Oyster Stew
About this Cook
I love to cook for my family, friends and my kids' friends. While I was recovering from breast cancer surgery, I got to spend a lot of time trying out new recipes and inventing recipes for my family. I also learned to cook healthier for my family, while eliminating boxed/prepared foods from our diet.
My favorite things to cook
I love making Sunday dinner, especially when we have guest. We enjoy having something special at that time such as a roast smothered in gravy or corned beef with mashies! I enjoy making vegetable in a way that my kids will eat them too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite time in the kitchen is when my husband and kids pitch in with the cooking and setting the table, and of course helping with clean-up.
My cooking triumphs
Hearing my kids and their friends brag about what I fed them is my greatest triumph!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries
This is a great crispy fry. I watched the video of this recipe which tells you to add a cup of water to the flour mixture and to fry at 350 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes. I used a large pot of oil so I only spent half my time cooking. I thought that some more salt was needed after trying one fry, so I added some seasoned salt and ground pepper directly on the potatoes before dipping them into the batter - I think it brings out the flavor of the potato. I'm going to try the other reviewers ideas and add some garlic powder and cayenne pepper too.

Oyster Stew Christmas Eve Recipe
I agree it is colorful, you can leave out the red peppers, they were added for color for Christmas. Thanks for the reviews.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin
This was absolutely amazing - I couldn't stop licking my fingers. I took reviewers advice and made a gravy from some of the marinade. I saved some and marinaded some venison steaks - delicious! This was so good, I wanted to bath in it! Thank you! Update: made one with the gravy and one without, we really liked it much better without the gravy though. We threw the second one on the grill for 30 minutes - it was awesome! I am making this again today, but have decided to add some fresh ginger and we'll see how that goes.
