About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Soups - hot and cold. Not to DH's liking, he's not a soup fan, so I make them for myself.
My cooking triumphs
Made a cake for my daughter's wedding. Lovely!

Smucker's Chicken Salad with Wild Rice, Pecans, Grapes and Orange Dressing
Basically I used this recipe as a template, cutting it drastically to serve 2. I did not us any rice, plus I had pre-cooked chicken on hand. Used most of the prescribed ingredients, except the vinegar. I substituted some mayo in the dressing in lieu of vinegar, (my husband has a huge aversion to vinegar). All in all, it worked out quite well. I served the salad @ room temp in raddichio cups, garnished with basil and parsley. A nice cool salad for a warm evening!

No Roll Pie Crust II
With temps in AZ, I'd chill this for awhile in the fridge after mixing. (Done 5/12/08). Takes some pressing, but it filled a 9" pie pan with this "dough." BOTTOM LINE: Made a mix of classical Quiche Lorraine filling consisting of 3 eggs, onions, herbs, plus some good Black Forest ham, diced. Unfortunately this ain't no Paté Brisée!!! Nevertheless, in a crashing hurry, it works, and it tastes pretty good!
