About this Cook
I am a senior nursing student and try to cook when I'm not studying. I have lived in all parts of the country, but am in Colorado to stay, at least for a little while. I am married, and my husband and I love to eat and enjoy trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Italian dishes and baked goods.

Best Black Beans
Everytime I make black beans at home, I find there is something missing. Finally, I've found an easy, delicious black bean recipe. Instead of cayenne, I used chili powder (because everytime I use cayenne I use too much and end up throwing out the dish), and as another reviewer suggested, I sauteed my onion in a bit of olive oil prior to adding everything else. The cilantro is a MUST and I squirted a little lime juice at the end for extra flavor. This is my new "go-to" recipe for black beans. Thanks so much!!!
