About this Cook
Married, 2 childen, one daughter, one son, one doggie(now an angel in heaven) 2/8/10.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook, it is like therapy to me. Very relaxing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any family cooking traditions of my own, just with my family (parents). Which I still participate in every year. I wish my children would take an interest in cooking, I would love to teach them. Occasionally my son will take over for the night, but it is always something simple. Hey, I'll take what I can get.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that my DH says that I am the Queen of....(blueberry pie, lasagna, etc.)
My cooking tragedies
Well, I guess my biggest problem is, I seem to wind up undercooking some cuts of meat....I know, it's fixable, and I think it's done enough, but, sadly no. We sometimes wind up finishing things in the microwave.

Cuban-Style Pork and Sweet Potatoes
We liked this very much. Had to improvise on the oj. I had a bottle of mojo marinade and used that instead. Followed the rest. We ate it all before I could take pictures! Thanks for the post MONIQUEWS!

Chef John's Caramel Chicken
well, i watched the video before making, but maybe i shouldn't have. i started cooking the chicken; added a third of the sauce as mentioned. the chicken gave off so much water (and i used organic if that makes a difference) that i wound up spooning out a ton of water, along with the sauce. had to do that a couple of times. so, after the pan was sufficiently dry, i added the rest of the sauce. it took about another 10 - 15 mins for the sauce to thicken and brown the chicken. i didn't have or add peanuts or the green onions. i had to use 'rooster sauce' for the heat. we all liked it so i may make it again.

Green Pea Casserole
really liked this....although i had to improvise a bit. had to make my own cream of celery soup...used frozen peas. no pimento and no chestnuts. used 'everything' buttery crackers. i would have taken a picture of it plated, but we ate it up too fast. thanks for the post SALLIEBRYANT!
