About this Cook
First, about the name HomeSkillet. I thank my 14 year old son for that. I have been cooking ever since I can remember. Being the oldest with 4 brothers I was always in the kitchen with mom. Currently I am married and cook for my hubby and 3 children. I love to try new recipes and entertain friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to prepare Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings. From extravagant meals to simple fare. Whipping up a plate of nachos for the after school friends to preparing Prime Rib for a dinner party. I truly enjoy it all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone is a cook in my family from the afore mentioned brothers to Grama to my children. We love food and the way it brings family and friends together.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Followed the dry rub recipe exactly! Put the rub on bone-in chicken breasts and set in the frig overnight. Started roasting a bit late for dinner, so I used the convection setting at 325 for 90 minutes. They were moist and so delicious. Like another reviewer, my son also said that this was the best chicken I ever made...and I've made a lot of chicken! Keeping this forever!

Fluffy White Frosting
OMG! This is an incredible frosting! So easy too. I bake A LOT and this was so fluffy, creamy, light, and dreamy. I piped 24 cupcakes and sprinkled with tiny red and pink hearts for my daughter to take to high school for a friend's 16th birthday. Can't thank you enough. I'm sure I'll use this recipe again, and again, and again...
