About this Cook
I'm a mom of two wonderful girls and wife to one big kid. I cook all of our meals as organically as possible. I love to include my four year old in all of my cooking. That way, she enjoys (or regrets in some cases) the fruits of our labor.
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate! What else? I my daughter and I fight over who gets to lick the spoon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyday my daughter and I cook together. I hope it become a tradition to continue to cook with me as she grows.
My cooking triumphs
If I make anything without a recipe and it tastes halfway decent, that's a major success!

Royal Icing I
This was good, but I didn't like the lemon extract.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style
This was super delicious. I added some packet of fried rice seasoning I found in the Asian section and it was great. My first successful attempt at fried rice. Thanks!

Ginger Dipping Sauce
Perfect! I cannot praise this recipe enough. When I was an extreme beginner, I used ground ginger spice. Oh, how wrong I was. Fresh ginger is key! I used my food processor and it became clogged with the large chunks of ginger I put in. So pre-chop your ginger into no larger than thin 1/2 inch pieces. Process the solids, then mix in the soy if you have a small processor like I. I served this with steak and shrimp hibachi, fried rice, and egg rolls. Once again, perfect!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
