About this Cook
I am 43, married since I was 20. I have one son who is 20. I was born and raised in San Diego and was a true city girl. Spent my youth drinking, dancing, and surfing. I moved to Tucson six years ago and have become a homebody. Im a nurse by trade but really enjoy growing veggies, raising chickens, sewing, crochet, canning, and now cooking. My friend gave me a kitchenaid mixer and since then, I have gotten pretty good at baking bread, cookies, cakes, etc. I have been doing some candy melt thingies and decorating with icing lately. I take most of my creations to work. This is where I get some good criticism and they love to eat things until I get it exactly right. I am now more interested in learning how to cook the perfect steak and reducing.
My favorite things to cook
Monkey bread is easy and always a hit. I also like to make lumpia and variations of it with egg roll wrappers. I made a variation using scrambled eggs, cheese, onion, and sausage in egg roll wrap. Now they beg for it at work. I really need to work on pie crusts and perfecting knish dough
My favorite family cooking traditions
I didnt really have any growing up. My husband likes magic cookie squares at thanksgiving and christmas brew. He is a great cook but very messy.
My cooking triumphs
perfiterols with orange chantilly cream and chocolate ganache. monkey bread and lumpia. barbacoa.
My cooking tragedies
I once used salt instead of sugar for sugar cookies. My husband thinks most of my cooking is a tragedy and he says I still shop like Im in college.

Easy Broiled Lobster Tails
the shells caught fire and smoked like crazy even at eight inches away from the broiler. took them out and they werent done. put them back in after cutting off the shells and they dried out. may be operator error, but this one wont stay in my recipe box.
