Making Anaheim Fish Tacos for my husband. Healthy, and brings back the taste of SoCal. I'm using Mahi Mahi instead if Halibut because it's... well... more available, and a classic for fish tacos. Tomorrow I'll be making these Oat Applesauce Muffins. MORE

About this Cook
Having grown up in California, lived in NY and now just moving to Michigan, my cooking is eclectic. I have Dutch parents and a Mexican heritage husband - so it even gets more interesting.

Indonesian food
My cooking triumphs
For a party of visiting family or friends, at times I prepare an Indonesian feast - always a big hit. Another triumph is watching my young daughter cook - she made tamales from scratch all by herself (I was not allowed in the kitchen) at 10! This year, we bought a smoking box, so smoked turkey was an achievement.
My cooking tragedies
I learned I was not a baker at 9 years old when I baked a coconut meringue pie for my mother. It looked absolutely beautiful but it tasted awful because I had substituted one ingredient I did not have. I learned then that cooking allowed me to be more creative and artistic.

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta
Thank you for a great recipe. Add 2 TBSP chopped Kalamata olives and 1 TBSP olive juice for acid balance. 2 more cloves of garlic is about right. Contrary to other reviews, DO NOT add salt unless you taste it first - there is plenty already in the feta. Great on a ridged whole grain penne. Cook pasta until 90% done and finish off when you add to the sauce.

Yucatan Potato Salad
I cut the oil down to two tablespoons and used olive oil instead. Instead of powdered mustard I used dijon because I ran out of powdered. I think the powdered would be better.. I used a tablespoon of pickle relish with two cut up pickled jalapenos - yum. The green olives give it that salty kick that is just inspired. Great idea!

Thai Noodle Salad
Absolutely excellent sauce. I turned out surprisingly well. I am sure the recipe was great as written but did some subs to use what I had on hand and turned out great. Instead of shrimp, I used my microwave pressure cooker on chicken 6 minutes in a teaspoon each of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil and thinly sliced and then cut into bite size lengths. Since I had "Excellent Flour Stick" - a quick boil noodle from the Philipines I picked up in a previous asian market spree - I used that. The "noodle" has coconut oil in complimenting the sauce. I used Mann Broccoli slaw instead of napa cabbage and mini salad multicollar peppers. I also used a teaspoon of sabal oelek instead of a sweet chili sauce and upped the brown sugar to a tablespoon and a half.
