About this Cook
Spent many years in Iowa and also two years in China. Also make jewelry. Check out my site at www.shanghaitai.com
My favorite things to cook
Chicken and cashews, chicken fried rice, fruit smoothies (not really cooking, I know), beef tips and gravy, lumpia,
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner, of course!
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to cook beef tips and gravy so we don't have to buy large quantities from the Schwans man.
My cooking tragedies
Cooked a goose too long one time. Even though it was supposed to cook that long it was pretty well ruined (ouch!)

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
Ok, I am lazy, and there is no need to go to all this trouble. I mixed the flour in with the milk, and then just threw it all in a pan, mixed it and stuck it in the oven. I didn't melt anything, there's no way I'm going to mess with a saucepan of melting cheese. I just stirred it every half hour while it was baking. It was great! I will never buy one of those Betty Crocker mixes again.

Marinade for Chicken
I also did not add the extra salt. In addition I used slightly less Worcestershire and slightly more soy sauce because I knew we would like it that way. I thought there was maybe a tiny bit too much mustard, but my husband didn't think so. I used this for baked chicken, but for some reason it didn't get crispy at all. I think it would be really good for chicken on the rotisserie.

Angel Hair Pasta Chicken
It's a good start, but it is a bit bland. I think next time I will use fresh basil baste rather than dried basil. Also it needs more sauce, so I think I will double the chicken broth, and it needs to be thickened a little (corn starch perhaps?) I think onions, and maybe a little more garlic would be a nice addition. I made this with Dreamfields (low carb) pasta, so it was actually very healthy and good for my diabetic husband.
