About Me
I am a working woman married to a wonderful man for over 20 years and mom to a yellow labrador retriever named Rosie. I took up cooking later in life to try to help my family to eat healthier.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook foods with lots of flavor which sometimes means spicy but not necessarily. I also like to use marinades to add flavor. We like Asian, Cajun, Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, and Southern dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up the kids generally did not participate in the cooking. My father did much of the cooking. Therefore, it was a lot of meat and potatoes. He made some excellent Texas style BBQ such as brisket and barbecue chicken.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a triumph if I can make a recipe healthier and delicious so my husband does not realize it is healthy. Some triumphs include my "Kickin' Turkey Burgers, Asian Lettuce Wraps, and Braised Balsamic Chicken from this site.
My cooking tragedies
I have made several attempts to make desserts, such as cake, healthier and have not had as much luck with many of these. Whole cakes have gone in the trash after only one serving.
