I live in Folsom, CA and grew up in the Los Altos, CA (South Bay Area).  I graduated from UC Davis in 2006 and got married last year.  My husband and I love to cook and we've been told we're pretty good at it too.  You can always expect big gatherings at our house, lots of bbqs, football parties, and poker nights.  I love finding new restaurants, recipes, and foodies.

Something uniqe about me:  I like just about anything "pickled", I've learned how to pickle my own veggies from our garden anything from cucumbers, green beans (good in bloody mary's), asparagus (my fav), carrots, and beets.  I like adding jalapenos and cloves of garlic for a different flavor.

I love sushi, seafood, steak, chips & salsa, dips, all kinds of veggies and colorful salads, fruit pies and cobblers.

Oh I sometimes add extra soy sauce or hot sauce at the end after it's been sitting in the fridge, just to taste. [I posted this recipe.] — Twinkles25 2/5/2010

When I first did this the oven I was using burnt the honey so use tin foil to line your baking sheet and keep an eye on them in the oven, too long and you'll ruin them. [I posted this recipe.] — Twinkles25 10/8/2009

This is great on salmon, only marinade for 30min - 1 hour then cook in the broiler until the fish has a nice glaze on it. [I posted this recipe.] — Twinkles25 8/10/2009
Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing

This had great flavor and I love all the herbs. I saved it and put it in the good seasons dressing jar to use again this week and I noticed it got thicker and the garlic flavor got more intense. I dipped some carrots in it for a snack since it seemed more like a dip then a dressing. I'm wondering what I could use to make the dressing a little thinner? — sgrishka 8/7/2009
