About this Cook
I am 27 years old, married and work as an accounting manager in a family architectural millwork company in Fresno, Califoria. I also have two boston terriers who I adore named Maggie and Emmie.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook period. Nothing specifically, we eat a lot of lean meat and wheat based pasta meals. I enjoy making wonderful dinners in minimal amounts of time. I am not a big baker but will make the occasional desert. I am ore of a meal and salad cooker I guess you could say.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Using fresh spices in everything I make. If a recipe calls for garlic powder I use real garlic, if it calls for basil, I use fresh. I think fresh ingredients are the key to making amazing food.
My cooking triumphs
Not having to cut the meat open to see if its done! I am finally confident enough in my cooking to know when chicken is no longer pink and when a steak is perfectly rare without ruining it by cutting it open!
My cooking tragedies
Once I was making stuffed shells for a cooking class I was in. I was the lead of my "team" so I was the one who would read the recipe and deligate tasks. The recipe called for 1/4 tsp. of grated lemon rind and I misread is and had one of my teammated grate the whole lemon. Needless to say the end result was a little sour. No pun intended...

Tortilla Soup II
This recipe is amazing! No need to cook your own chips though if time is an issue. Store bought tortilla chips will do just as well (but the homemade ones do taste better).

Kat's Island Chicken
A++ This recipe is wonderful "as is" but I like to add a little chili powder and cayenne pepper to spice it up. It gives it a great sweet and spicy kick thats just right!
