About this Cook
Now that I'm older and just cooking for two I have plenty of time to experiment and try recipes I've saved for years. We're becoming more health conscience so produce is becoming more prominent and meat is becoming an ingredient instead of a main event. Now fish and shrimp...they are always main events served with wonderful salads and baked garlic parm cheese bread.
My favorite things to cook
Stir fries, fried rice, dumplings, pasta, seafood, dinner salads, breakfasts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Now it's making interesting snacky dinners for my husband and I. We love throwing things together from this and that in the frig. We plan a few meals like baked pork loin with balsamic vinegar sauce and chicken breasts marinated in garlic dressing. Each makes a meal and leaves leftovers to create delicious snack trays combined with an assortment of cheeses, condiments, various breads, veggies and sprouts we always have in the frig. Add a glass of wine and you've got a nice relaxing meal. Or....if you can't decide what to do with it all just throw it all together in a salad. You'd be surprised (-;
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make big fist size crispy New York style egg rolls filled with shrimp and pork and lots of shredded veggies.

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche
I saw this recipe and just had to try it. Only problem was, I didn't have the right cheese. Bottom line I followed this recipe to the letter but had to use half Swiss and half Mozzarella cheese. I will make this again using the cheese in this recipe. In any event...I had to come here and say....It's marvelous. Such an easy, beautiful looking, delightful tasting quiche that will have me adding quiche to our recipe rotation. Thank you Kris

A-Number-1 Banana Cake
I just made this cake tonight for the first time. I followed the recipe exactly. I had bought buttermilk to make "Creamed Corn Corn Bread" and had a little less than 1 cup left over. Perfect for this recipe. I did combine everything a little different though...the lazy I don't think it hurt the results though. I have a Ninja. First I combined the dry ingrediets in a large bowl and set aside. I added the sugar and butter to the Ninja and pulsed a few times. Broke two eggs in...pulsed until incorporated. Added broken up bananas...a few short bursts of pulsing to mix everything well. It was really hard not to add vanilla but I wanted to stay true. Next I poured the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixed together, and dumped it in a greased 9 X 13 Pyrex baking dish and baked as directed. It turned out great. This is a keeper. No vanilla....just follow the recipe.

Popcorn Shrimp
Very tasty fried shrimp from a very nice recipe I will save. I followed this recipe with one change to technique only. Instead of adding the seasonings to the final breading, I mixed the seasonings together in a little dish and tossed it with the raw shrimp before I started breading them. That way non of the dried herbs get "burned" by the frying process. The seasonings are hydrated by the moist shrimp and protected by the coating. The seasonings cook from the inside instead of getting fried from the outside which results in richer flavor.
