About this Cook
I am married to my husband of almost 10 years and we have an almost 9 year old. I love to sing, and love to cook, so I usually sing while I am cooking! We live in OMG IT RAINS ALL THE TIME!!!! *sarcasm* Seattle and live a pretty normal lifestyle. I love to eat out at new and exciting places, but I am learning to love discovering new recipes to try out on my own. My son has Asperger's syndrome, so along with that comes a whole new level of pickiness when it comes to eating. He eats mainly "white" foods, which can severely limit what I can make for him. He is slowly coming around though :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. But I find that as long as I take my time and enjoy myself while I cook or bake, it becomes my favorite thing to do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polska Kielbasa, cheesecake, apple pie.
My cooking triumphs
I recently baked successfully with yeast, just the other day. I am so friggin proud my myself! I was so terrified before that it wouldn't work out.
My cooking tragedies
Have fun, enjoy yourself, and worry about the mess later!

Grilled Lemon Chicken
My whole family gobbled this up! I paired it with the Jasmine Rice recipe from this site and it was a very well rounded dish. It was like I was dining at a mediterranean resturant.

Jasmine Rice
I added garlic and omitted the peas because.... well no one, including myself, would not have liked that. This dish was very flavorful and was a nice change up from the standard jasmine rice my family eats.

Cordon Bleu Chicken Rolls
This was amazing! I used Panko Bread crumbs and I also used some mayo to help hold the cheese and ham inside the chicken. This was my first stab at making Chicken Cordon Bleu from scratch and I was not disappointed! I did not make the sauce, however, because we tend to be a non-sauce family. Thank you!
