About this Cook
I'm a newlywed with a picky-eater husband...juggling my job and school; but still making time to cook delicious and healthy meals!
My favorite things to cook
Anything my mom makes (seriously, the worst part about being "grown-up" is not having my mom cook for me every night!) Vegetarian Indian Cuisine
My favorite family cooking traditions
BREAKFAST!! My family are serious breakfast people...give us a strata or a breakfast casserole and we are happy people!
My cooking triumphs
The first time that my husband said that something I cooked was "book-worthy"; i.e. worthy of making our personal recipe book. I made him a tamale pie and he just gobbled it up!
My cooking tragedies
Oh geez! Everything that I made when I was in college...I swear I lived on nothing besides Cup Noodles and grilled cheese!

Cheeseburger Soup I
I was skeptical about how well this recipe would come out but it was DELISH!! Even my hubby, who is a really picky eater, loved it. I made the recipe as written except with a little more onion.

Pakistani Spicy Chickpeas
This is one of my favorite veggie recipes. I usually add more of the spices ( but hey, I'm a spicy chick). Cumin seeds are frickin' DE-Lish! I take this for lunch at least once a week...

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares
This is one of my favorite appetizer recipes! I normally add finely chopped carrots to the veggies already listed (it gives a nice, sweet crunch). This is the recipe that my quilt group always requests when it is my turn to host.
