My name is Jaana and I love to cook and bake! I live in Washington State with my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter. I cook everything from baby food, dinner, to appetizers for our Friday/Saturday game night crew.

Every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving, my deviled eggs are always requested!
My cooking triumphs
It's been quite a few years since I've made something inedible! I remember when my husband and I first got together, I was burning mac and cheese!
My cooking tragedies
Ha! Probably the burnt mac and cheese!

Traditional Mexican Guacamole
We really enjoyed this! I think next time I will use lime juice (instead of lemon juice) and minced garlic. I'll also add a second jalapeno. Great recipe! Thank you!

Mexican-Style Fajitas
I was hopeful. Used a really nice beer to marinate the meat in. We really enjoy more spice! It was a great base, but we found we wanted sour cream, guacamole, and taco sauce. I also thought it was weird that the veggies were in with raw meat, but the recipe doesn't instruct to cook them! I did!

Healthy Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa
We loved these tacos! I used soft tacos and made the shells star burst shaped before I put them in the oven draped over on the racks. This created a stand-up hard taco with a fun shape. I then used the cut-outs for cinnamon and sugar chips for dessert! I added garlic to the seasoning for the fish, and used cod (as this is what I had). The result was a fantastic dinner. We really enjoyed the mango salsa and will be eating any left overs with nachos! I will for sure make this again!
