I am writing this in shock from a phone call from back home that there was a death in my family. So please forgive me if this isn't the best blog. This month Allrecipes.com and Butterball teamed up for a promotion making Tuesday a Turkey Day. So another words every Tuesday in the month of… MORE

About this Cook
I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I really enjoy cooking, baking, grilling and trying new recipes. My husband and I love to travel and we are somewhat foodies. I like to try to recreate our favorite dishes from our travels or put a twist on recipes to suit my families taste. I like to add a little spice to our life and our food.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite things that I like to cook are Italian, Seafood, Thai and Baja Style mexican food. I love to bake and I am learning to decorate my baked goods better. Still learning there.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition would be Thanksgiving. What I love about this holiday is the whole family is all together and my daughter helps me in the kitchen. Also, the decorations and the smells of a bounty of good food. Good times.
My cooking tragedies
I guess one of the cooking tragedies I remember the most is when I added way too much cayanne pepper to a chicken pot pie recipe that I was trying for the first time.(I do like to experiment) Wow, that was tough to eat. Even my husband, who loves spice could barely eat it. He did eat it although he was laughing and shaking his head the whole time. LOL... I will never live that one down.

Thai Chicken Curry with Pineapple
We loved it. But I made some modifications so 5 stars with the changes. I used a bit more Green curry paste and added some onion, Serrano chili, garlic, Cilantro & Thai basil. We like it hot and I love the fresh herbs which I have in my garden, so I just had to use them. Great base recipe and will be using this one again. Tasted just like I used to get at my favorite Thai Restaurant in Los Angeles area. Yum!

Seared Scallops with Jalapeno Vinaigrette
I made these the other day and we loved them. Made as written except I added some Thai basil because I have too much of it growing in garden. It added a nice flavor to the dish. I will make these again soon. Definitely a keeper here. Thanks Chef John!

Grilled Chipotle Skirt Steak
This was very good. I added a bit of Sazon and it made the flavors really come together. I also added cilantro and a jalapeno. It was really good. I used a skirt steak. I marinated it with my vacuum sealer all day and the flavors really penetrated and were perfect.
