About this Cook
I am a mother of two, a four year old girl and a 2 year old boy. My husband is in the USCG and we are currently stationed in Kodiak, AK. I started cooking for my family really young and haven't stopped since. In high school I took cake decorating lessons and went to culinary school during and after I graduated high school. I cake decorated and cooked in resturants until I stopped to focus on starting a family. I still love to cook and bake for my family and friends but my real passion is cake decorating, finding the time to do it is harder now. I can't wait till my kids are old enough to teach them, my 4 year old is already a big help in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Not much I don't like to cook. I love to bake, make sushi, mexican food and love to try new dishes. At least once a week we eat something new from this site. We hardly eat the same thing twice in a month unless it's one of our favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I try to combind things my husband remembers from his childhood with things of mine and start our own tradition when it comes to special dishes and meals.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph should have been my biggest tragedies. When I made my little sisters wedding cake I made it without any oil! No one ever knew infact I didn't know until days later when I started thinking about it. I had to make this cake in another state and was out of my comfort zone doing so.
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of anything huge, but the second time that I ever cooked a turkey I didn't remove the giblets out of the neck cavity of the bird, I didn't feel them in there and cooked it with the package in.

Black Bean Hummus
I was rushed when I was trying to make this so I didnt want to open my jar of greek olives and chop them up for a garnish but man oh man this was good! My husband hates hummus and after talking to him like I do our children when I want them to just try a bite, he finally did and he took another and another and another...enough said, it's a keeper!

Bubba's Barbequed Skirt Steak
Great recipe Bubba! I did make a mistake, didn't read the directions and added the BBQ sauce to the marination, but I also basted the meat with BBQ sauce, it had lots of flavor. Everyone loved it!
