Chicken Tortellini Pasta Salad
About this Cook
I am the mother of 2 grown daughters. Ironically, one never cooks and the other wishes she would have gone to culinary school instead of becoming a nurse! Now an empty nester, enjoying life with my husband Terry, dog Toby & 2 cats, Spanky & Abby.
My favorite things to cook
I love simple but great tasting recipes the most, but am willing to try anything.
My cooking triumphs
I consider anything I cook which others like a triumph and recently, many of those recipes have come from this website!!!
My cooking tragedies
I made a rabbit dish once (Rabbit Dijon) that was just plain gross!

Across the Border Tequila Shrimp
Hubby and I love this recipe. I make it with a lime jalapeno cilantro rice and fresh corn, cut from cob and sauteed in butter and sprinkled with chili powder. If I have some crusty bread to serve with this, I make more of the sauce and don't let it completely cook down, so we can dip the bread. Sooo good!

Kickin' Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions and Spicy Sweet Mayo
Loved, loved loved these burgers!!! It is just layers & layers of flavor from the burgers to the sauce. Only thing I did different was add a slice of swiss cheese. The sauce is terrific - I had it on a ham sandwich today & dipped pretzels in it!!....Another reviewer said it would make even flip flops taste good & that is right on!!!! Great recipe Occasional Cooker!.
