About this Cook
2 years out of college and finally realized I cant survive my whole life on Lean Cuisines, so I photocopied my moms & my grandma's recipe books, found this site, and started cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I'm usually cooking for my two (female) roommates, so I tend to try to keep it healthy, bake/grill a lot of chicken breasts, make salads, rice or veggies. But once a week I cook for my 8 guy friends and then I get to make gravy (spagetti sauce to some of you) lasagna, meatballs, sausage & peppers and all that fun stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinner - but even better than that were sunday mornings when we got home from church and my mom was frying up the meatballs, we'd all eat meatballs outta the pan and drink soda at 11 am.
My cooking triumphs
made my own gravy the other day and a ridiculous amount of ziti & chicken parm - even the Boys couldnt finish it all, so the two days later i took the leftovers threw em in a pan, fried up some sausage and made the greatest lazy mans lasagana ever created. YEA it was that good!!!
My cooking tragedies
made sausage & peppers for some of my friends during the patriots game, everyone kept complaining about how hungry they were so i finally took the food out, and the sausage wasnt cooked all the way through. my friends still claim i was trying to poison them.

Quick Chili I
Such a great chili receipe! Easy to follow and tastes delicious! I thought it was a little soupier than I would've liked, next time I'll lessen the water or add some tomato paste. Also, I used red pepper flakes instead of hot sauce and made mine pretty spicy. Great sunday football watching meal!

Chicken Pot Pie I
This recipe is super easy, I changed a few things based on reviews, here is what I did, and what I would do differently next time: baked bottom crust (refrigerated pie crusts) 10 minutes at 350 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup 1 can condensed cream of celery soup 15+ ounces of mixed veggies (frozen) 2+ cups of chicken (pulled from rotisary chicken) 1/3 cup milk 1 teaspoon garlic powder salt & pepper to taste egg wash top crust cook about 45 minutes at 350 Looked great - tasted a little dry like this - next time I will def do the full 1/2 cup of milk maybe even closer to a cup - I don't like my chicken pot pie soupey, but this was def too dry. I will probably use canned veggies next time, probably bigger pieces of chicken too, but I think this is a great recipe for anyone trying to make their first chicken pot pie (this was mine and I think it was a success!!) Good luck!

Chicken Fried Chicken
all the positives I read in others reviews are all true - they were just like chicken fingers - breading didnt fall off the chicken as it usually does with fried chicken - DEF need garlic powder/poultry seasoning on the chicken before breading it, dont continously flip the chicken while frying it, i flipped each piece only once, the breading stayed on better this way GREAT recipe, tasted just like that greasy disgustlying DELICIOUS chicken you get at a diner. the boys loved it. thanks :)
