About this Cook
I am a self proclaimed foodie just because I LOVE TO COOK!! I started a photo-recipe blog @ http://www.dreamersalcove.com/kitchen I haven't quite got it the way I wanted it but it's getting there. My goal? Every recipe I create or try has to have a picture!
My favorite things to cook
Soups & stews because my family loves them and they go a lot further towards stretching your budget.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think I have surpassed the standard rice & gravy style dishes that were so prevalent in my family, though I do miss them from time to time. I am teaching my daughters the joy of baking, crockpots, and trying NEW foods.
My cooking triumphs
I've gotten my picky family to eay spinach and ask for my dishes that have it in it LOL! My daughters love trying new foods and different flavors. We love trying new ethnic dishes. My BIGGEST triumph to date is learning how to make lumpia!
My cooking tragedies
My first try at lumpia was an utter fail. I used too much filling and the wrong wrappers and they busted open and soaked up the oil I was frying in and.. YUCK!! I've recently had a run of bad luck with rice. My cooker didn't make my recent move (hit the deck in transit) and I just can't make a decent pot since!
