About this Cook
I am 37 years old and I live in Grand Rapids, MI. I just bought a new house with my husband. We have an 11 year old daughter and we have a pit bull named Zara. Until three years ago I was "career woman hear me roar". Getting more in touch with my domestic side brought me to the kitchen, and I'm loving it.
My favorite things to cook
EVERYTHING and ANYTHING. I got my feet wet with desert but I will cook anything. I love pushing the envelop with exotic ingredients and sharing recipes with my sister Julie who lives in New Jersey. I go in spurts with what I cook. I will cook one thing and then I will spin it 10 different ways over two months.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am making my own cooking traditions. The first deserts I made for my husband when we were dating were cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake. A couple of thanksgivings ago my mother made a "house to dress a turkey" video. It ruled!
My cooking triumphs
Besides the cheesecake and flourless chocolate I would have to say my biggest triumph has been an apple pie I made for my father. It knocked my mother's recipe out of the water and now she uses my recipe (sorry mom).
My cooking tragedies
The first couple of quiche I made were disgusting. I tend not to follow recipes unless it's desert. I have learned to find a good base recipe and build from there.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup
the soup is really good. The key is the cumin. I probably added more than three tablespoons. I used two less cans of broth (so that it was heartier). When soup was done I split it into two bowls, added chicken for my husband and tofu for myself. I also added extra corn and black beans, I put a bit of cheese on top and crunched up some tortilla chips on top.
