The Good Times

About this Cook
I am a mother of four, and also an artist and a teacher in Charleston, WV. My husband, Mike, is also a teacher.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment, so by the time I would write something in here, I would have a new favorite thing to cook. If I eat something and like it, chances are, I'm going to try to figure out how to cook it -- everything from ethnic foods to old family favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love traditional Mexican cooking. I love all the work that goes into it. Each dish is truly a work of art.
My cooking triumphs
I was asked to bring a meat dish to a cookout so I brought Indonesian Chicken Satay (from this website) to the party. I made the traditional peanut sauce but also made a variety of other dipping sauces to choose from. It was such a hit, I ran out and had to make more.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make hot pepper relish using some peppers my Mother-in-law gave me from her garden. The end result was something like napalm. The peppers were so hot, there was enough oil in the steam in the air that it burned my nose and eyes. Disaster!!!

Oven Fried Chicken III
Soooooo delish! I customized it for my kids by adding a spice mix they really like, and they inhaled it! This is my middle son's favorite thing EVER! I've made it a few times, and he goes wild whenever he smells the "fried" chicken! Oh, and I used lowfat mayo this time, and it turned out just fine.

Tuna Rice Puff
I love it! So did my kids, who usually don't like tuna. I can see where this recipe could easily be customized any number of ways. I can tell this will become a "go to" recipe! Delish! Thanks for sharing!

Asian Salmon Wrap
This recipe rocks! I had to make a couple changes to suit my family, so here's what I did -- The cucumber I bought at the store had a really bitter flavor (??? it looked fine!) so I substituted slices of avocado, instead. Instead of tossing the dressing with the avocado, I just put it in a squirt bottle and drizzled it over the wrap once I had it assembled. It was DELISH! My picky family loved it, and I love that this dish can be customized any way you want. I put out some of our favorite sushi condiments as well (pickled ginger, wasabi for the brave...) and everyone loved it. I can totally see turning this into a fun party appetizer, by making pinwheels with the ingredients. Sort of like sushi for those too chicken to try sushi! I had no problem with canned salmon. If you get a good quality salmon, it works just fine. It would be fine with grilled salmon, as well. Thanks for this recipe! This is definitely going into frequent rotation at my house!
