I live in sunny Florida, although originally from the Northeast. Being in such a culturally diverse area has really opened my mind to both eating and cooking new flavors, textures and methods. I work full-time in a corporate environment, I am happily married and I have three beautiful children (and all of them are a tad on the picky side when it comes to food!).
Because I love to cook and yet have such a full schedule, I'm always on the prowl for recipes that are either 1)unique, fresh and quick or 2) can be made in a crockpot and don't taste like mushy meat/vegetable concoctions. The weekends are my time to experiment and bake special breads/muffins that can be enjoyed throughout the week.
My favorite food to cook/experiment with is Mexican/Southwest cuisine - I LOVE a hint of chipotle pepper - in marinades, sauces, salsas and even guacamole...yum! I really love all kinds of food and I'm definitely not a picky eater.
Please note that I am a bit on the stricter side when it comes to recipe reviews - see as follow:
*****Specatacular; a recipe that is a keeper that I will make again and again
****Recipe was really good but didn't knock me off my feet
***Recipe was eatable but will probably not make again
**Recipe just doesn't cut it.
*Yuck - threw it out because it wasn't eatable.
I am famous for my Pesto Salmon - it's so simple and yet everybody is always impressed (I discovered the recipe on the price/weight tag of some fresh salmon I had purchased at our local grocery store)! I also love serving Caprese Salad at dinner gatherings because it is both beautiful and lends itself to complimenting many different dishes. One of my favorite cakes to bake is Key Lime Cake (bundt) served with coconut ice cream - out of town guests always appreciate the Floridian touch.
My favorite restaurant of all time is a little hole-in-the-wall place called Las Fajitas in Boca Raton - it isn't fancy at all, but it's clean, the ingredients are so fresh, and the mole sauce is the best I've ever had - I wish I had that recipe!
