About this Cook
Now that I am starting to get more comfortable with cooking, I am having a lot of fun trying out new recipes on my husband (a very good sport, I might add!).
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, breakfast meals, and nice dinner entrees.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making the turkey dinner for Thanksgiving-- I have done it the last few years, and am looking forward to continuing this tradition. I am also looking forward to starting a gingerbread-house tradition with my family during the holiday season.
My cooking triumphs
Breakfast muffins, cheesecake, Thanksgiving dinner.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count! And talk about tragic! (I can laugh about them-- and me-- now)

Barbeque Chicken
I wasn't too impressed with this recipe. It wasn't as flavorful as I was expecting. I will try making it again one more time, though.

Manicotti Alla Romana
My two picky eaters loved this! Since my family is small, I reduced the amounts used for the filling: I used a half-pound of ground beef; maybe about a cup's worth of fresh spinach (which I lightly boiled, then chopped before adding it to the beef); a cup of cottage cheese (we don't have ricotta); about a teaspoon of dried parsley; and then one beaten egg. As I was using what I already had in the house, I also substituted in 12 jumbo shells (parboiled, about 6 minutes) instead of the manicotti tubes, which will give us enough for two meals. I used the full amounts for the white sauce, though. Yes, it was a little salty, but that's because I'm not used to too much salt. My husband really liked the layering of the flavors between the white sauce and the jarred pasta sauce (I used one that had Italian sausage in it). Thanks for a great recipe!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken
Loved it! Took a double batch to a potluck tonight (adding a little extra honey so that it was 2/3 c Dijon mustard, 2/3 c honey, 4 Tbs mayo, and 2 tsp steak sauce). I told everyone that we were all going to be guinea pigs for this recipe. This chicken ended up being the hit of the party! Thanks for a great recipe.
