About this Cook
My husband, boys and I live in California and love to try out different recipes, types of food, and restaurants. I started cooking on a more regular basis when I got married and I have found it to be one of my most enjoyable hobbies. I use Allrecipes.com almost daily. I usually only review what I consider to be a 5 star recipe. I'm not very good at photography but do take pictures of most of my endeavors! :) Find me at: https://www.facebook.com/ninjainthekitchen
My favorite things to cook
I am known for my salads and desserts...I'm always asked to bring them to dinners or potlucks. I like most things to be homemade...dressings, salsas, breads, etc. Store bought just doesn't cut it anymore. I enjoy cooking most things and experimenting but warm, homemade bread with butter makes my heart smile!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a lot of cooks in my family. My sister owns a small, successful restaurant, Side Street Cafe in Costa Mesa, CA, and all of my brothers like to cook. We have a lot of great family recipes and we always cook for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Desserts, salads, and homemade breads.
My cooking tragedies
I'm TERRIBLE at cooking chicken dishes. I always overcook so I end up buying Rotisserie chicken for my recipes.

Candied Kielbasa
I found this last minute (not enough time for the crockpot) and decided to use it as a marinade for our grilled kielbasa. It was amazing. I used 2 lbs. of kielbasa and cut the sauce ingredients in half, since we were just basting it. Served it over rice with grilled veggies and pineapple. It is our new favorite!

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad
Followed the recipe exactly except I left out the chicken. This was more of a side dish to go with our main meal. We really enjoyed it. I served it cold (I thought it tasted better after a few hours in the fridge than when straight off the stove) and next time I would try peanuts with it instead of almonds. Very flavorful!

Lime Bars
Delicious. If I were making these for company, I would have followed the recipe exactly. But it was just for my own family, so I cut the sugar back to 1 1/2 cups (in the lime mixture) and just lightly dusted with Powdered Sugar (instead of the glaze.) I also only used 1 1/2 sticks of butter in the crust (versus 2.) My husband said they were to die for! Great recipe.
