About this Cook
I like to cook, but I love to bake. My favorites are biscotti and cookies, but plan to make more quick breads, cakes, scones and muffins this year than last. I don't do pie, as the crust is so unhealthy I would feel guilty feeding it to my family. I like to use as many light or reduced fat recipes as I can for both baking and cooking. Sometimes though, I go with the real thing, like Christmas cookies and choc chip cookies just have to have butter in them or they are not worth the effort.
My favorite things to cook
Salmon, chicken, salads, casseroles, soups, stir-fry
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandmother's recipe for dense, heavy, white bread (super for toast), and my mother's No-egg Cocoa Cake with Brown Sugar and Walnut Glaze.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
Duck. It's a long story.

Sweet Hot Mustard Chicken Thighs
We loved this chicken, although I confess I used bone-in breasts with skin instead of the thighs. The breasts stayed nice and juicy and the meat was extremely flavorful in spite of the fact I forgot to add the garlic to the marinade (and added garlic powder on the meat instead) and also forgot the onions! What a forgetful day it was! But dinner was yum in spite of it! I marinaded the meat for 5 hours and roasted some chunked Yukon golds with a bit of olive oil and herbs off to the side of the meat, in the same pan. It was all done at the same time...perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!

Pork Chops Italiano
This recipe was so flavorful, but the chops dried out in spite of the initial browning. When I make them next time I will get very thick chops and leave them a bit frozen and see if that helps. Otherwise, a truly good dish that my husband and I both really liked.

Italian Vegetable Soup
This was a wonderful soup! The only things I changed were browning the meat with the onions in a T of olive oil, using beef soup base instead of the bouillon granules, adding four cups water and leaving out the corn. Oh, and I adjusted the spices since I added more water. This soup is flavorful even without simmering all day! Unlike others I left the cabbage in since we love it!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
