About this Cook
I'd rather bake than cook, hence, "ReluctantCook". We live in Hawaii, so ReluctantCook-HI I am.

Pan-Fried Wild Salmon
This was SO easy to make and it tasted as good as any other way I've cooked salmon. Way easier than using the ridged pan I use in the broiler. I love the flavor that sea salt gives salmon. I followed the recipe but did not do the salmon skin. Next time I will.

Pork Chops with Garden Rice
This was just okay. What I would do differently next time is continue to cook the pork chops in the pan, as they started out. Salt, pepper, garlic and paprika on the chops is good. Don't put them in the rice mix. I would take the rice mixture out of the oven after 20 minutes, if it's long grain white rice. It was a mushy, mushy (though fairly tasty) ...well...mush.

Butternut Squash Soup II
Excellent! Simple ingredients, wholesome taste. Followed the ingredients. Different--I pierced and microwaved the squash, whole, for about 2 min. per lb. After cooling, I cut it in half and then cubed the insides, scooping the cubes out with a spoon. Very simple. Top with a dollop of sour cream. Mmmmm!
