About this Cook
I am a counselor and life coach, but more importantly, I am a born-again Christian and newlywed minister's wife interested in all things hospitality. I love to serve and minister to others out of my love for God, since he sent his Son to offer me forgiveness for my sins through Jesus' death and resurrection--praise God! I love to learn new recipes and cooking techniques, especially of the quick, easy, and cheap variety. We tend to entertain a fair share, so finding tips and tricks on cooking, cleaning, and entertaining is a hobby of mine of late.
My favorite things to cook
Hmm...let's see...quesadillas, grilled ham and cheese (hubbie's favorite), pancit with bico (a Filipino dish), stuffed chicken, spaghetti with meat sauce (Mom's recipe), green chili enchiladas (a New Mexico staple), mini meatloaves (good Kraft recipe), farmer's omlett, sausage and saurkraut, and more... We love variety, so I try to mix it up every week with recipes from different cultures. And I use garlic and pepper in just about everything.
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to boil water about ten years ago (not even kidding) and now I can tell the difference in dried spices by the smell and I know what a roux is... Huge learning curve in recent years!

Cake Balls
I just made cake balls last night and here is what I learned: After baking the cake, you only need to let it cool for a few minutes before breaking it apart. Break it apart in a bowl with a big spoon until very crumbly, then add the frosting. When using white cake mix, you may need to use a can and a half of frosting. This mixture would be great by itself (I imagine just sitting down with the bowl, spoon in hand, chick flick in the dvd player). After rolling mixture into balls, stick in freezer for about an hour, till firm. Then poke with skewer, dip into melted almond bark, twirl off of skewer onto wax paper, apply topping (sprinkles, nuts, etc.), and let it set. The cold temperature of the balls will set the almond bark quickly. These were amazingly delicious and very rich!

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
This was the first time I made hummus, and it turned out well! I was in a hurry and just guessed on the measurements, but it didn't seem to make a difference. Love the sweet spicy taste. The color was more orange-y than I anticipated, and the tahini was hard to find, but I just googled specialty food shops in my area and found one close by. Great recipe!

Refried Beans Without the Refry
Sounded so good...but cooks much better when you remember to plug in the crock pot! :-\
