About this Cook
I am a very busy woman, traveling internationally quite often. I get a lot of inspiration from foreign meals and enjoy bringing these recipes back home.
My favorite things to cook
I always love to try new things, but I have a few ingredient trends. I love cumin, ranch, bacon, beef, and raisins-- not all together though!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cutout cookies
My cooking triumphs
I made a four course meal including baking bread, making cream of peanut soup, and a super dessert! The meal was also one popular in colonial America. I once took a Spanish class where I was required to make a traditional Latin American dish. I chose flan and even made a cooking video about the process! (My cooking show is in the works and the pilot will air in 2014.)
My cooking tragedies
For a bake-off, I decided to make applesauce snacking cake. The thing is, I forgot to add the applesauce. The snacking cake wasn't quite the same.

Fresh Pumpkin Pie
I ended up using canned pumpkin, but it was delicious! I also used just pumpkin spice. Substituting honey for sugar was genius!

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast
The chicken breasts I used were very large, so I ended up cutting them into small cubes while they were browning. I added the rest of the ingredients and it turned out quite well. This recipe has a lot of flavor!
