About this Cook
I am trying to eat very clean right now, but one day a week I allow myself to indulge. I love simple recipes. My biggest challenge is to find recipes that are healthy where I can use as many fresh ingredients as possible, but still have enough flavor to satisfy my husband.
My favorite things to cook
Dessert- I save them for my day to indulge. They never turn out as good as I hope but as long as I can lick the bowl I'm happy with the results!
My cooking triumphs
Dirt Cake and whole wheat scones. Oh yeah, my first thanksgiving feast all by myself!
My cooking tragedies
My two biggest faults that I am still ironing out is that I leave out ingredients or don't measure if I don't have them handy, or walk away from the stove to multi-task--good thing my husband is always close by!

Chicken with Tomatillos and Poblanos
I've always wanted to make something with tomatillos, and with all the great reviews, this is what I tried. I loved all of the fresh ingredients, but took a lot of time to prepare. This dish had good flavor, but didn't stand out as something I had to make again.

Jerre's Black Bean and Pork Tenderloin Slow Cooker Chili
I used my husbands last bottle of beer (Amberbach) to make this and luckily he loved it. He even joked that he "stocked up" for next time I wanted to make this. I used a green pepper instead of red because that's what I had, and I topped it with mexican blend cheese. Yum!

Irish Boxty
I doubled the batch and made about 10 large pancakes. It did take a long time to make if you don't have instant mashed potatoes around, and mine were a little thicker than in the restaurant we had them in. We served them with a curry dish and got great reviews.
