Summer 2008 Cookout
About this Cook
I am a stay at home dad that works two jobs from home. There are many times that I have to cook things that are quick and easy. However, I really enjoy cooking large meals, party planning, and gourmet foods. I have always loved being in the kitchen since I was a kid and helped my mother.

Stuffed Tomato Basil Chicken
Everyone loved this recipe and it was so easy to make. My wife said it was restaurant quality. Definitely a keeper! I didn't have fresh Parmesan cheese so I used grated, which didn't melt as much. Next time I will use fresh Parmesan cheese.

Warm Apple Buttermilk Custard Pie
This was a bit time consuming to make, but well worth it! I used another recipe on here (Aunt Ruth's Pie Crust) for the pie crust. I doubled the recipe to make two pies. However, when I put the apples in and the custard, it did not fill the pie shells. This was because I had used deep dish pie pans. I ended up adding more apples to the mix and it did rise a little before I put the crumb mix on. I would suggest that you double the apple part of the recipe if using a deep dish pan. The flavors of apple and custard complimented each other very well and it was like eating two desserts at once! I will definitely save this one for future holidays!

Old Fashioned Apple Cake
I was a little concerned when making this because the batter was so thick. However, I was pleasantly surprised when it came out. I cooked it in a bundt pan and it looked picture perfect. Everyone loved it and I particularly loved the added flavor and texture of the coconut. It was also more moist than the apple bread that I made the week before from another recipe on here. The glaze wasn't what I expected, but tasted sweet. My wife was expecting a glaze that was more white such as one made from confectioners sugar.
