About this Cook
I am a purist and believe that processed foods are bad for your overall diet. Too many calories and unwanted fillers. I try to make as many things from scratch. Since that requires alot of time, I cook in large batches and freeze for later. This allows me time to make my own breads, stocks, and sauces.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment. I usually start with a recipe but amend it to my own tastes and pantry availability. New techniques never scare me. In fact, I love the challenge! I have only one rule...Never try a new recipe for guests. Always experiment on my family first. I have to admit, I have made plenty of "mistakes". I love all types of cuisine and will try anything once. I can't think of a single food I don't like. It's all good!

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad
I love curry and this was a wonderful idea. I made this a lowfat version by adding only half of the mayonnaise and substituting the other half with nonfat yogurt. Yogurt goes great with curry, so it's a win/win all around. I had no grapes or apples, so dried apricots became my fruit of choice. Staying on the lowfat theme, I left out the nuts and added more celery. Can't wait to have more leftover chicken!

Leftover Chicken Croquettes
This is a great idea for leftover chicken. I spiced it up a bit for my tastebuds by adding sundried tomatoes, pepperoni, and oregano. I added plenty of eggs and let sit overnight. The patties stayed together nicely when frying. The trick is to shred the meat, do not chop.

Microwave Corn on the Cob
Why shuck the corn? I microwave my corn in the husks. The husks act just like the plastic wrap and they will keep the corn hot for quite a while. Also, the corn is easier to shuck after it's been microwaved. The silk just slides right off!
