About this Cook
Married for 3 years now to a wonderful guy! We just bought a home in April 2006 and are now workin' on starting a family. My favorite holiday of Halloween is coming up, so I'm planning some fun decorations and great food.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken and dumplings and anything Halloween related.
My cooking tragedies
I was making a Lobster and King Crab Pot Pie that I saw on the "Emeril Live" show. The ingredients were very expensive because of the seafood. The roux and filling turned out beautifully. Then I was to make some homemade pie crust for the top crust. I had never made a pie crust before, so I blew off the 3T of cold water in the crust recipe. I had missed it in the recipe and when I was done I figured, it's only 3T...what could that hurt. Boy, was I ever wrong! The crust was mushy and terrible. My husband scooped out the inside of the pie and tried to scrape off every little bit of crust. What an expensive 3T of water:)

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
Very, very yummy. I used the Beefy Onion Soup Mix, but otherwise followed the instructions to a tee. Super easy to make and my husband wolfed it down! Thank you.

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles
I really enjoyed this recipe, but I did make a few modifications. I sauteed a red bell pepper for a few minutes before adding the garlic and red pepper. I also used cilantro instead of parsley which I think adds great flavor to the dish. Also used steamed broccoli instead of the spinach. This was very tasty. I will definitely make this again! Thank you.

Classic Lasagna
This was very tasty, but definitely be sure to cover the top with foil or add the cheese later. My husband enjoyed this very much! Thank you.
