About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom to two little girls. My husband and I have been married 6 years. I spend my days enjoying my time with my daughters before they grow up too quickly.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying different recipes and experimenting. I cook a lot of pasta and olive oil type dinners, but I also love to cook Spanish recipes, Southern, and other types.
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving I was trying to have a Spanish theme for my husband. Making Spanish foods that his mom use to make him when he grew up. Everything turned out great, except, the puerto rican pasteles. They were so much work trying to make them. It took all day to make them and they turned out into a mushed mess. Never again will I try to conquer making pasteles.

Greek Green Beans
These are my new favorite way to have green beans. I didn't have fresh green beans so I used a can of organic french cut style green beans. I didn't add salt or sugar. Just seems odd to have sugar on green beans. I did sprinkle on some organic garlic powder. I cooked in the onions in the olive oil first, then added in the tomatoes as I diced them. I diced the tomato into small and medium sized pieces. After all the tomatoes were in, I added in the can of organic green beans. I drained all the water in the can before adding them in. Only took about five minutes after that and it was done. They turned out delicious. I'll definitely be making this recipe again.

Best London Broil Ever!
I made this last night and it turned out fantastic. I used two organic grass-fed london broils. I used a can of organic whole tomatoes. I sliced the tomatoes into medium size chunks. I sprinkled on some garlic powder and pepper. Baked it for 3 hours at 350 degrees covered with aluminum foil. During the last five minutes on top of the london broil I sprinkled basil, pepper, and garlic powder. Covered it back up and cooked for the remaining five minutes. The london broil came out so tender and juicy. My husband loved it as well. On the side I made a Greek Green Beans recipe on this site and it matched up well with the london broil. I'll definitely make this again.

Marinated Mushrooms II
I was really hoping to like these, but I didn't and neither did my husband. Too vinegary tasting. I think next time I'll cut back on the vinegar and try adding more herbs.
