Chicken Marsala II
About this Cook
I'm nothing exciting... I just love to cook and eat :)
My favorite things to cook
I couldn't narrow it down.. I enjoy almost all food, and I love cooking/baking stuff that I enjoy eating (no brainer!). I like trying new recipes, which is why I love this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any cooking "traditions". My mom is not a big cook, but myself and 2 younger sisters enjoy cooking/baking together for holidays. My parent's have it good, I tell ya!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving 2007, I had about 10 friends over for dinner. I cooked everything all by myself, in my small little apartment (1 oven!). The turkey (which I brined the night before), homemade stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes...the works. And to my surprise, it all turned out really (not to toot my own horn... but I mean *really*) good!
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger I tried to make a chicken casserole and didn't cook the chicken thoroughly before I put it in the casserole. Needless to say, that dish went in the trash.

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties
This was super quick and very good on the salmon burgers we had last night. Per other reviews, I used a little less flour (3 tsp) and it was still plenty thick (very good)! I added a little more lemon juice than called for and also added about a Tbls each of lemon zest and fresh dill. Thanks for the great recipe. Will definitely make again!

Easy Granola Bars
These bars were great! SOOO easy and versatile! I toasted the almonds and coconut and put peanut butter in place of the butter. Took them camping last weekend, and they were a hit! Thank you for awesome recipe :)

Curried Coconut Chicken
This was excellent! I used about 3 Tbs red curry paste instead of the powder and added a spoonful of roasted red pepper paste to it. I used a couple spoonfuls of tomato paste instead of the stewed tomatoes and sauce. The ending result was a rich, thick, spicy sauce that we really enjoyed. I didn't add sugar, but added a little fresh grated ginger and used lite coconut milk.
