Ok, so this blogging this is all new to me.  It's a little scary, I must admit. Anyhow, I was fortunate enough to be chosen as an allstar in October, and then extra fortunate to receive the Reynolds campaign this month.   I have been using Reynolds products forever, and two of  my favorites… MORE

About this Cook
I live in Upstate NY with my 13 year old daughter and husband. My husband started as an over the road truck driver this past year, and it's been a little lonely. I work full time as a mental health therapist, social worker by education. I have been married about 4 years. Since meeting my husband my cooking skills and interets has developed quite a bit. My ex hated food and said if he could have lived by taking a pill alone he would have (instead of eating). So opposite of me. Anyway, my husband loves to try new foods and is open to new recipes. My daughter is growing more picky as she hits the difficult teenage years. So much fun! My husband and I occasionally enjoy cooking together. I am a total animal lover. I have two cats and two boxers.
My favorite things to cook
I like to use my my slow cooker. I think it is so awesome to come home after a hard days work to dinner already made. I like to bake as well, but am have to admit being very fearful of baking anything with yeast. I tend to make at least one new recipe a week to keep things interesting around here. I tend to make a lot of "comfort food" types of dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am Jewish and so I love the Jewish foods.... but have to admit that I don't know how to make most of them. Grandma is still alive and well, but never really taught me how to make Matzo Ball soup, kugel, or other Jewish treats. Boo hoo. I used to love it when my mom would bake homemade cheesebread and homemade soup for dinner. To this day, she says she doesn't know how she made all those homemade meals and "from scratch" dishes while working full time and raising two kids.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a truimph when I make dinner and they praise my cooking. My daughter is so picky at times, and things she used to love now will complain about eating. So, anytime someone in this house says they really like something, it feels wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
Thank god haven't had too many. I know when I was a kid (my mom loves to tell this story), that I made cookies with 1/2 cup of salt instead of a 1/2 teaspoon. Ha! She said she felt bad, so she tried to eat one anyway.

Rice Elena
Absolutely delicious! Didn't change a thing, and won't next time either! This dish is mild (which is great for me) but still has that great chili flavor. Also great dish because it lends well as a side dish for many types of entrees. I served as a side to pork steaks and asparagus. Husband and I both ate way too much!

Lemon Cranberry Muffins
Well, I did alter this recipe, so if that annoys you stop reading. I reduced sugar to 1 cup. I decided to add half a clementine that I lightly pureed in my food processor to the batter. Since I did this, I reduced the milk/lemon juice mixture just a tad. Used the same clementine to made a tangerine sugar to top the muffins with. I zested it into turbinado sugar, mixed well, let sit for a bit, then topped muffins with it before baking. These are fabulous muffins. Light and fluffy! (I found they only needed about 15-16 minutes- so watch your baking times).

Moist Chocolate Muffins
Delicious. Light and even kind of flaky, Fabulous chocolate taste. Made few alterations used sour cream instead of yogurt,, since I was out of yogurt. I used 1/4 cup strong coffee and 1/4 milk. Coffee brought forth the chocolate flavor. And added about 1/2 t. salt to dry ingedients, as I rarely made a baked good that doesnt include at least some salt, Stellar muffins! And very pretty too!
