About this Cook
I'm a former product manager with a Fortune 500 company and left that rat race 9 years ago. I started making custom designed jewelry 4 years ago and absolutely love it! My first passion is cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking everything from appetizers to desserts. I make breads and rolls for special occasions too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I've always loved cooking, my two sons who are both in the Navy like to cook too. The best thing we enjoyed were making Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I catered a picnic for 68 people and got rave reviews.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a cheesecake, but didn't have the springform pan latched. When I picked up the pan to take it to the oven, the bottom fell out and the batter was on the floor.

Chicken French - Rochester, NY Style
I'm the author of this recipe and just made this again tonight, to celebrate. Yes, the sauce can be doubled, especially if you'd like the sauce on the rice. As far as egg/cheese/sugar mixture goes. I've never had a problem with it sticking to the flour-dredged chicken. Not sure why it didn't work for Lavendertatoo. I figure if it worked for Julia Child, it should work for anyone.
