Me and my hubby!
About this Cook
I've been married for 18 years and we have 4 kids. I help manage our business, and am very busy with that, kid's sports/activities, appointments, etc. I didn't learn how to cook much when I lived at home, but I've learned a lot since then. I have a few special recipies that are all my own, and that's a pretty neat feeling.
My favorite things to cook
My lasagna and chicken noodle soup. These are my own special recipies and my family LOVES them. I also make lumpia (Filippino version of an egg roll) for special occasions and this is always a big hit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When baking cookies, the cook gets to eat all of the broken ones! No breaking cookies on purpose though! :-)
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for the high school football team dinner, two times, and for my friends surprise anniversary party. There was plenty of food, everything came out great, and everything was ready at the same time. It looked like I was a really good cook and that I had it all together. Nobody knew it was just luck. :-)
My cooking tragedies
I found a recipe for what I though would be individual chocolate cakes with the melted fudge center. I was going to make this for a casual dinner party I was attending. I prepared everything and cooked up one for my daughter who could not go. Lucky thing because it was horrid. I had to make a quick trip to the store for precooked brownies and ice cream. Definately not the dessert I had promised.

Quick and Easy Shrimp Fajitas
Exactly the recipe I needed! Simple, flavorful and fast! I didn't use the peppers because Hubby doesn't eat them, so I used mushrooms instead. He loved it! Thank you so much!

Chicken Marsala
Very easy and yummy. I used chicken thighs because that's what my family prefers. Also, didn't have Sherry so only used Marsala. This, I do not recommend. It was a bit too sweet. I doubled the sauce and it was perfect over pasta.

Almond-Raspberry Meringue Bars
Very simple to make! It was good but I would prefer it with less crust and more raspberry. The crust was more cake style and seemed to overtake the overall flavor.
