About this Cook
My name is Candace, I'm 28, and married to an Army CPT, Steve. We are expecting our first little on in March 2011! I love photography and spend a lot of time documenting my cooking and baking dishes.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make a lot of desserts, especially cheesecake, and chicken dishes. I'm experimenting in different cuisines--most recently Moroccan since I got a tagine :o)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom cooked almost every meal growing up--traditional holiday meals always include some sort of Chinese dish.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving spread in 2008 entirely from scratch included brining a turkey, apple & sage stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, cranberry sauce, kugel, the Schwab fruit salad, acorn squash, zucchini cornbread casserole, green beans & carmalized onions, apple & pumpkin pie. I've also cooked an kosher Passover spread complete with turkey and matzo stuffing.
My cooking tragedies
Nothing major as of yet--just small things like curdling cream (wasn't watching it)

Butternut Squash Kugel I
This was delicious! I made this for Passover substituting 1/2c potato starch for the flour. I also used a whole butternut squash that I had laying around. It was a big hit at dinner and this will be a staple for every big holiday meal!

Old Fashioned Potato Kugel
This is great! I made this for Passover and substituted some celery root so it was about 50/50 with the potatoes. It helps cut down the glycemic index and also adds vitamin K, not to mention some great flavor. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a tee and it was a hit!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Excellent flavor! I used this recipe for 2 whole cut up chickens cut into 8 pieces each for Passover. Since they were cut up, I did not use an onion and stuff the cavity, but seasoned the chicken as described in a gallon sized bag. I let the chickens marinate in the flavors for about 1 1/2 days and roasted them for an hour before serving. They got RAVE reviews!
