About this Cook
I'm a country girl at heart, but I love culture: music, plays, dance, etc. I love the Lord who influences my life alot. I try to eat healthy but love food, so I try to make what I eat healthy and satisfying. I am happily married and have one son who keeps me busy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook ethnic dishes. When watching the movie Bend it Like Beckham(sp?) I discoverd a recipe for Aloo Gobi (Cooked Cauliflower). Of course it is much more than that. I tried it and it has now become one of my favorite dishes to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up going back and forth between my parents, so I picked up cooking styles from both. I love my mom's spaghetti and am constantly trying to recreate her spaghetti sauce. I learned to make things easy with my dad, so I like to find shortcuts.
My cooking triumphs
When I was in high school, I orgnaized a Mexican night for our church. Along with a couple other girls, I made 50+ chile rellanos and then taco meat and rice and beans. The dinner was a hit and helped us raise funds for a mission trip.
My cooking tragedies
My family didn't like to let anything go to waste, so we ate leftovers regularly. One night I searched the fridge for leftovers and came across leftover spaghetti and brocolli. I heated them in the microwave and put them on the table only to discover that both dishes had begun to grow mold. I have since leanred to regularly pitch leftovers.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
This is a great recipe. A perfect balance of sweet, salty, and sour with the crisp freshness of asparagus. This is my new favorite recipe for asparagus.

Caribbean Health Drink
I added a cup of apple juice to make it blend smoother. I also used frozen banana in place of the ice cubes.
