About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
* Pasta...there are endless combinations. * Fish and seafood. I could live on the stuff. * Anything that is usually boring that I can successfully turn into something surprising.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom making home-made banana nut bread, pound cakes and gingerbread for me! I stink at baking and she's the best. My friends still talk about the high school slumber party at my house during a snowstorm and the peanut butter blossom cookies she made us. Another family tradition was walking in the back door Sunday afternoon after church and smelling the roast, potatoes and carrots that Mom made. The last, and perhaps my favorite, is my Dad doing the dishes on Sunday afternoons while Mom and I got to sneak off and take naps. :)
My cooking triumphs
My most complimented (and requested) meals: * Spaghetti and meatballs * Lasagna * Shepherd's pie * Corned beef * Creamy white chicken chili * Cheddar chile cornbread * Grilled salmon w/ tropical salsa * Pineapple-glazed halibut * Key Lime pie * It's boring, but my husband loves my salads -- I put everything but the kitchen sink in there.
My cooking tragedies
Buttnernut squash soup -- I followed the recipe, but it was taste at all and a huge waste b/c I kept adding stuff to try and make it better. The only redeeming thing was that I was sad so my hubby took me out to dinner!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce
Wow! I have been cooking Indian food for the past few years and this is one of my favorite recipes. I only made a few small changes...I marinated the chicken for several hours in the fridge in a mixture of plain Greek yogurt, Garam masala, turmeric and curry powder. Then after cooking the onion and garlic, I added the chicken/yogurt mixture and cooked it in the same pan. After a few minutes I added the tomato sauce and finished the recipe out as written. AMAZING!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya
Wow, this is really good and super easy. Didn't have celery on hand, but I don't like it much anyway, so I didn't miss it. Other than that, the spices are perfect and everything turned out great. Yay for leftovers the next day! Thanks, Colleen!

Zesty Hominy and Cheese
This was a good recipe. I reduced everything a little, as I only used two cans of hominy -- I did one white and one yellow to make it a bit more visually interesting. The only other small changes I made were to add some garlic powder and used diced jalapenos instead of green chiles. Great side with enchiladas as a nice change from rice or beans! Thanks!
