About this Cook
I'm 34 years old and live in Birmingham, AL with my boyfriend since Sept 2005. We own five cats that are pretty much our "children." I completed my second culinary degree in September 2009 and now have an Associate's in Pastries, Baking & Confectionery Arts and an Associates in Culinary Arts.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking, but the less time-consuming a dish is, the better, since I am always so busy with everything else!
My cooking tragedies
I was making a white chocolate cake once, and normally I stir the chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat until it's almost melted. Then I pull it completely off the heat. I got to talking to my boyfriend (had the heat on high so it'd warm up), and I completely forgot about it! In the middle of a sentence, I jumped up to check on it. The chocolate & saucepan both went in the garbage!

Grilled Salmon I
I am not a salmon person, but I am trying to eat a little healthier, so I am on the lookout for some fish recipes to include into my rotation. This was a hit with my boyfriend and I. We both liked it, so I will be making this again!

Taco Seasoning I
Tastes just like the taco seasoning packs! My boyfriend couldn't tell a difference, and it's without the additives they put in the packets. Also, I cut the salt down to 1/2 tsp to reduce sodium.
