Best baked chicken ever!
About this Cook
My name is Jeanine, I'm 25, and mother to a beautiful baby boy, Caleb. I've always truly enjoyed cooking and have been making this site very useful lately. It's great. Although I appreciate my wonderful Panamanian heritage, I have my own cooking style and love experimenting and trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies! Yet I definitely love stove top cooking. Indian inspired food is probably my favorite to put together. You can find me in the kitchen making anything from omelets, macaroni salad and shepherd's pie to bakes, curried squash and chicken soup!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Caribbean and hispanic dishes such as arroz con pollo, Mom's bakes, Grandma's banana fritters, and much much much more.
My cooking triumphs
Cutting a WHOLE CHICKEN into parts! This was triumphant for me since I hate getting messy with chicken and never did it before. It was perfect, and I made the best honey baked chicken and stuffing with it!
My cooking tragedies
RICE RICE RICE. I dunno. I used to be such a pro at cooking it, but lately I've been getting a mixture of undercooked, overcooked, and perfectly cooked grains. Disastrous!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust
I froze the butter, grated it, then refroze it for a total of about an hour before putting everything together. *I even substituted a bit of the butter for margarine since I doubled the recipe and didn't have enough butter. I refrigerated the dough only for about 1 hour. It was easy to work with and not tough at all. This was my first pie dough, and it came out perfectly with my pot pie.

Spaghetti Pie III
Very tasty. Changes: After draining the pasta, I beat in 2 eggs and about 1 tbs margarine. Adding the margarine allowed me to skip the cooking spray later. I used ground turkey, which was great, but I added 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp cayenne, and 1/4 tsp dried parsley. This gave the sauce more zip, which I need. I didn't have green bell peppers, so I used red, yellow, and orange instead, which was nice for color. Since my fiance hates soft cheese, I skipped the cream cheese and just used sour cream mixed with chives and a dash of salt and pepper for that layer. It was great. It was, however, missing the extra moisture from the cc. Next time, I'll double the sour cream. Lastly, I topped it all with a slice of uncooked bacon cut into pieces. I let it cook for 15 minutes covered and 15-20 mins uncovered to darken the bacon. It turned out well. Flavorful and hearty. I'd make this again.
