Tempura Fried Ice Cream
About this Cook
I am an English teacher as well as a mother of twins.
My favorite things to cook
I have a soft spot for sweets and I'm pretty good at it, but I need recipes. When it comes to other kinds of cooking, I can often make up my own recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am always the designated cook at holidays and parties and I'm always looking for new things to try.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking I burned, over-cooked,under-cooked,and threw away more than I ate. Patience, practice and perseverance have paid off.

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
I used all whole wheat white flour, about 2 tbs. flax seed meal, honey instead of sugar, dried blueberries (about 1/2 cup), and 1 tsp lemon extract. They were probably some of the best muffins I've ever had.

dh doesn't like olives or capers, yet I still put them in and he adored this. The only changes I made was omitting the chili powder and using ground turkey and soyrizo to cut down on fat. We ate it with middle eastern flat bread inspired by the photo.

Chicken Strawberry Spinach Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing
As per other reviewers, added two truvia packets for some sweetness, poppy seeds, used yogurt instead of mayo, but did add one tbs. of mayo in addition because it didn't taste that great with just yogurt. Also made the candied pecans which went well w/ the salad. DH raved about it and didn't even complain that we were just having salad for dinner.
