About this Cook
Dinner is always interesting in my house. I am a Haitian-American married to a German Chinese. On any given night, we might prepare something from any one of these countries, but we also love Indian and Mediterranean food.
My favorite things to cook
home-made yogurt because my daughter won't eat anything else, spicy curries, banana nut bread, I love the way it makes the house smell, and my favorite breakfast- a perfectly boiled 6 minute egg.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Jan 1, is Haitian Independence Day. Most Haitians whether in Haiti, America, Canada or Europe, make a very special soup, called Soupe Joumou. We eat this delicous, spicy, hearty soup with crusty baguette and butter, and a strong cup of Haitian coffee with condensed milk.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make a perfect Weiner Schnitzel and Spaetzle for my half German husband.
My cooking tragedies
Homemade baby food. My daughter did not like pureered food, she went from breast milk to table food with the exception of rice cereal, oatmeal and mashed sweet potatoes.

Honey Baked Chicken II
I made some changes: Boneless skinless chicken thighs (5 large)instead of cut up chicken 2 tbl olive oil instead of butter 1/3 cup dijon mustard 1/2 cup honey 1/2 cup chicken broth 2 tsp mild yellow curry 1 tsp garam masala 2 large garlic cloves 4 med yukon gold potatoes skin on 1/2 small bag of baby carrots I layered the chicken on top of the potatoes and carrots, poured sauce on top and baked for what seemed like forever. It took almost two hours to cook the potatoes the way I like. Next time I think I will get those small yukon gold potatoes that you microwave in the bag. I will also blanch the thighs first. Then I will add everything to a pan and bake. That should help to get dinner on table quicker. I liked the suggestion to stick under the broiler for a few min at the end to get really nice color.

Black Beans and Pork Chops
I seasoned the pork chops with smoked paprika, black pepper and garlic salt. The smoked paprika added a wonderful smokiness that complimented the black beans very well. At the 15 min mark, I added a small handful of finely shredded cheddar cheese and covered the pan for the last 5 min or so. I served it over parboiled rice with a side of pickled jalapenos. Next time I will make sure I have a ripe avocado to eat along side this dish. The cool creaminess of avocado would have gone perfectly. My daughter asked for sour cream, another good idea!
