Shamrock dinner rolls for St. Patrick's Day!
About this Cook
I discovered how much fun it can be to cook when I got married and had to either cook or eat burgers the rest of our lives. We have a toddler that loves to cook with me, and I love that we can spend that time together. When I cook, I love to have a beverage- coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening!
My favorite things to cook
New stuff!! I have tried and true recipes that we love, but I am also lucky to have a hubby that enjoys trying new things with me.
My cooking triumphs
My first time hosting Christmas dinner, I made beef tenderloin and a ham. And I was pleased that I was able to pull it off. Got family to help after they arrived, which I think it a fun way to spend time together, talking, reminiscing, laughing, of course over a bottle of wine!

Simple Time Pork Chops
My mom made these for dinner and my husband has been raving about them ever since, so I made them for us the following weekend. The dish was easy to prepare and the flavor is fantastic. I was a little worried about the amount of salt when I was sprinkling it on top of each chop as it looked like a lot, but they tasted fine. They were wonderfully flavorful and tender. Made the dish exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing! Served with home fries and apple salad.

Chef John's Flour Tortillas
Made pork chalupas from this site and didn't have tortillas on hand, so my husband and I decided to try making them. These turned out good, and easy to make. We had fun with it. Might try playing around with flavors just to see what we can come up with, but this makes a good tortilla as is. As I was cooking them I kept the finished ones on a plate, with another plate over it, to keep them from drying out.

Famous Chicken Francaise
My husband said to give this 5 stars, and the flavor was fantastic. I'm going with 4 though for two reasons- After letting simmer for 8 mins the sauce reduced so much that there wasn't any to spoon over the chicken and bed of pasta when serving. Also, I let the coated chicken sit for a while before placing it in the pan so it held beautifully when browning. But when I added the lemon mix to the pan and simmered, the coating didn't hold as well on the bottom of the chicken. Just a couple of tweaks- I added white wine to the lemon mixture; and as I had seen on other recipes I dredged the chicken in the flour first, then the egg, then let it sit for 20 mins. Thank you for sharing this recipe, it was easy and tasty, and we really enjoyed it!
