About this Cook
I am a geriatric Occupational Therapy Assistant living in Salt Lake City. I am newly married and excited about the future. I cook at least 5 times a week for my husband and whoever else will let me. I really enjoy cooking, its therapeutic for me. I loved cooking with my mom when I was growing up, but I always learned more from cooking with my dad.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything spicy! I will try anything once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Me and my husband always make breakfast together at least one weekend morning. We also make it a point to sit down and eat together each night of the week.
My cooking triumphs
I love to experiment with new recipes, and I have gained a lot of confidence because of it. I have mastered a handful of "Cortney Signature" dishes that are often requested at get togethers and dinners with friends.
My cooking tragedies
Baking is not my strong suit. I will continue to try to master this area.

Beer Roasted Lime Chicken
This chicken was good, but not terribly flavorful. I rubbed the chicken inside and out with a paste of crushed garlic, fresh lime juice, salt and pepper. It had to cook much longer than and hour and a half - in fact, closer to 3 and a half hours. BUT - I will probably make it again because it was fairly easy and tasted just as good as a rotisserie chicken bought from the supermarket.

Crustless Spinach Quiche
I was looking for a healthy meal to make tonight and came across this recipe. I added some fresh asparagus and ham cubes that I already had in the fridge. I also used parmasan cheese and only used half of what the recipe called for. It came out beautifully and it was delicious. Even my burger loving boyfriend enjoyed it
