About this Cook
I'm a Martha Stewart Wannabe - who can make chicken do the hula. :)
My favorite things to cook
We love experimenting with new flavors & tastes. Our favorite meals include anything BBQ'd, Indian, Eastern or Mediterranean. My husband loves to grill so I'm quickly becoming "Side-dish Girl".
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of comfort food - stews, soups, & salads from the "Old Country"
My cooking triumphs
Grilling a turkey - turned out fantastic!!! All the credit goes to the most wonderful husband & grilling master in the world... mine. (I did help with the prep).
My cooking tragedies
A lemon chicken stir-fry from Martha Stewart that asked for lemon rind - it turned out AWFUL!!!... could it be that Martha is not perfect??

Perfect Sushi Rice
The recipe was great. I was a little worried about the amount of liquids added, but it came out perfect. After reading one of the reviews I cut the sugar in half, but then ended up adding about a tablespoon more because the rice had too strong of a vinegar flavor. It probably would have been just fine with the full amount of sugar. I have saved this recipe and will definitely refer to it again. Thanks for sharing!

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding
This came out great - I had a TON of left over homemade challah bread and ended up throwing in a bit more (still have some left)and that seemed to take care of the undone problem that some reviewers have mentioned. Other than that, it came out great - I did it just as the directions said. And YES - it DID make my house smell AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I
These cookies taste good - however I would put in a little salt, maybe 1/4 teaspoon next time I make them - it might bring out the flavor a little more. Also, the baking time needs to be about 15 minutes, I made 4 dozen, so they weren't too big, but they did need a little more time in the oven. I would recommend these.
