About this Cook
I am married to a great man who is a university professor. I have a two year old daughter who is a delight, 9 month old twin sons are gobbling up food faster than I can make it, and 2 huge black labs who are my constant companions. I used to teach middle and high school, but I am enjoying staying home and taking care of my family!
My favorite things to cook
All of it! I enjoy creating a meal rather than focusing on one recipe. I don't cook much dessert and stick to my tried and true bread/roll recipes, so I can experiment with the rest of the meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We do "breakfast" on Sunday nights since we've usually had a large lunch/dinner after church (and my husband has become an omelet pro!). We are getting into homemade pizza for the weekend nights. I look forward to teaching my daughter how to cook the "family" recipes (bread, hot pepper jelly, etc.).
My cooking triumphs
I cooked a showstopper meal for a couple who was getting engaged--it was impressive and they've been married now for years!
My cooking tragedies
Where to start? The hot can of carmelized condensed milk that exploded all over me, the ceiling (and accompanying pot rack full of pots), and the rest of the kitchen still lives most vividly in my memory.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
Delicious, but definitely blend the oats first and then let them sit for a bit in the milk. Kids all liked it, too! I think the serving size is perfect.

Tastira (Tunisian Fried Peppers and Eggs)
YUM! I only used 1 t. caraway because I wasn't sure about that. But it was delicious. I used 1 poblano and 2 jalapenos and that was just about the perfect amount of "hot peppers." It wasn't too hot at all.

Shredded Apple Carrot Salad
Delicious! I was pleasantly surprised. Big improvement over the usual super sweet varieties.
