About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
I have catered events for the SCA that have been entirely historically accurate menues and once fed 260 people a 5 course meal out of a tent with only propane stoves and one BBQ. It was a great success. It was a norm to feed 20-30 people a gourmet meal in the winter from that same tent. I loved the challenge but do not miss the work.

Angel Hair Pasta with Peppers and Chicken
yes a little runny...and rather than using onion powder, since you are already slicing peppers I cut up half a sweet onion and cooked it w/ the veggies. Ads more flavor and ups the veg count. Save some of the pasta cooking water and spoon some in along with about half of the stock. It helps to thicken the "sauce" and make if cling to the ingredients better. Also...certainly don't need to EVER cook water chestnuts for 10 minutes...toss them in at the end.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Super easy crock-pot meal. I used Frozen boneless breasts from Costco and a can of Rotel, rather than the whole tomatoes and the green chilies. Just dice up the chicken when you get home. I leave out the Cilantro as that is a love-it-or-hate-it herb...and I HATE it. I found the broth a little thin the first time I made it, so I tossed in a handfull of crushed tortilla chips the second time. These break down and the Masa helps to give the broth a little more body for a great mouth-feel. Couldn't be simpler to toss it all in the crock before work and come home to a hot and tasty meal minutes after walking in the door. Makes the house smell heavenly and inviting after a long day and leaves plenty for the three of us to take for lunch leftovers. This will go in the regular rotation.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup
No real depth of flavor. I added onion, cumin and real chicken. I had to put it all in a pot, season it properly and simmer for another hour the next day...but then we live in AZ and have high expectations in our tortilla soup!
