About this Cook
I don't get along with people who don't like to eat. I very much enjoy cooking for people but I hate washing the dishes.
My favorite things to cook
mostly vegetables these days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
screaming at family and eating so much that i have to unbutton my pants and take a nap.
My cooking triumphs
I once had a man propose to me after tasting my bruscetta!
My cooking tragedies
I can bake a 7 tiered wedding cake but I can't figure out how to get my scrambled eggs not to be runny.

Lentil Soup
I really liked this soup. It was a nice change from my simple lentil soup which usually doesn't include crushed tomatoes. I may try crushing whole peeled tomatoes next time instead just to have a chunkier texture. I used balsamic vinegar, and it was great. I enjoyed it.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup
We thought this was delicious. I changed it a bit just because I can tell it could be salty, so my changes are as follows. 1 14 oz can of diced tomatos (no salt) 1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies 2 4 oz chopped green chile peppers 1 vegetable broth cube which is the equal to 2 cups of soup no added salt and pepper to taste-I wouldn't add salt and pepper until the soup is almost done anyway and we didn't need it. mexicali corn Black Beans rinsed Quorn chicken tenders (not vegan but vegetarian) We used Snyders tortilla chips because they are lower in fat and low fat cheese. It really was flavored perfectly this way.

Seven Layer Taco Dip
I wanted to make this for a party and decided to try the recipe out beforehand. I'm glad because it was majorly salty and wouldn't serve this at my party without making some changes. I won't be using the entire taco seasoning mix. My mouth seriously was hurting with each bite. However it looked great.
