About this Cook
As of 2009 I find myself as a 46 year old newlywed who has been transplanted from the "Big City" to "Smallville" U.S.A. LOL. I would not change it for anything. All of our children are grown and gone and it is just my hubby & I. I find it rather nice that we both enjoy cooking and hubby loves the fact that I am willing to try out so many new recipes. He never knows what I'll whip up for him next.
My favorite things to cook
Persian food. I learned the proper way to cook some of it when I was 16 years old and I make the best Basmati Rice & Tadik you would ever want to taste. During the Summer months I love using the slow cooker as it does not heat up the kitchen. I have to admit that the most fun I ever have is when I am cooking for others!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving would not be the same without mom's Oyster dressing, some turnip greens and a squash casserole! Christmas would be weird without my Brothers standing rib roast, or my Peach Schnapps glazed Ham & fresh baked bread.
My cooking triumphs
My Grandmother Griffin(God rest her soul) was the best cook in Candler county. Any & everyone who ever put a bite of her cooking in their mouth would vouch for that. LONG story short, as an adult I was able to cook supper for her. Nothing fancy, just a simple country meal. After she tasted everything she looked at me with both pride and amazement & told me I was a GOOD cook! She then ate every bite on her plate! She, to my knowledge, had never complimented anyone's cooking before! THAT was my biggest triumph.
My cooking tragedies
While Hubby & I were dating I wanted to cook him a tried & true Persian dish that I knew would knock his socks off. He had a flat top electric range which I had never cooked on before (I had a gas range) & I started sipping on a bottle of white wine. It was good wine. I sipped & sipped & ended up watching the news with him on the sofa. Then I smelt something that was not right! I had burnt everything. The chicken was ruined the rice was awful, & I was lit up like a Christmas tree. He thought it was funny & I was appalled. He/we ate what we could stomach and trashed the rest. It was the 1st time in over 20 years I had burned a meal. I have not done it since. And you better believe that I re-cooked that meal at a later date. Yep I did it on his stove, I left out the wine sipping and stayed in the kitchen and it was wonderful.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf
A big thank you to Sabrinatee for submitting this recipe. I did roast the asparagus first however a NOTE TO SELF will only do so next time AFTER the rice is cooking. Used chicken stock and not as much butter. Would be fine to use orzo but angel hair pasta is what I had and what I used. PERFECT! Saying that this tastes like rice a roni is insulting. I had it with the Fish with Maille (R) Dijon Originale from this site. It was the perfect side dish. 5 Star all the way! Will play with it with broccoli and almonds if I am in a pinch but tonight the asparagus and cashews were spot on! Made just enough for DH & I with a small amount of left overs for tomorrow. Will need to double if ...or shall I say WHEN I make this for company! No way it will serve 8!! as it stands. 4 yes 8 n0!

Fish with Maille(R) Dijon Originale Mustard
I hate it when people review a recipe without following it to the letter first, and yet this is what I am doing. I admit it, I cheated...so here it goes...based on reviews I tweaked it. I don't feel too bad about his as it was submitted by a company and not a "real person" I Seasoned the fish with a generic seasoning for pork or fish. Was going to use Lemon pepper but found out too late I was out! Perhaps this was a blessing in disguise? Mixed up some mayo with the country style Dijon Mustard and baked it without searing it first. Yes, I put dried parsley on the top. My only side was an Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf also from this site. The results were a 5* restaurant quality meal. No need for any tarter sauce or lemon juice or anything else. It stands on its own. I have made several fish dishes from this site but THIS ONE...OMG!! Easy to make, easy to bake, did not require any special ingredients that are not normally in the pantry or fridge. I can't stop raving about how good this was. Needless to say I will make this again. It just pushed my favorite standby fish recipe which I have been using for the past couple of years to the wayside!!

Tasty Spicy Rice Pilaf
Tried this last night. I modified to fit what I had on hand meaning I don't use instant rice. I only used 1/2 roasted red pepper, added 1 small zucchini diced. Did everything else according to instructions but threw it all in the rice cooker with the chicken stock to cook on its own. Was perfect with grilled salmon. Would go very well with shish kabobs or anything else really.
