How NOT to Fry Chicken
About this Cook
I love gardening and cooking was the next natural step. I have no problem with spending 3 hours in the kitchen every night. I enjoy it! I work mainly nights now and as much as I love it it's a drag to only be able to really cook a couple of nights a week...
My favorite things to cook
For some reason I get the most satisfaction out of making soups from scratch. I also love putting together a gourmet grilled veggie sandwich. I just love cooking what I grow. Mexican fits the bill beautifully!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in a small family and we really didn't cook elaborate meals very much - maybe because I was such a picky eater as a kid!
My cooking triumphs
Grilled mahi mahi - Yum! FINALLY learned how to make GOOD salsa!
My cooking tragedies
Baking, in general. I enjoy baking but just don't seem to have what it takes.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Good! Moist & yummy but a bit heavy on the cloves - my three year old ate them and I'm inclined to give 'em five stars just for that!

Pumpkin Butter
Per other reviewers I cut the ginger in half, and subbed apple sauce for juice (x2). This is so easy and delicious! I've spent big bucks on this stuff and will be making my own from now on : )

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding
Awesome - my first bread pudding and first attempt at at water bath - awesome! Added 1 extra banana and 1 additional egg and used hot dog buns (after some research). Out-freaking-standing! This will become a holiday recipe and I thank you much for sharing it : )
