About this Cook
I am a newlywed and love cooking up delicious meals for me and my husband!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking healthy meals that taste like they are not. Quinoa is one of my favorite foods to cook with, since it has good flavor, is versatile, and a very good source of protein. Generally speaking, I like to try new recipes frequently, unless I find something that is ridiculously good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents cooked relatively tame things growing up, but a good bowl of homemade chicken dumpling soup always hits the spot, and makes me feel a bit nostalgic!
My cooking triumphs
I make the best chicken pot pie - I have yet to try a better one. When I make a new recipe, my husband rates it on the 1 - pot pie scale ;)
My cooking tragedies
I was trying to quickly make a loaf of zucchini bread, and instead of using flour I accidentally used powdered sugar instead! I was wondering why it wasn't rising, and then realized what I did! Luckily, I had more zucchinis so I still got my bread, and the slurry from my mistake actually tasted very good on ice cream!

Spicy Garlic Salmon
All I did different is use red pepper flakes since I didn't have a whole chile pepper, and it was phenomenal! It is definitely for garlic lovers :) Thanks for this recipe!

Brunzie's Baseball Casserole
I make this recipe all the time...very simple to make, and very delicious! I think it is a must to add the cheddar cheese soup. If you don't have a can of chicken noodle around, just add a cup of chicken broth.
