About this Cook
I have been married for 6 years and I do all the cooking. But since it's just me and my husband (no kids) it's not a lot of work. I would probably cook/bake more if I had a dishwasher. Which is kind of why I like, here I can research recipes/reviews and know whatever recipe I'm making its worth the time and effort involved, not to mention money.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking and making fairly simple foods. My husband doesn't have fancy tastes buds, which works out well for me. The dinners I make most often are beef/chicken tacos, chicken dishes, and italian dinners. My favorite things to bake are muffins and cookies. I want to learn how to make breads and doughnuts! Yumm!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition was Christmas Eve at my grandma's house. It was tradition, we had the Slovak Christmas Eve courses. Although as a kid I didn't enjoy all the different European ethnic foods (lentils, split peas), looking back I have such fond memories of Christmas and the Slovak dinner is a big part of it. After dinner us kids couldn't wait to open all our presents but first we had to wait until all the dishes were washed, dried and put away. It was torture! lol
My cooking triumphs triumphs. If my husband eats it and actually goes back for seconds I call that a triumph! Then its worth the time spent in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies I have to list them? Too many to remember them all, I'm sure. I haven't done anything too horrendous thank God. Just yesterday I tried to make homemade french fries, they didn't turn out well. I got them into the trash before hubby came down to dinner! Thankfully I had a bag of potato chips to go with our hamburgers.

Famous Butter Chicken
This was very tasty. I did add 1/4 cup of flour to the cracker crumbs, after the chicken was well coated I then seasoned them with garlic/onion powder and pepper. I poured 1/2 stick of melted butter over the chicken breasts. I cooked them in a 8&8 dish, I only had 3 breasts but they were in there pretty tight. Unfortunately mine didn't turn out pretty. They tasted great though! The next day I reheated them in the oven on a pan, at 400 degrees, for about 10 min each side. They tasted great reheated, do not reheat in the microwave -- that would not be pretty! (yuck)

These are a tasty treat, thanks for the recipe. It seems so simple but I never would have thought of it!
