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.

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.

Big Ray's Tropical Island Chicken
Really nice marinade! I was a bit shocked at the amount of marinade this made but I think it was because my limes refused to give me a decent amount of juice, despite coaxing! I made 6 chicken thighs. Husband undercooked it quite a bit on the grill, but the chicken I had before it went in for more cooking was very good! Husband even commented on how good it tasted. Unfortunately we didn't get to have the chicken as planned due to the cooking issue, but I tried some of the cooked part. Yum! Thanks! Will be making again (and cooking longer on grill).

Perfect Marinated Chicken Breasts
Quite good. Marinaded overnight. Chunked up my chicken for kabobs. Upped garlic powder. When threading kabobs I cut up zucchini, summer squash, onions and mushrooms. Poured some reserved marinade over then basted with it while grilling. Note- I reserved marinade right after mixing it up and put 3/4 of it with chicken and rest in container in fridge for my veggies. Great taste on kabob veggies and meat.
