About this Cook
Mother of 2 ~ I'm all about cooking and spoiling my kids with yummy eats ~ whether its their school lunches or midday snacks on the weekends. I love being creative and opening their minds to great and nutritious foods. My favorite saying: "You'll never know if it tastes good, if you don't try it!" I am always open to suggestions and love to browse recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and see the smiles when someone bites into something I've made :). I am dedicated to documenting my grandmothers and mothers recipes to hand down to my daughter and sons, so they can enjoy the same recipes of "love" that I grew up with!

Amber's Sesame Chicken
AWESOMENESS!! I used 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup corn starch to fry my dark meat chicken (personal preference). I had no 5 spice powder on hand so in the flour mixture, I used 1 tsp powdered ginger 1/4 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg which coincidentally is 3 out of the 5 spices in 5spice powder. Other reviews said to increase the sauce, so I used 1/2 cup teriyaki and 1/3 cup honey -plenty of sauce for the jasmine rice. My kids and my DH who is a finicky Chinese food eater loved it! He even said that when he burped it burped like Chinese food (now that's a compliment).

Tri-Tip Rub
I have never made tri-tip before. I saw this recipe and used this rub. I only used one tblsp black pepper and 1 tblsp kosher salt since I have young kids that don't like anything spicy. I seared the tri tip on the grill and then turned all the burners off except one (indirect heat) and closed the lid for 30 mins. This is juicy, flavorful and I really enjoyed it. Thanks ALEAH!

Chip Chicken Lollipops
Hey these were good! Kids liked the chip aspect and I did too (I used a baked BBQ chip). Actually crunchier than our regular recipe. Great Recipe!
