About this Cook
I grew up as a USMC brat in a family of 6. I started cooking at a young age, and as time has gone by, my interest has developed into a passion. I enjoy cooking and baking, and one of my recent ventures has been into the arena of cake decorating. I find cooking and baking a very worthwhile activity to pursue, I view baking and cooking as a labour of love. While I do enjoy "tweaking" recipes, I will always make it as originally stated, it really amuses me when people "massacre" recipes and then rate them so low, so I make it a point to always try the recipe as written the first time around! I host a blog which can be found at
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking, especially with herbs, thus Italian food is a favourite of mine especially lasagna! I especially love making a red velvet cake, the vibrant red colour is so exquisite when topped with the traditional butter roux frosting -I've been called a "red velvet snob" as I always refuse a red velvet cake that has been frosted with (gasp) cream cheese frosting!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on Christmas, mum & dad cook together in the kitchen making an amazing breakfast - pancakes, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, biscuits and gravy...there's just something comforting about sharing breakfast together on Christmas day. Afterwards I would bake a red velvet birthday cake and then dad would read the real Christmas story and we would then open presents!
My cooking triumphs
I view every successful recipe as a triumph and I'm quite pleased w/ my recipe for pecan crusted trout
My cooking tragedies
As of today my worst cooking tragedy was when I burned a rack of baby back ribs...they were "extra crispy"!

Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake
So I decided to try my hand at the healthy chocolate mug cake. I bought some quinoa flour last month and decided to use it in this recipe. I also chose to use agave nectar in place of honey...and since the original recipe indicated you could use a fourth a cup of applesauce I did that instead of the banana...hmm interesting indeed! I can't detect the taste of the quinoa flour!!! Success!!

Argentinean Skirt Steaks
I appreciate the warning about the adobo seasoning. I do use adobo, but sparingly as it is laden w/ sodium. I couldn't see myself adding more (salt) to the steak - for a quick steak this was easy, but lacked a wow factor for me.

Easy Garlic Kale
I liked the simplicity of this recipe. Great side and fast to make - no changes other than using kale that was already made preparation that much faster
