About this Cook
I'm a happily married, wannabe princess living the good life in Florida. :)
My favorite things to cook
I don't know if it can be considered "cooking", but I really enjoy making deviled eggs because people seem to enjoy eating them so much! It's surprising the reaction received sometimes over something so simple. Makes me wonder if these aren't made much anymore or what? I enjoy taking them into the office now and then as my three bosses are in heaven with a plate of deviled eggs. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, every Sunday was one of two meals. Either a yummy beef pot roast (with potatoes, carrots, gravy, and green beans) or fried chicken (with potato salad). To this day, no one can top my mom's pot roast or potato salad.
My cooking triumphs
I recently roasted a gorgeous garlic and lemon-stuffed chicken with vegetables that was just delicious. And looked like something out of a magazine. I was proud of that. :)
My cooking tragedies
A peach cobbler that I had such high hopes for... which burned. No saving it... right into the bin. :(

Greek Orzo Salad
What a delicious side dish/salad! Was looking for something to go with our 4th of July menu. I made the Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs (from this site) and this salad was the perfect accompaniment. I served it warm instead of cold. Next time I might add more lemon juice for even more tang but it's great as-is. The marinade from the artichoke hearts gave great flavor, too. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Patrice!

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs
Yum! Made these for our 4th of July cookout and they were a hit. A bit messy to assemble but that was part of the fun. :) I'm not sure how much feta flavor came from marinating and it's not as if it stuck to the kabobs so next time I'll take another reviewers advice and blend/process the marinade to incorporate the feta better. We used zuchinni instead of the peppers and onions. Also served Greek Orzo Salad from this site. Dinner was delicious and I'll be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe, katplusgoll!

Incredibly Easy Chicken and Noodles
Yum! This is comfort food to the max. This was delicious and made a lot - had plenty leftover for lunch the next day. This was very easy to put together (just as the recipe name says) and I loved the one-pot aspect - throw everything in and heat. I think the dish would be perfectly delcious as-is but I did make a few additions. Sliced carrots and celery, some chicken base and poultry seasoning, and once the noodles were cooked I added a cup of half-and-half to make it rich and creamy. We'll definitely have this again. Thanks, Tammy, for sharing your recipe!
