About this Cook
I work part time at the seafood department of the grocery store in our town. I am happily married and have two children 7 and 8.
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic food! We never eat anything bland and boring, always using bold, flavourful ingredients and unique recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom loves making desserts; i'm not a big dessert fan though. My father makes a mean chicken kiev!
My cooking triumphs
My thai curry pastes from scratch My Indian chicken with almonds/pistashios (hopefully soon to be posted!), Chicken Baton Rouge (cajun marinated chicken, or shrimp, mushrooms, green peppers, onions in a sherry cajun cream sauce)
My cooking tragedies
'Cement-head award of the year' award, given to ME! I can't bake to save my life. My biggest error...thinking I could use corn oil instead of corn syrup in a cookie recipe. Duh!!! (boy did they spread on the pan!)

Doris's Shrimp Salad
I prepared this as an appetizer for last night's dinner and was very pleased with the end result. I added chopped avocado just before serving and it complimented the shrimp perfectly. Only change I'd make is use less mayo next time and more lemon. Flavours improved overnight although it didn't do much for the avocado!

No Name Orange Roughy
I thought this recipe was excellent! The only thing I would change,and this wasn't a mistake on Christopher's part, is adding a pinch of sugar to the tomatoes as the tinned variety available to me was a bit too acidic. We added a few green olives since we like them and used fresh rosemary. A lovely dish. Went perfectly with the vegetable couscous from this site! Thanks!
