That's Me!
About this Cook
I'm a working wife and mother who tries her best to fit home cooking into her busy schedule. Family is number one, and what better way to take care of them than a great home cooked meal?
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook just about anything! I love trying new things and expanding my culinary horizons!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was a child of the 80's/90's when working mothers were in full swing and Hamburger Helper was the norm for dinners. If it came out of a box and all you had to add was water, we probably ate it. That's why it is so important to me to let my daughter experience a wide variety of home cooked, healthy, real food. The thing I remember most about my mother's cooking is the amazing messes she used to make! It still makes me laugh till this day when we cook and make messes together!
My cooking triumphs
I have more trials than triumphs. My husband hails from the Middle East, and my triumphs are usually related to getting a recipe that my mother in law used to make down pat!
My cooking tragedies
I am terribly bad at making rice! I'm working on my technique, but in the meantime, the rice cooker has become my best friend.

Lentil Soup with Lemon
I left out the cilantro because I didnt' have any, and I would recommend leaving the lemon juice on the side for each person to add themselves. I found it a bit too lemony, but my daughter ate 2 bowls! Great recipe!

Peanut Butter Fudge IV
Whipped this up in 5 mintues! Besides microwave fudge, this is by far the easiest and yummiest fudge I've had.
