About this Cook
You should really learn the Metric System. It is easier for your kids to learn math, NO FRACTIONS. There are 6.4 billion Metric users vs .3 billion Imperial based (America) users. Take a look at your kitchen, A cup and spoon is not the same in every country, it is not an universal measurement, a gram and milliliter is the same everywhere. So passing one recipe from one culture to another is easy. America is the only Industrial Nation required to purchase two sets of tools and hardware in order to work, make or repair products! All other countries only need and use one system. How is that Free World Trade competitive? Not very American CEO smart, now is it.
My favorite things to cook
Love to learn and cook other National recipes. Thank god for diversity!
My cooking triumphs
Using and cooking with the sun and my solar ovens.

Chicken with Chipotle
Sorry, but some of you really kill me, for never had tried Chipotes before. I am laughing pretty hard. Please taste ingredients before adding to mix. Ho Ho ha ha ha Sorry. A little Chipote goes a long way, it is just like the Thai green curry that you buy in the 125 g jar. Use sparingly. This and variations of it is a simple easy and delicious. I did it without the milk but there was still more then enough sauce to cover all the rice. For those who said the sauce broke down is because you need to keep it on low heat on the stove top, if you put it in the oven with the chicken at +175°C, it will break down, but one you mix it with the rice, you will never know it.

Classic Irish Boiled Dinner
When I saw this cut of really cheap smoked meat in the market, I knew I had to do something with it. Thanks for the recipe, easy and delish. I just need to buy a bigger pot to fit it all in, a five liter pot does not cut it, is too small. Cheers!
