About this Cook
I have recently moved to a small town and have more time to prepare meals.
My favorite things to cook
I actually really love to bake but with living a healthy lifestyle and a diabetic husband I don't bake that often. I've started baking dog treats and that's fun. I love cooking new vegetable dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
I've definitely learned from watching my Grandmother and mother cook wonderful meals. I do have one Thanksgiving tradition and that is a stuffing recipe I got from the Silver Palate cookbook, with three different kinds of bread, sausage and apples - it's wonderful.
My cooking triumphs
I recently did my Thanksgiving Turkey in a brine (Nigella Lawson's recipe) and the turkey was the best turkey I have ever had, very moist.
My cooking tragedies
Deciding to cook some fish that I had but not having a marinade. Baked it with some leftover pico degallo - it was awful.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake
I made this cake for my boss on his birthday because he likes coconut. I picked it because I know some people don't like the texture of coconut and on a traditional coconut cake you put lots of flaked coconut on the outside but this had lots on the inside. I did reduce sugar by 1 cup but made with sweetened coconut flakes. I made in a bundt pan so reduced cooking time by 10 min. and I put the Coconut Cream Cheese icing on top (I reduced sugar in this recipe also because I wanted a thinner, glaze type icing)I brought flaked coconut with me so those that wanted to could put more on top. It was delicious and my boss asked to have another piece. I will definitely make again.

Unbelievable Chicken
I love this marinade. My step-kids aren't crazy about grilled chicken but they love this. I use the leftover chicken for my weekly salads.
