About this Cook
Hi, Don't know what to say about me. Love to laugh. Play card games with friends. Enjoy taking college courses in my free time, try to take one per semester at the community College if I can. I am a Silver/gold smith who does one of a kind jewelry pieces. I also paint and do small sculpture. Married to a great man since 1984. No kidlings, but I do have a kitty-cat friend.
My favorite things to cook
Really have always enjoyed baking. But am finding I really like to cook things with veggies, I enjoy cutting stuff up, get to pretend I am Emeril for a bit. It also seems like if it makes the kitchen a mess I like doing it. (Grin)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I miss the big family thanksgivings of my childhood. Watching my Gang-Gang(grandma) bake pies. I watched her for hours. Loved to watch her hands work. I miss her, I love to bake pies at thanksgiving in Gang's pie pans.
My cooking triumphs
Making cabbage buns that taste just like my husband remembers his grandma's
My cooking tragedies
The first turkey I ever made. I did not know to thaw it first so I baked it with the baggies of stuff in it. I tell you what, melted plastic bags of giblets do not make good turkey stuffing and is NOT good eats..........LOL

Rusty Chicken Thighs
Am going to try this for supper tonight. Wondering if the bad reviews came from people using Miracle Whip or spread instead of "real" Mayo. Mixed up the marinade and it smells fine, will see how it is after cooking. UPDATE: This was the best marinade I have tried yet! I used skinless boneless breasts and marinated for 4 hours. Dried off the breasts, drizzled with olive oil and grilled in a cast iron grill pan as it was too windy and cold to do it outside. Fussy husband says to say NUM!!! He said 3 times, be sure and save this one, Hon!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken
The tin foil keeps it out of the juices, so it tastes roasted, not boild. If your a skin eater, this is not for you. But if your looking for a good tender chicken that will work for all kinds of things the first time and for leftovers this is the recipe for you.
