About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love cooking with my daughter (16) and son (9).
My cooking triumphs
Having one of my kids say "Dad, this is the best ____ ever." Or, my daughter cooking a birthday surprise for me and me managing to stay out of the kitchen most of the time even though it was killing me.
My cooking tragedies
Setting off the smoke alarm and getting visited by the fire department in my apartment twice- once cooking burgers for my mom and kids- once browning Italian sausage for a soup.

Awesome Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings
This was easy and pretty tasty. I found they browned up nicely if you follow the instructions and bake at 400 for 30 min. I made as directed except I did one hour on high, then one hour on low as many suggested. I also dunked them back in the slow cooker sauce about halfway through the oven cycle.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken
I followed the recipe exactly, even went to a small local Indian market for some of the ingredients I thought I might have trouble finding at the grocery store. It had a nice texture but I thought it was bland. I eat in Indian restaurants quite a bit and love most of the dishes. I don't think I've ever had butter chicken before. It may be that I am just not a fan of that particular dish.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
This was very good. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and when I got home I used this to fill enchiladas, adding a little shredded cheese. Rolled them up, topped with canned sauce and more cheese, put them in the oven, and 20 minutes later I had some very tasty enchiladas. This will probably replace my other enchilada recipe. This is much easier.
