About this Cook
I am a recently married So Cal native. I have a bachelor's in photojournalism from CSU Fullerton. I currently am working as a teacher's substitute.
My favorite things to cook
Spraghetti, and beefy things in my slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
grandma made salmon patties- I can't find my copy, but there was canned salmon, egg, and saltine craackers. My other grandma wrote a meatloaf recipe telling how many ketchup packets (from fast food) it would take in her meatloaf recipe- definitely an unusual source for condiments, but thrifty:)
My cooking triumphs
I am good at roasting chickens- I made a turkey dinner for my parents and in laws when my husband and I were dating
My cooking tragedies
First time I used my slow cooker, I burnt the food (didn't put liquid in.) I am horrible at eggs, except I can make scrambled.

London Broil for the Slow Cooker
I usually don't do as much garlic, since my people are not garlic people- but it's not too much. This is epic over rice with the sauce.

Instead of chicken wings, made breasts- delish!

Cucumber Salsa
My mom and husband both agreed- too much sour cream and yogurt, could not taste the flavoring. It would be helpful to know how many cups of cucumber, two medium was not enough for me.

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
