About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. I have always been able to taste and recreate. Now that I have have the time, I am trying to follow recipes. It started 5 years ago when my daughter in law assigned everyone a recipe from a Bon Appetite Thanksgiving menu.The family made bets that I could and would recreate the taste, but that I could not follow it to the letter...I did, and the good tasting ones I put on a diet, changed in other words, and continue to get requests for.
My cooking tragedies
I had been looking for and trying to recreate a stuffed baked flounder, with crab and white wine sauce. Cracked the crab and thought it had stuffing in it...$$$$$ and it was awful!!!

Quick Chinese Chicken Salad
My hubby loves this and always orders it when we go out. After reading the reviews I understand, like "dah" what I was doing wrong when I made it for him & why he doesn't like mine. I like a substantial meal. A solid salad, if it is going to be a meal. I sneak in every available, appropriate ingredient I have on hand, and I have lots of ingredients in my pantry. What I got is that this salad is simple, light & has the only ingredient I never have on hand--cilantro. I didn't love it at all...but my husband, really, really did.. Thanks for letting me see this salad is not for me, and can be enjoyed

Slow Cooker Turkey Legs
I wanted to check this out...and by gosh it worked... Took the hind end of a turkey...seasoned, put in a carrot,celery & onion, double wrap in foil...did not tie it up...cooked for 9 hours. Pulled it out of the pot, opened foil & the dark meat people oh & Ah. Took another two (2)-- 14#ers, cut in half & joined them. the middle screamed for stuffing...put some in & tied up the bird. Cooked in a cooking, when I learn how to down load the pictures..beyond wonderful. This recipe had me curious enough to work with, and the courage to try. So, thanks...Also, I took a bolt cutter for the leg nubs to remove the tendons after cooking...also easy.

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Tarts
Love the variation, with crust... but for EZ, use regular muffin tin, spray, fold in a slice of ham or turkey, put the egg in bake 375 for 15-20... They come out crisp. I will bake both because some people don't like (how not to like?) the crust or if you see you just need more food--fast.
