About this Cook
My husband thinks I'm a good cook, so I put intermediate, but honestly, I believe I am just above beginner level. Sometimes things work. Sometimes they don't.
My favorite things to cook
stir-fry, curry, pies are the things I do best but I love anything that is tasty, healthy, and easy. I also like a good meatloaf every once in a while.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Even though I am American of German/English descent, my family traditions are centered around Asian and Indian cooking. I love spicy food with exotic flavors.
My cooking triumphs
I make great pies. At my husband's family reunions, they hardly even say "hello" before they ask if I brought the pies. I make my own crust from scratch, and the pie never goes to waste. So I guess I am finally convinced that they are not just being nice.
My cooking tragedies
Some days I am just too tired to cook, and I can't always get the right ingredients where I live. I wish I was the creative kind who could whip up something from what I find in the cupboards. Maybe it's just a matter of trying, and to become more creative with what I have should be my goal this year - a good resolution.

Zucchini Relish
Yummy, very good with some dried dill. The only other change was I used red onion and green pepper because that is what I had.

Zucchini Souffle
Yes, it wasn't spicy or zingy, but I added some garlic salt, and it was good. It was great for my 16 month old who has a milk allergy. The only other change I made was using only 1 pound of zucchini which was about 4 cups diced. Maybe my zucchini weighed more because it was bigger? Anyway, this is a good basic recipe that anyone can make and spice up the way they want to.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers
I loved the flavor and how easy this recipe is to make. I used the salmon that comes in the foil pouch, and they turned out just great. This is a very tasty, healthy, and easy recipe.
