About this Cook
I'm a single Dad with an 12 year old girl.(update:recently remarried! Also , we have relocated to Northeastern Brazil in the last few years. New recipes!:)) I'm also a diabetic, so my cooking and eating habits are somewhat regulated by that. I'm determined to find my way back to the styles of food I like though. I'll share as I discover.
My favorite things to cook
Sausage Gravy, French bread, Chicken curry, Dill and garlic Salmon, Pot Roast, Enciladas

Red Velvet Cake
Good solid recipe. Made it here in Brazil where the quality of ingredients can vary quite a bit and it still came out great. For what it's worth, I used a small container of Gel food coloring because it is difficult to locate 1 oz. bottles. Came out a nice bright red and good consistency.

Great recipe! I made this for my Brazilian family who rarely try "ethnic" foods. They loved it and have requested it at family meals many times since.
