Spicy Orange Beef Stir Fry
About this Cook
I am married with two children. I read 3-4 books per week. I also work part time from home as a marketing consultant to small businesses. I work on imaging, web design and maintenance, newsletters, etc. I am new to the part time business, so I have had to find other things to fill up my time. I am a proud "Team Mom" to my sons soccer team and an avid shopper with my daughter.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking ethnic foods - asian, mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't know if I've been cooking long enough to have any traditions yet, but we do enjoy the tradition of having dinner as a family 5 days per week. I have also started getting my children involved with helping and setting the table. It's becoming a family affair.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make something that does not come in a box.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made spaghetti, I boiled it to long and it became a pot of mush! This was about 6 years ago. It really turned me off cooking, but I've realized that cooking is something that takes practice, just like anything else.

Carmel's Crunchy Pea Salad
This is a quick and great recipe for a BBQ. I used bacon bits instead of bacon and left out the cashews to save time. It was still great.

Just like mom used to make! This was absolutely perfect. Not too sweet, but just right.
