About this Cook
Moved back to Charlotte, NC from Fremont, CA in Feb 2011 after 2 years. Glad to be back; LOVE Charlotte, but I do miss the inexpensive, local organic produce!! The lettuce, grapes and strawberries in CA were amazing, but I wouldn't trade them for the peaches, watermelon and sweet corn here!
My favorite things to cook
Roast chicken is probably my all time favorite food. And a chicken always goes a long way - first the roast, then some chicken salad, then take the remaining meat of the bones and freeze it for pot pie or soup. Cook the bones for stock.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
Thank you Janet - whoever you are. This is the best banana bread we've ever had! Moist beyond belief but with a nice sweet crust. One early reviewer said she creamed soft butter & sugar together, rather than the melted butter called for. I agree - creamed butter & sugar is best. Aside from that, only change I made was to add 1TBS Meyer's Dark Rum (made another banana bread recipe that called for rum & liked it). This will be my go-to banana bread recipe and I might not even share it with my friends - just keep it as my little secret!

Egg and Sausage Casserole
I modified the recipe based on some other reviews. I made a smaller version in a 9x9 pan; used 5 egss, a bit of 1/2 and 1/2 and much less cheese - about a cup or cup and 1/2. I used a mix of 6 cheese Italian, mozzarella and a small amount of parmesan. I used about 1/2 tsp of oregano and it could have used a bit more. Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles made this a snap to put together. I love onions & peppers in almost any egg dish, so I sauteed some and added them. Agree the crescent rolls make this! Husband LOVED it and wants it in the regular weekend breakfast rotation.

Fresh Apple Cake II
Great recipe. Only change I made was to cut the recipe in half and bake in a 9x9 pan (there's only two of us) and I used a bit less sugar and substituted about 1/3 of it with brown sugar (wanted a more carmel flavor). Turned out wonderful and the house smells heavenly! Husband fighting urge for seconds. Try a litte whipped cream on it - Yum!
