About this Cook
I'm married with 3 kids. I love to try new recipes. I also enjoy bike riding and horse back riding.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with chicken and turkey. My kids love it when I bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is making sugar cookies with my kids during the Christmas holiday. I let them decorate however they want even if I think that it looks horrible. Then we give them away as gifts from my kids.
My cooking triumphs
I think that any time I try a new recipe, especially if it is with ingredients I am not familiar with, and it turns out good - that is my cooking triumph!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made a cake from scratch I got the recipe from my grandmother over the phone. She said "three fourths cup of shortening" I thought she said three and one fourth cup shortening. It made a realy fluffy batter that caught my oven on fire half way through baking. Even though I have baked that cake many times after that first cake, I still get teased.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing
The dressing was awesome, I used corn tortillas and grilled them first. I have also made this with whole frozen fish fillets that had a crispy crust (fish sticks) and it was passable in a hurry... Nice recipe to rotate through family dinners - my kids enjoyed it with tartar sauce instead of the chipolte dressing

Steak Soup
This was pretty good. Maybe with a better cut of meat it could be "Steak Soup", it tasted more like beef stew.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables
Very nice. Made as written and it turned out great. The filling could also easily be mixed with some more tomato and some cooked pasta with a little cheese for an Italian meal.
