About this Cook
I am a cook-for-fun who enjoys cooking for my fiance and my 17 month-old son. I don't have as much time for cooking intricate meals as I would like so I especially enjoy recipes that seem intricate but are really quick and easy. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love trying world cuisine, especially Mediterranean and Indian food. I also enjoy baking cookies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have five brothers, so growing up we always had large meals that needed to be ready in a jiff. I was always amazed at the one pot meals that were so delicious -- great chicken noodle soup, beef stew, chili, spaghetti. Nothing gourmet, but it sure was delish.
My cooking triumphs
My fiance asked me to make my jambalaya again.
My cooking tragedies
I find it most tragic when I make something wonderful, but forget how I made it.

Gingerbread Biscotti
This recipe turned out well and I definitely would make it again. I feel like it could use a little something-something to make the flavors really come out, but I can't put my finger on what exactly it needs. I had no problems with the biscotti coming out too tough and I followed the recipe exactly. After they cooled I drizzled some gingerbread frosting (recipe found on this site) over top and it did help a bit with jazzing it up. I would even consider adding some dried fruit to this recipe.

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning
I did not have beef bouillon on hand so I used beef broth instead of water. It cooked down much quicker than anticipated. This was a very easy way to season taco meat... I shall never buy the seasoning packets again!
