About this Cook
I'm an active mom of 4 and married the love of my life. I'm a full~time certified care giver, part~time food blogger @ http://the7upexperience.com , avid & obsessed novice photographer. I love allrecipes and pretty much an addict. I'm also a new member to Banana Belt Photography Club that's local to my community, and an Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador. And have stamped allrecipes on me for life. The site has opened up my eyes to so much more then just recipes. I'm proud to be a member of this site and my love, passion & learning other recipes from other valued members has really broaden my horizens.
My favorite things to cook
Asian, Mexican, Multi-cultured foods, Low-fat, Low-sugar, Stews, casseroles, slow cooker meals and baking......Everything!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Funny but true: Cooking traditions men sit in the recliner and women in the kitchen...lol My family is always in the kitchen. My sister and her family, my parents and my family celebrate Christmas in January. Due to distance and work related jobs. Every year we plan what we are having ahead of time. Our tradition is usually food we've had abroad growing up overseas. Normally with Asia influences. It's always a special treat when we normally don't make the dishes often throughout the year.
My cooking triumphs
Unknown to me when I came up with a chicken and dumpling recipe of my own, my father was floored & delighted and told me it tasted just like his mother's.......My mom dropped her jaw because it was better then her's. It's a staple with my husband and kids.
My cooking tragedies
I had found a recipe for a Pretzel Pie(like Pecan Pie), thought it looked good and I didn't follow the recipe when it said unsalted pretzels. I just grabbed the normal stuff with the salt on it, made the pie, and my dad and husband were painting with thrist. And making weird pickle sour expressions, when I realized the pie was over salted. Oopppss! I never made it again.

Blueberries n' Cheese Squares
This recipe was just okay. Needs some work. My crust didn't hold well cutting into squares, not one clean portion and flopped. I felt it needed to a few teaspoons of sugar added to the graham cracker crust and baked at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, then cooled. As is...it didn't work. The cream cheese layer was slightly off on the taste, needed to be sweetened a little more, so I added an additional 1-2 TBSPs of confectioner's sugar to balance it out. The blueberry pie filling was homemade from here and the whipped topping layer was just fine. Bake the graham cracker crust because if you don't, you're not going to get nice cut squares, as I had to put mine in parfait style bowls to make it easier for presentation for my family and guest on the 2nd batch.

Brownie Cheesecake Bars
Super easy to make. I was requested not to add the walnuts by the kids...which was fine. The recipe turned out quite nice, baked all the way through and evenly. My kids liked them very much. I topped some of the portions with the site's Kahlua Hot Fudge Sauce recipe and was quite good. And was asked if I'd make these again. Not a bad recipe to make when you want something almost at last minute but can't decide between cheesecake or a brownie...so I say, you can have both ;-) TY

Best Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce
This as such a nice treat enjoyed by my family. I made one with raisins and one without. The one with out, wasn't as pretty or plump like the one with raisins. I made the sauce twice as well. But the 1st time, it seemed a bit to brown for a vanilla sauce and the brown sugar was very prominent and stood out. It was quite nice but decided on the 2nd batch of vanilla sauce to cut the brown sugar to a 1/4th cup and used white granulated sugar for the other 1/4th cup...and it was perfectly vanilla-y where it needed to be ;-) other then that, it was excellent and the kids seem to really enjoy it. TY
