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.

Chop Suey Cake
While this recipe had a great flavor, I'm on the fence with this. Batter was easy and simple and while it had a great flavor, from a piece I could taste. I couldn't believe how the batter soaked up the non stick spray I used to keep the cake from sticking to the pan as it cooked, totally went out the window and glued to the pan like I didn't use anything. I couldn't pry this out of the pan. No subtle way or approach worked to get a nice piece out of the pan. I looked like Lucille Ball from I Love Lucy involved in a comedy skit. By the time I tried, the cake was all over me and the countertop and it looked like a bomb exploded in my kitchen. Needless to say, a 2nd attempt was made and same thing happened, so I gave up after I had a few chuckles from my kids at my mess. There won't be a 3rd attempt but again what I could taste was nice.

Biscotti Dessert Cookies
Followed to a T. The batter was nice and formed into logs quite easily, however, not that flavorful for a biscotti cookie, rather bland and didn't have that sweetness either. Sorry I won't be making again.

Bishop's Bread II
Talk about a chunky monkey colossal of a bread. It's thick, dense, sturdy and full. We liked the bread but felt I could have decreased the amount of chocolate chips by 1/2 that it calls for. Loved the fact of mixing the milk, baking soda, vanilla and juice from the maraschino cherries together....what a neat science trick in the kitchen to show my youngest when it grew and foamed up. She thought that was pretty amazing. I will make again but would totally decrease the chocolate chips. Not that I don't love chocolate but the amount with all the other additions was so chunky that in spots where the chips settled, the bread fell apart and hands were covered in chocolate. Tastes great with a pat of butter smeared on to the slices when served. TY Another note, I used 3 smaller loaf pans. But will note, don't use large loaf pans...the batter wont' bake all the way through and will burn on the outside before it gets completely done. Smaller loaf pans and or muffin tins are better.
