About this Cook
I have been cooking all my life but I feel that my repertoire is lacking. I'm trying to expand my culinary horizons. I am recently uprooted from my hometown and have loads of time on my hands to experiment! YUM!
My favorite things to cook
Italian-- I do a really great lasagna... Mexican-- since I am from San Diego, is also a huge influence in my cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I just mastered the art of making ciabatta bread in my bread maker!
My cooking tragedies
The only tragedies I have experienced lately is that I can't find any good quality cuts of meat. Everything I have bought here in Canada is tough!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
I just made these cookies and they turned out awesome! Light and semi crispy but still chewy. I always use organic cane sugar instead of the more refined sugars and I find it makes them even tastier. I followed the recipe exactly except I added chopped pecans. Super yummy!

Chicken Kabobs Mexicana
YUM-O! This was sooooooooo outstandingly tasty! The only thing I did differently was add some chopped garlic to the marinade but that's it! I marinated for about 3 hours. Thanks for posting. I will definitely make this again. My family scarfed it down!:)
