About this Cook
My favorite part of cooking is recreating a meal I have ordered in a restaurant. I love the challenge to perfect it and also enjoy it at home with the added advantage of paying a lot less for it!
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling and roasting vegetables to use in many different recipes. Some examples: in Soups, Chicken or Turkey Pot Pies, Quiche, Stir Fry, Pasta and Rice dishes, Quesadillas and even Enchiladas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my family is here for any occasion I try to include one dish that each member loves to eat or drink. It may be the appetizer, cocktail, main dish, side dish or dessert, but I will know that each person will be satisfied with at least one part of the meal.
My cooking triumphs
I consider a cooking triumph whenever I hear compliments from my friends and family about a meal I have prepared...especially if it's one I have created myself!
My cooking tragedies
Garlic Bread. I literally have to baby-sit my garlic bread. This works best for me. Since I'm not really using a recipe for it due to using different breads and temperature settings at times (from foods I may have just taken out of the oven) it’s always a guessing game. So now I have resorted to parking myself in front of the oven. I know it will be less than ten minutes or so but I am determined to sit and watch for it to be the perfect bubbly, golden brown! One thing neither my family nor I will ever forget is when I was carrying a 9x13 dish of barbecued chicken and I dropped it. Fortunately the dish didn't break and it landed right side up with enough chicken left in it for us to still enjoy dinner!

Fresh Lime Curd
Excellent! Tastes exactly like the filling from Marie Callendar's Key Lime Pie!

Unbelievable Chicken
I was only able to marinated the chicken for 6 hours and it just didn't have the amount of flavor I was looking for. I barbecued it and although the chicken was very tender, it just didn't take on the flavor like others I have used and marinated for a lot less hours. I did like this recipe because it includes a lot of ingredients I generally have in my kitchen.
