About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Honestly, my mother can't cook a lick. And my Grandma made everything with Lard, or bacon grease...always tasted awesome, but was major cause of being quite overweight!! But that could explain why my secret ingredients are cream cheese, sour cream, or bacon...anything with any of those items HAVE to be fabulous!

Dave's Mocha Chicken
My 10 year old son says "so awesome, bestever chicken thing ever in the world". So there you have it. I did not think it was salty AT ALL, one reviewer mentioned cooking sherry was salty (I have no clue)...but I did use the Merlot I was drinking a few days prior (leftover!), threw in a tablespoon of minced garlic (We love garlic), and instant coffee granules. I cut breasts into nugget size pieces, served over rice. A mellow flavor...nothing harsh or overpowering, if you want something punchy, this is maybe not for you. But it's a good base to start with...then kick it up yourself

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole
If you don't like spice, don't make something with "spicy" in the title!! Spice can be controlled by cutting back or not adding the last few spices!! **I needed this to go further, so I added an extra cup of rice and an extra cup + of broth. **I had a few cups of basmati rice and used this, I cooked in pan about 15 minutes, and oven cooked for only 30 minutes and IT WAS DONE! I added a little more moisture, because I added extra rice too...and it was moist and wonderful - maybe the lighter weight basmati rice was the key to not having to overcook it. **my hubby melted a little processed cheese that starts with a "V" and that was WONDERFUL - I could do without the extra calories however!

Raspberry Kielbasa over Cheese Grits
ALright, I will say the recipe does sound bizzare, but how soon do we forget the KEY ingredient in cocktail little smokies, or even cocktail meatballs is GRAPE JELLY. Why would this be any better/worse? Certainly it was WONDERFUL with the kielbasa. Be careful with the type of sausage you chose-(did not like with maple sausage), but with "normal" smoked kielbasa was great. I used two kinds, it was what I had. As we gobbled...it really reminded me of the little smokies served for appetizers...why not just throw out the grits and use this for your next appetizer?? I could take or leave grits...I'm a northerner, harder to find here anyway.
