About this Cook
I'm a relatively new cook. I started cooking when my boyfriend moved in with me about 5 months ago. I work as a Microbiologist, so I try to feed my southern Alabama boy as many healthy dinners as possible. It's a tricky job but with the help of Allrecipes.com, I've been getting pretty creative. We rarely have leftovers so I think I'm getting pretty good *tooting my own horn*
My favorite things to cook
Middle Eastern (mainly Iranian), Indian, Italian, Eastern Asian food I have a broad palate, and don't mind experimenting. I just avoid fried foods
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving or my Persian mother's cooking
My cooking triumphs
Mahi Mahi with Macadamia Nuts, Scallops and shrimp linguini, Pork Chops with Brocolli, Lamb Tikka Masala, Dutch Babies, Tomato & Spicy Sausage Pie
My cooking tragedies

Chicken Soup
I added turmeric, Italian seasoning, avocados, noodles, bell peppers, red and white onions, lemon juice, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, bay leaves, squash, zucchini. It was amazing! I also cooked everything in low sodium chicken broth instead of water. I served them with wedge fries.

Fresh Tomato Pie
It tasted and looked like a winner. My boyfriend loved it too. I will certainly make it again. He said it was one the most amazing things he has ever tasted! I couldn't get enough of the leftovers. Not soggy at all! Here are the adjustments I made: -Brushed the pie bottom with egg whites , sprinkled Italian bread crumbs into the bottom of the crust, then covered the crust with sliced mozzarella cheese -Baked pastry shell for 10 mins -Saut├ęd onions, bell peppers and garlic in olive oil -Sliced my organic Romano (3 large), cherry and grape tomatoes, added salt & pepper then sprinkled flour on top of them. I then placed them on paper towels for 45 mins. - I didn't use mayo but included goat cheese with my mozzarella combination. I forgot to use my cream cheese but I meant to include it. I added Italian seasoning to my cheese mixture. - I put a middle layer of browned spicy Italian sausage - When assembling the pie I first added the layer of onions and bell peppers, then cheese, followed by the sausage, and finally the cheese again - Garnished with fresh mint then baked for 30 mins at 375 YUMMY! - I'll try to add a photo of it later.. In the meanwhile, I'll go eat more of the leftovers.
