on hand. so far so good! I love baking and making cakes and cookies as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
it's not so much a cooking thing, but I love having a nice sunday dinner. It doesn't have to be fancy but just the act of getting together with family and having a nice sit down meal is something I cherish.
My cooking triumphs
I made spanikopita triangles for a christmas party a couple of years ago and they turned out amazing! It was my first time working with phylo so I was happy that it turned out!
My cooking tragedies
ha ha, since I am still learning it seems like there has been a lot. The other day I made salmon and didn't put the rice on at the right time so it wasn't done until about 20 minutes after the fish.

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew
This was good. I used 3 cans of soup by time I wouldn't add the potatoes if I was going to use biscuits. My husband said it didn't taste exactly like pot pie, but that's probably because I used two cans of mushroom soup and one can of chicken. I think I would emit the can of mushroom next time and the potatoes. It makes ALOT.
