About this Cook
I'm a 33 year old (omg!) married mother of 2 preschool boys. My biggest struggle is to find meals that are healthy, easy and which all 3 of my men will eat. It's harder than Chemistry - seriously!
My favorite things to cook
spicy peanut chicken (Betty Crocker cookbook) Chicken Ceasar Salad Aunt Janine's Chicken Bake (I'll put it up later!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom make's a mean lasagna. My Grandma made the best bread in the world. My husband's family makes parogies and cabbage rolls from home soured cabbage *yum*
My cooking triumphs
I am not sure I have had many of these yet in my life *sigh*
My cooking tragedies
Once I tried to make raviolli for my family (I was 18 or 19) and a friend - it turned into some wierd soup because all the ravioli broke apart. The first time I tried to roast a chicken - I thought it would need a bit of water to steam it (don't ask me why) - I had my husband's parents over and we all ate what my husband now calls "lemon basil water chicken!)

Nutty Apple Crisp
OK - this is really, really good! I did substitute cinnamon for nutmeg because of my husband's strong dislike of nutmeg but would like to cook it again as suggested as I am curious as to how that turns out. Definitely the best apple crisp I have had.

Lemony Quinoa
An unusual flavor ..... unexpected and exciting! I really liked it - it is the first 'warm' quinoa recipe I have really enjoyed.

Really good - the kids love them, the husband loves them, I love them. I personally find them a little sweet for my taste, if I was cooking for myself I would decrease the sugar or honey.
