My Chicken Milano
About this Cook
Not much to say. I grew up in a sugar free, fat free, cholestral free, sodium free, kosher and vegetarian household. I recently got a place of my own so now I have the freedom to cook anything I want. I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I have this amazing marinade I concocted myself with mustard, soy sauce and a few other things. I love making steak in it! I also love making deserts and...oh who am I kidding, if I have the recipe and ingredients, I'll cook anything and say it was my favorite. It's all so much fun!
My favorite family cooking traditions
None. See my about me section. My father's idea of fine cusine was his stir fry. His definition of stir fry? Grab all the leftovers in the fridge that are under a month old, stir together in a pan and serve. Ew.
My cooking triumphs
I made an incredible cheesecake. I wanted to take a picture but it had a small crack and...well I'm a wiz at photoshop. I knew if I photographed it I'd only photoshop the imperfections out.
My cooking tragedies
I can't seem to make potato salad! I'll boil the potatoes for hours and when I cut them up, they're still rock solid! The last time I made an attempt, my salad was crunchy.

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies
These things are dangerously easy to make, especially when you take the easy route and use a box mix for the brownies.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken
This was fantastic and easy to make! I didn't have cumin, so to give it the Mexican feel, I added taco seasoning instead. I happened to have some queso in my fridge, so before I put on the salsa and cheese, I put a thin layer of that on. I served it with a small dollop of sour cream and it was fantastic! My husband enthusiastically told me I should make this one of my standard dishes and that his family (who loves "safe" recipes) would absolutely love it.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese
I have been making this recipe for almost a decade now and it has made me a hit at parties. People request this from me. I misplaced the recipe a few years ago and frantically went through dozens of recipes until I found it again. Why the desperation? I have NEVER tasted any other mac&cheese recipe that comes close to tasting like this. It is a uniquely rich experience. If you like the homestyle mac and cheese bake (instead of the creamy type) I cannot recommend trying this enough.
