My family is from the Omaha tribe, and I treasure our all natural, resourceful roots. I cook traditional food with a healthier twist.

My favorite things to cook
Holiday meals. Even more interesting than what I like to cook is what I like to eat: My dad's fried chicken, my mom's lemon meringue pie, my neighbor's top sirloin steak,my grandma's red enchilada's, my aunt's green enchiladas, my other aunt's tai chicken soup, my other aunt's beef jerky, my other aunt's salsa, my other aunt's wine cake my son's cookie dough frosted cookies and any other food made by a child. Well, pretty much any food made by a child.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Snack time when my son comes home from school.
My cooking triumphs
I was vegetarian until I was a teenager and didn't eat red meat until I was 19. At the time, I was cooking at a gourmet, vegan restaurant. Once I discovered how delicious red meat tastes(an Arby's roast beef sandwich) I added meat to my diet. Learning to decently cook meat has been a long series of small triumphs.
My cooking tragedies
Learning to decently cook meat has been a long series of small disasters.
