About this Cook
Newlywed on a budget. I use allrecipes.com to help plan meals for the week. I've been able to make our grocery budget (for 2 people) $50/wk. Yes I still have meats, seafood, and fresh veggies. We usually go to Aldis for groceries, then whatever I need that they don't sell we get from Meijer's. It take a lot of preplanning, but it's worth it and fun! My motivation besides the savings is keeping my husband out of the kitchen on days I work (he's a fabulous cook, but makes a big mess)...
My favorite things to cook
Stir fry, baking bread and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every New Years Day I have Pumpkin soup!
My cooking triumphs
Making the hottest hot wings my husband's ever had. :O) At some point I'll post the recipe. Also, Budgeting and keeping a clean kitchen (no matter what I'm cooking)
My cooking tragedies
Serving my then bf now husband a refried bean and feta cheese with egg and fish casserole. It smelt like garbage, but he still ate it. LoL I guess he really liked me :o) The dish was a result of my trying to translate my french cookbook measurements and all while also substituting many of the items with things that I had in my fridge. Needless to say I use english cookbooks now and almost always follow recipes to the letter.

Loved this dish. I added 4 tbs of white cooking wine and covered the eggs to cook it helped retain the sauce.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
Different, easy, and tasty. I slow cooked it and then broiled the chicken after it was slow cooked. I'll make it again soon!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
