About this Cook
i love to cook and experiment with recipes. i try to make them more healty without losing the flavor. i usually succeed. i sometimes find myself cooking for no real reason~~it relaxes me and for me, there isn't anything i love more than cooking, drinking a little wine and listening to the blues!
My favorite things to cook
zucchini 'crab' cakes, vegetarian egg rolls, tostadas, fish tacos, anything mexican. i'm not vegetarian but I do a lot of vegetarian cooking for my vege son
My favorite family cooking traditions
weekend breakfasts and family get togethers. the get togethers don't happen often enough but when they do i try to go all out ~~ interesting appetizers and something everyone will love
My cooking triumphs
starting a catering company (with a couple partners) up in just 2 days. that was quite a chore. after a year in business we had quite a following. it was very fulfilling to see people coming back for more of my cooking and raving about it! it got to be too much work and i had to get out. that was one way of getting me to DREAD cooking. i like doing it for pleasure, not for money
My cooking tragedies
corned beef and cabbage once....I'll never make it again. We all grossed out! My young son said, 'mom, dont ever make that again ok' lol

Crispy Fish
Very crispy texture. Delicious taste. This is my new recipe for fish taco coating(I used to use a beer batter but it gets soggy). This recipe holds the crispiness even after it has cooled. When you are making a lot of fish, and dont want to eat in shifts, this is the recipe ?

Chinese Chews II
Delicious! I substituted pecans for the walnuts because i like pecans more. I dont know what is Chinese about these but I did like them. the bottom is like a shortbread cookie but a little crumbly, the top was like a pecan pie with coconut. Some reviews say the bottom layer is boring but i found it perfect. if it were any sweeter, everyone would be complaining about that. the top is so sweet you need a more bland bottom. loved this ?
