About this Cook
Recently retired from nursing, taking up photography & cooking. Purchased a new house last year on 5 acres so lots of gardening and landscaping to keep me busy. Both of my children are grown and gone, although my 19 year old son does come home for summer break from college. We have two labs, one black, one yellow... Tucker & Lilly, they keep me company when my husbands out of town on business.

Apple Crisp with Oat Topping
A fantastic recipe! I tried it the first time as posted and then like some of you, it's fun to play with it and make it your own. I added a 1/8 tsp of Nutmeg to the Cinnamon for the apples. (apples cut a little thick, not too thin, not too thick) I added a 1/8 tsp of Nutmeg & 1/8 tsp of Cloves, 1 cup of chopped Walnuts to the topping. Holy Apple Crisp! Doubling the recipe next time! Thanks for sharing Realnakedchef!

Dark Chocolate Cake II
Whoops! I should have stayed in bed today. Ever have one of those days? I was late for an appointment and then came home to make cupcakes and used Ground Chocolate with Cocoa instead of Unsweetened Cocoa. Simple mistake, always a good idea to pay attention and read labels. The batter is runny but it was great for pouring cupcakes...although it seems that I've forgotten what 2/3 of a cup is and filled the cups to 3/4. Like I said, there just those days when anything technical or having to do with numbers and simplistic abilities should be avoided. All that said, the cupcakes are marvelous! What a good recipe, to be able to recover from accidents and perform so well. Maybe it was just too easy? I did mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then added to dry. Did not use a mixer, just a hand whisk.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken
Followed the recipe with suggestions from others, grilled on med. heat. The chicken turned out moist and tender, everyone that came to dinner complimented me on the dish. I personally thought I added just a touch too much mustard but I was the only one that thought that so it must have just been me. I also served Baby red potatoes with Garlic, Basil & Thyme, sweet onion rings atop-roasted. The wine was a Washington wine- Chateau Ste Michelle-Horse Heaven vineyard- Sauvignon Blanc, it complimented the chicken with a soft hint of pear & grapefruit, with crisp texture. The wine was chilled to about 52 degrees. For desert I poured a chilled Gewurztraminer ice wine into Belgium dark chocolate cups. I got 5 stars from my guests.
