About this Cook
I am a happily married woman who loves to cook for her husband, and anyone else who appreciates my cuisine. Besides cooking, I work in the medical device field as a QA Auditor. Also, I like to keep up with current events/politics, enjoy spending time with my pet birds (1 Senegal parrot, 2 cockatiels, and 4 parakeets), reading, bargain-hunting, and farmers markets.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook family style meals, slow-cooker meals, chicken dishes, PA Dutch food, and occassionaly an international dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is cooking VERY LARGE amounts of food on the weekend, and trying to come up with various dishes out of the meal. Also, growing up we had a lot of polish food around the holidays, which I have tried to recreate to some extent.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII
This recipe was tasty, especially the crust. I ended up using butter flavored shortening instead of lard, and the crust was still delicious. I have also substituted turkey for chicken with excellent results. Another change I made was that I substituteda cup of frozen peas and carrot for the fresh carrots and celery. The only complaint I have is that this recipe does made WAY too much filling for the pie. However, before making this recipe I remember this complaint among other users, and used only 2 cups of broth and 2 cups of chicken with great results.

Grandpa's Peanut Butter Fudge
I made this recipe for co-workers about a year ago, and it was a hit. Very delicious, and so easy to make! I even caught some co-workers going back for thirds, so what does that say about the recipe!

Honey Fried Chicken
The chicken had a good taste, but some of the honey ended up dripping off the chicken, then burning at the bottom of the pan. However, I would make this recipe again just for the taste.
