About this Cook
Just relocated from Hawaii to Washington (long story) and have finally acquired a decent size kitchen. On top of that, I have a hungry boyfriend who appears to enjoy my cooking, so I am always looking for awesome new recipes to try out on him (he doesn't mind).
My favorite things to cook
I love international cuisine - I'm trying to learn as many different ones as I can. But I love cooking Tex-Mex too - I grew up on it! I'm getting back into baking as well - my boyfriend just bought me a stand mixer and I'm starting to think its a ploy to get me to make him cupcakes....
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whenever my Mother makes Pico de Gallo everyone crowds around and it gets devoured within minutes! Whenever we visit we're like "Where's the Pico?" Also my late Grandmother's chocolate chip cookies. There were usually several batches available on a daily basis when we would visit :)
My cooking triumphs
My Tex-Mex is pretty good, I think. I heap on tons of fresh vegetables and make it spicy as possible because that's how I like it. I make the chunkiest queso in town LOL. I made fettucine alfredo from scratch the other day, with peas and prosciutto, as well as a lasagna, and they were both delish!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make Brioche once. It's a sweet tender french bread. Came out hard as rocks and I had to dump it in the trashcan. I also made a dinner for my Father's birthday...Cappellini Pomodoro and I made way to much pasta wich lowered the flavor dramatically...along with Lemon souffle's which looked beautiful, but nobody like them anyway LOL.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake
I enjoyed this but I did add the three eggs and thinned with a bit of fat free milk. Extremely moist cake and it is quite delicious. We added a thin layer of cream cheese frosting, but still delicious even without it. I used fresh pumpkin because I had gotten a small sugar pumpkin in my CSA box. So yummy!!!

Black Bottom Cupcakes I
I had to make without the chips because I didn't have any, but I think I like them better without anyway. These were great, but not exactly like the BBC's I've had in the past. I will definitely make again though, because they were pretty quick and easy. Thanks!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
I do not have the best record when it comes to cookies, but these came out great! I used peanut butter and chocolate chips because that's what I had and they are really yum. Thanks for the recipe!
