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.

Honey-Grilled Pork Chops
They were wonderful! I could have eaten two or even three of these babies! I marinaded all day. When grilled I love how they develop a little carmelization on them likely because of the honey. This is a winner for sure! Will be recommending this often, and making a lot this summer! (Btw- my teen ate two!)

Easy, No-Bake Nutella(R) Pie
Fabulous! I used about 1/2 cup cream, that I whipped up. Only added a little sugar to it so that I could control better how sweet the dessert was. OMG- decadent and perfect! Like several others I used a chocolate crust. Thank You Christina! Perfect pie!

Sweet Coconut Rice
Okay, but not a strong coconut taste. Made this in my rice cooker. I used the stated amount of sugar. I found that if I added some sugar on my rice at the table it bought out the coconut taste more. Not a bad recipe by any means, but I would want to play with it some more to suite our tastes. My teen didn't like it at all. A lot leftover.
