About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love making rich and hearty soups, and using my slow cooker to the maximum once the cold weather starts to hit. I recently found a love over the summer of using my bbq to make delicious flat breads and grilled pizzas. I enjoy baking and am currently getting interested in trying my hand at some candy making.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are both wonderful cooks, but my father is the most interested in it now, during his "Golden Years". One of the best tips I learned from my father is never be afraid to alter a recipe, tweak it to your own standards (or whatever you have on hand at the time) and trying something again if it didn't work out the first time.
My cooking triumphs
I can make an awesome homemade pasta sauce and meatballs. Don't ask for the recipe though because there isn't one. Friends have asked me how I make my sauce and it's never anything I can put down on paper. I watched my mother and father do it all my life, and I just go with it.
My cooking tragedies
Anything having to do with making my own dough or bread. I just have never had a knack for working the dough. It either comes out too tough, or underdone. That's why I love those "done for you" pie crusts at the store. I think working the dough is an art form only some people posess. I'm not one of those people.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
I use a lot of bottled teriyaki sauce when grilling. Never even once thought of making my own. I came across this recipe and tried it. Not only was it simple, but the flavor is out of this world. Nothing you can buy in a bottle. I've been using this recipe for quite awhile now and will never buy a teriyaki sauce again. This is perfect, easy, and I always get compliments and requests for the recipe whenever I serve it up.

Chicken Francese
I gave this one star but truthfully would have given it no stars if possible. I'm not sure how this recipe actually turns out because I never even made it. Sounds like it might be good. I gave it 1 star because this is NOT Chicken Francese. CF is not made with cream. You bread chicken in flour, salt and pepper, than lighlty brown in butter. To that you add chicken stock and lemon juice and gently sauted the sauce. There are no onions, cream or parmesan cheese in Chicken Francese. I would call this "Creamy Chicken" maybe, but it's not even a close relation to an actual Chicken Francese recipe.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers
We made these a few weeks ago after we found ourselves with so many Jalapeno peppers in our garden. They were excellent!! The only change we made was using Panko instead of regular bread crumbs. They gave these an excellent crunch! Great recipe!
