About this Cook
I love to experience life, and my favorite ways to do it are being outside, using my imagination, or trying new food experiences, flavors and textures.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Penne in Creamy Tomato Vodka sauce, or Chicken Gravy over Red Mashed Potatos.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother always made the best recipes from the most simple ingredients and put them on colorful pages in cookbooks so my brother and I could have fun in the kitchen without so many failures.
My cooking triumphs
I have had many great reviews from friends and family about my meals I make entirely from scratch off the top of my head. I am good at making do with whatever I have in my kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Once I made a Tamale pie but didn't realize the corn masa that I had purchased was self rising. I had 1/5 filling to 4/5 crust. Big Bummer!!!

Squash and Coconut Milk Stew
This turned out fantastic! Perfect to warm you up on a cold day. I tend to skip tofu, so instead I cooked up 3 pieces of chicken. I sauted it up with the ginger & onion then let it finish cooking with the squash.

Avocado Dessert
Seriously if people don't like avacados then don't bother, but I LOVED it! It was such a nice change from normal. Thanks for the great idea!

African Curry
All the presentation and colors turned out lovely. The only issue is it is a very basic recipe and does not have much flavor. No matter how much extra seasoning my husband & I added, it did little to enhance the flavor. It tasted fine though. We added some hot chili sauce to spice it up and ate the rest.
