About this Cook
I have been trying to expand my cooking skills by trying new things. I am very pleased by the progress I have made.
My favorite things to cook
Sunday morning breakfast and anything that excites my fiance.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents making "impossible butter cream candy" together. It's the only time my father is ever in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
Taking a very time consuming recipe and finding a quicker (and better tasting) way to make it.
My cooking tragedies
Tres Leche's cake is my "white whale". I don't know why I can't get it to turn out right. Also the time I was cooking with whiskey and singed the cabinets above my stove.

Salisbury Steak
So good! Comfort food at its finest. I added sliced mushrooms to the sauce and it was perfect. This recipe would be amazing with mashed potatoes. Yummy!

Simple Lemon Chicken
I'm always looking for low calorie, yummy and easy ways to prepare chicken and this recipe hit the mark on all three. I didn't have cornstarch so I used flour. I served the chicken with cous cous and broccoli. The sauce was so good I went back for seconds and poured it over the cous cous. I recommend trying this recipe.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili
The pros for this recipe are it is super easy to make with few ingredients and is low calorie, high protein, high fiber. The only draw-back is it is a little overkill with the black beans. It may just be a personal preference but I think this recipe could be improved by substituting one can of black beans with another kind of beans. I will try with garbanzo beans next time.
