About this Cook
Jesus Christ is cool! I used to be stuck in this job that I hated- long hours, high stress, very percise- extremely well paid- but now I'm living overseas and loving it.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom's Christmas Dinner- White Soup, Pickled Roasted Pepper Salad, Snow Peas in Blackened Butter, Roast Pork Medalions with Pear and Tangerine Chutney, and finished off with chocolate mouse cake! A going on 20 year tradition...
My cooking triumphs
Talking my friends (all 8 couples of them) into a 'let's make Thai and then eat it' party. Some of the guys ran off for the afternoon until it was ready, but we had a blast!
My cooking tragedies
Fried tofu in ginger sauce (10 years ago) I had never eated fried tofu, and well... It's the only time we've chucked dinner in the trash and ordered pizza.

Pop's Dill Pickles
Good, but thought my pickles were slightly soft. Tried Ball pickle crisp- utter fail! Ruined the ones I made with it, I'm going back to following the "pure" recipe.

Sweet and Sour Green Beans
Used frozen green beans and a little water. Worked great. Halved the recipe for 3 adults, and had leftovers.

Sweet Potato Enchiladas
My husband, mother-n-law, an myself thought these were great. Try 'em with peach salsa! However, as a warning, the teenager thought they were too weird.

Salsa from Mild to Wild

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
