About this Cook
I have been in the kitchen cooking or baking since I can remember. I love it! When I'm not in the kitchen I enjoy reading, knitting, exploring Florida wildlife, or just relaxing with sand between my toes watching my boyfriend catch some waves.
My favorite things to cook
I my true passion is baking, I love to create anything. Cooking I make a mean turkey, and have a killer pasta dish everyone seems to enjoy.
My cooking triumphs
Turkey! I remeber turkey always being dry and flavorless growing up. I tackled a Thanksgiving feast this year and everyone there said my turkey was flavorful and moist! WooHoo, I made a flavorful, moist turkey.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken
This recipe is delicious! I used a 5 pound chicken and it came out juicy and tender. No knife needed here, the meat just fell off the bone. This will make its way into my rotation of whole chicken dinners.

Canadian Maple Rice Pudding
Overall, a good take on Rice Pudding. I did make some changes to it though. I also used brown rice (that is all I stock in the pantry) and skim milk, I also used 1/8 cup of Splenda for Baking, and 1 Tbs and 1 tsp of organic amber maple syrup. It doesn't end there. I did have trouble getting the "custard" to thinken so I added an egg with the second addition of milk and spices, since I only had whole cinnamon sticks I stuck on stick in with the rice while it was cooking and left it until I put the pudding into dessert cups, I also added 1/4 tsp of ground ginger. Right before I removed from the heat I added 1/4 cup of chopped pecans (left over in the pantry) and 1/2 cup of raisins. After the mods I like the recipe. Next time I might ommit the sugar all together.
