About this Cook
I love trying new recipes and will alternate between quick & easy and gourmet dinners. I will sometimes try to recreate dishes we love from our favorite restaurants.
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything with chicken. I love to use my Crock Pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, each of us would cook dinner one night a week. On New Year's Eve we would make tamales.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone loves my BBQ Chicken Nachos and cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
One time when I was 10, I made scalloped potatoes and didn't kinow the difference between condensed milk and evaporated milk. I felt so bad because they looked really good but tasted awful and we had to throw the whole thing away.

Bourbon Fig Compote
My favorite brand of fig spread is discontinued! This recipe is just the replacement I needed. I will never go fig spreadless again. Okay, so I modified the recipe a tiny bit: we used up all our bourbon for Manhattans, but I had some brandy on hand. Whisky, brandy, orange liqueur, Southern Comfort, I bet any of these would work. If you can find LaPanzanella Black Pepper Crackers, spread the fig compote on the cracker with some Beechers Flagship cheese. Mmmmmmm...

Creamy Slow Cooker Potato Cheese Soup
Very good. Used 5 cups chicken stock, I don't use bullion cubes...Cooked on high for 4 hours then crockpot turned automatically to warm :) I used an immersion blender on the entire contents of slow cooker before adding the milk & cheese (3 cups of grated cheese please), this made a nice silky textured soup. I then added diced, cooked red potatoes w/skin on (about 5 small). It was only 20 min extra work to cut & boil them. I added 3 chopped green onions after adding the red potato and bacon. Oh, and it definitely needs more bacon!! I used 10 pieces. The next day for leftovers, I had to add a couple tablespoons chicken stock to each serving to thin it out. Probably not the most heart-healthy recipe but I will definitely make again-my way. Serve with a green salad to feel less guilty ;)
