This month I was given a roll of Reynolds® foil.  This is something I already always keep in my house and use regularly.  It is such an awesome product that is so versatile!  I always use it to line baking trays while baking meat or potatoes, to cover dishes, to wrap up sandwiches or bread,… MORE

About this Cook
I have four little boys, three of which are very picky eaters, so I'm always trying to make things that they'll like. My family and I just moved to Upstate NY and are loving exploring around our new home and finding great restaurants. I love taking pictures of my kids, reading, making invitations and cards in Photoshop and decorating our new home.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake. Especially cupcakes and cake. I'm not much of a decorator, but I can make a delicious cake! My family enjoys a lot of pastas and stir frys. We also just got our first gas grill and I've been loving that! It's so much quicker than charcoal! =) I love to try new recipes. I'd say that I try something new at least once a week, if not more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is half Korean, and I love cooking with her. We usually make kimchi and Korean BBQ together for most of our family get togethers.
My cooking triumphs
I've become very proud of the fact that I can make cakes and cupcakes without any recipes now. I can just kind of throw things together, a lot of the time without measuring, even!
My cooking tragedies
In the past I've made many failed cakes that were too moist (no matter how long I put them back in the oven) or had those cakes that sink in the middle...just not pretty looking! And it's also always a tragedy to have to do the dishes after cooking! =)

Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting
I really enjoyed these. I'm not one to typically use boxed cake mix, but I did for this and it saved a lot of time and still tastes great. I like more spice than the average person, so I added more ancho chile powder and cayenne pepper and also some cinnamon to the cake mix. They turned out pretty great!

Arroz Rojo (Mexican Red Rice)
I've tried a few Mexican red rice recipes and this has been my favorite by far. I followed the recipe exactly as written. It was amazing. I wanted to eat the whole pot. =)

Chicken Chimichangas with Sour Cream Sauce
These were amazing! I followed the recipe as written, except I didn't make the sour cream sauce, just used a dollop of sour cream on top. They didn't last long in our house! I'm definitely going to make the sour cream sauce next time.
