As a child who grew up with only white eggs, I was skeptical of the brown egg.  However, as an adult who enjoys cooking shows I never saw white eggs ever being used.  So after reading an article in a magazine about how the cost difference between white eggs and organic brown eggs is nominal,… MORE

About this Cook
My eating/cooking style has been influenced by my family and my travels. Raised by Marylanders, I have an inherent appreciation for seafood and Old Bay.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes and learning how to cook food from different regions of the world. As a spiceophile, I love spicy, bold flavors. In my book, the hotter the better! I am constantly searching for new ways to infuse exotic vibrant flavors into what I eat.
My cooking triumphs
As a beginner, I am still estatic when anything I make is something I also enjoy eating.
My cooking tragedies
The word tragedy conjures images of severe mishaps that don't seem quite on par with missteps in the kitchen. That being said, I have endured the disappointment and frustration of recipes gone horribly awry, as I'm sure all of us have. Below are a few of my adventures: 1. On one ambitious afternoon, I decided to make home-made Chicken Noodle Soup. I spent hours making a stock, carefully nurturing all the savory flavors out of my chicken and vegetables only to have the pot slip from my hands on transit from the stove and go pouring all over the kitchen floor. 2. In a recent quest to find healthy recipes, I ignored my better judgment when the recipe called for ornate amounts of lemon and ended up with a linguine that tasted more like girl scout cookies then savory Italian fare. 3. My first attempt at an apple pie ended disastrously when I realized after the pie was made that the shortening I had used had in fact gone bad and the whole pie was ruined.

Jalapeno Popper Spread
This dip is delicious! Just like eating jalapeno poppers. I added habaneros and more jalapenos to make it even spicer.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
This recipe was easy to follow and had incredible flavor! Next time I think I will add cayenne or chili peppers for some heat. Will definitely be making this recipe again.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
