About this Cook
I'm a wife who loves to cook but has trouble coming up with her own recipes. I love to take the recipes I find online and tweak them to my tastes.
My favorite things to cook
For everyday meals I like to cook chicken and fish. For special occasions, my favorite main course is lamb!
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger I tried to cook my first meal- spaghetti. I forgot I had the pasta on the stove and ended up turning it to mush!

Broccoli with Rigatoni
After following the recipe, the dish was pretty bland. It needed quite a bit of salt and pepper to add flavor. It's a great base recipe though, and it would be good with various types of veggies and herbs.

Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze
Simple and delicious! The only changes I made were that I used bone-in loin chops, and had to substitute herbes de provence for the rosemary (it's just what I had on hand.) It also took a bit longer than stated for the sauce to reduce down. My slightly-picky husband said that he thought it was just a bit too "tangy" at first so maybe I'll cut down on the vinegar next time. Other than that, perfect!

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary
Simple to make, yet elegant and delicious. It made me seem like a better cook than I really am!
