About this Cook
I like to cook from "scratch" and use fresh ingredients, including fresh spices in my own combinations and good (healthy) fats in moderation. I am on a customized diet all the time and so use certain ingredients in certain combinations to keep the meals healthy and tasty.
My favorite things to cook
Meat and vegetable dishes Soups Salads
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a European background and have recipes from my families - some really good desserts particularly and also some soups and main dishes.

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry
Sorry for such a long comment, but I like this recipe because of the combination of ingredients and the preparation -- but, of course I made a few changes which for me made it more what I wanted. I used ground turkey this time instead of chicken - but another time I might use chicken. First off I browned the ground turkey to get some meat juices for the sauteeing and then removed the meat, leaving the meat juices. Then instead of oil, I used what I had, which was Smart Balance, and I added chopped fresh ginger and jalapenos to the onion and garlic sautee. I also added the curry powder to this mixture and let it heat up and cook soft. While this was cooking, I chopped up a bunch of fresh broccoli (instead of cauliflower) - stems and florets - and some fresh asparaghus. I added this to the heated spice and onion mixture for a short while to just coat the fresh chopped vegetables and then I took this whole mixture and put it on the bottom of a small (1 1/2 to 2 quart) crock pot. On top of that I added the browned ground turkey. Instead of one 14 ounce can of coconut milk, I used about 1/2 the can and added in a 10.75 ounce can of Campbell's condensed Broccoli Cheese soup, which is one of the rare prepared soups I like. I wanted a liquid-y result, so I added some heated up chicken broth. Then I grated some fresh black pepper on it all. I turned the crock pot on high for a while before I went to sleep -- before I went to sleep, the last thing I did was put the crock pot
