About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
There are just far too many to name. Just about anything that contains cheese will be my favorite. I also enjoy baking a variety of desserts. Nothing can top all the compliments that come with them :).

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
This is to die for. With or without the raspberry sauce. I've used the white chocolate portion of this recipe to make a bunch of delicious cheesecakes. I highly recommend readying some articles or blogs on how to bake cheesecakes well. Practice and all of my research has served me well! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Artichoke Chicken
My boyfriend and I loved this! I did make my own changes though. I cooked up some rice and added that under the chicken breasts. I mixed a small amount of lemon juice into the rice I butterflied two breasts to make four smaller ones. I used just a few marinated artichoke hearts (I have a huge jar from Costco). I added minced fresh garlic and fresh italian seasoning. I used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream with just a bit more of the lemon juice. Browned the top at the end and WALA! Heaven!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
I make this soup all the time! It's everyones favorite! I di however make fresh enchilada sauce, since I hate the canned version. I use a roasted chicken, homemade roasted tomatillo enchilada sauce, all chicken broth instead of water and cook it overnight. It gets better with every day you have leftovers. I make huge batches and take whatever the boyfriend doesn't eat to work!
