My kiddo and me
A Cook in Love
About this Cook
I am newly married with a ten year old daughter and just recently became a domestic engineer, which gives me time to do what I absolutely love...to cook!
My favorite things to cook
My chocholic aunt just passed away of cancer (everyone should quit smoking!!!), so I don't get to cook sweets anymore. I love cooking with fresh ingredients from the farmer's market or right out of our garden. I like making healthy meals that taste great so we don't miss the things that are bad for us.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking mexican food with my mom and sister-in-law around the holidays instead of the traditional turkey dinner, along with plenty of margaritas!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for my family and making vegetables and healthy cuts of meat taste good for my daughter so she will eat them. The last thing I tricked her on was a bbq shrimp burger. She thought she didn't like shrimp.
My cooking tragedies
As a teenager, before I learned to cook, I was trying to make instant mashed potatoes for my little cousins from a box...It ended up being potato soup.

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers
Made with beef, 1 cup of green onions instead of white, forgot soy sauce, salt and pepper and probably used a bit more cheese. Huband grilled them. Excellent!!!!

Cream of Tomato (Tofu)
I doubled the tomatoes and onion, cooked in garlic olive oil. I added 16 oz of soft tofu and a can of Progresso cream of tomato soup and mixed it all with an emulsion blender. The texture was weird so I put it in batches through a sieve. Then it was good! Thanks for the recipe.

Cabbage Cakes
I added caraway seeds as recomended, subbed lowfat cottage cheese for yogurt, doubled the eggs, and used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 rye bread crumbs. Really good. Kiddo is taking a few for her lunch today.
