About this Cook
Love cooking for my family and friends! I get stressed entertaining because I find timing the meal very stressful so I often just serve appies and always bring special dishes to friends homes when we are invited!
My favorite things to cook
anything NOT traditional. Never been a traditional meat n'potatoes kind of eater. We tend to eat everything with a bit of a gourmet twist i.e.: Pizza with pear and gorgonzola, meatloaf with spinach and pinenuts...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Never carried any over from my family as they were not very adventurous eaters/cookers. In fact, all the meat we ever ate was over cooked so it was unidentifiable! I ate my first real steak at a friend's when I was 10. My mother asked why I ate theirs and not hers.Not knowing anything about meat I explained that they had pink juice in theirs! (med-rare!!). Our only tradition is unanimously enjoying our home-made baked goods together! :o)
My cooking tragedies
as always...not reading the recipe right through to the end BEFORE I make it! "Oooohhhh...I was supposed to add that then?!"

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
Fantastic! Soooo easy and so delicious! I doubled the recipe and took the advice of previous reivews stating that they found it a bit salty so I used one regular package of taco seasoning and one package of low sodium. We just served it on both soft and hard shells with guacamole, tomatoes, shredded cheese and sour cream. Deeelish! I will definitely keep this recipe and make again. Excellent for a large group.

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs
This was WONDERFUL!! I must admit, did not have high expectations as I have marinated in a yogurt based marinade before and found the chicken doesn't usually pick up the taste. Not the case with this one! It was fabulous. My extremely finicky 10 yr old who just about cries or whines EVERY night at dinner (I am not exaggerrating) even ate it and said it was good! My only regret is that I mindlessly put the skewers on the grill without oiling it or at least spraying olive oil on the kabobs themselves and I ended up losing half the chicken as it was stuck to the grill. I can't wait to make this for company! BTW, my 6 yr old and I enjoyed dipping the chicken in tzatiki sauce :o)
