My favorite things to cook
I love cooking. I love trying new gourmet recipes... when I have time (which isn't often). So mostly I'm looking for new (healthy!) recipes that'll wow my family in no time flat... but still taste like I spent hours in the kitchen!

DSF's Honey Roasted Carrots And Parsnips
As written, I give this recipe a solid 4 (although it does need double the cooking time at these temps). Cut the carrots and parsnips into finger-sized pieces, and double the time, and you'll have lovely carmelized veggies. In subsequent recipe attempts, however, I've found that adding about 1/2 tsp of crushed dried rosemary puts it over the top and makes it a 5+ star recipe. The rosemary and honey combination are exquisite!

Frank's Favorite Slow-Cooker Thai Chicken
Phenomenal!! Made it exactly as written the first time and it was delicious; the second time I sauteed together onions and red peppers, and stirred that in with a bunch of fresh spinach about 15 minutes before I wanted to serve it. Also added about 2 tsp siracha sauce the second time; the spice cooks right out of it otherwise. Served over rice mixed with green peas... the family couldn't stop raving (even the 10-year-old that doesn't like spices or new flavours). This recipe is a keeper!

Pretzel Turtles
Super easy, always a crowd pleaser. I sprinkle a couple of grains of sea salt on top of each rolo before I press the toasted nut down... for a bit more of a "salted caramel" taste. Wherever I take these, people rave.
