About this Cook
I love cooking, and I have a food blog. If you want to visit, here is the address: http://dishingwithdish.blogspot.com/I now live overseas again.... I like trying Portuguese (and many other) recipes. I love to cook and bake. I try a new recipe most nights of the week. I hardly ever use cookbooks anymore, although I do still love looking at them. I enjoy learning about health and nutrition..sometimes that is reflected in my cooking, sometimes not!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I love making cookies, brownies, special cakes, and other fun desserts. In my baked goods, I usually replace at least some of the white flour with whole wheat. Usually you can't even tell- if anything, stuff tastes better! I also make a lot of chicken dishes. I am always on the lookout for my next one!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes a great Thanksgiving dinner. We're never together on Thanksgiving, but I carry on the tradition of her great food, throwing in my own specialties of course! My little family is having fun creating new traditions, mixing the old and the new.
My cooking triumphs
I'm trying to master yeast breads and still have a lot to learn. It's a good feeling to have a loaf of bread you've made with your own two hands. I've also recently tackled making fudge. Anything that turns out well and is delicious is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Going to answer the door for the mailman one time while I was making praline sauce.... didn't work out for me so well.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Loved these- so, so, SO delicious!!! Unwrapped the pb cups and stuck them in the freezer for an hour beforehand- makes the whole process easier.

Shirley's Maine Clam Chowder
I wanted to make Maine clam chowder after visiting Maine this last summer. This was a very easy receip. It was more thin and brothy than I thought it would be, but looked similar to the recipe in my Maine cookbook (which I lost, hence turning to this recipe). The cookbook recipe did not call for bacon, so I didn't have any on hand. Instead I added some real bacon bits as this was simmering. So I just cooked the onions in some butter. I also didn't have that many clams on hand, so I made do with two cans.

I LOVED this!! Do not skimp on the Sumac; it's available from Penzeys.com if you can't find it. I used homemade grilled Naan bread in place of the pita; the pitas I can buy here are gross. Such a good salad. Loved all the flavors. Served with Lebanese chicken skewers with garlic sauce.
