About this Cook
It is just me and my husband. We are both employed more than full-time. He is the gourmet cook. I do the "pity cooking". When he has had a bad day I try my best to make something that doesn't taste awful. :)
My favorite things to cook
My favorite dish is my green chili chicken enchiladas. Pretty much the only thing I can make that pleases everyone.
My favorite family cooking traditions mom was a single working mother with three girls to raise by herself. Pretty much hamburger helper or Pizza Hut.
My cooking triumphs
I made a cheesecake once that didn't give anyone food poisoning. Or they were too polite to tell me about it.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to count. The night I dropped and smashed a Prrex measuring cup right next to a pan of sauteeing onions wasn't a highlight.

Boozy Rice with Nuts and Berries
Excellent! Easy! Directions are spot on. There is some plan ahead time needed for this dish because the flavors really do have to sit for a time in order to blend. Right after completing the recipe I tasted the dish and thought, "meh". Served 3 hours later with dinner and it was, "wow"! One small change - I left out some of the olive oil to cut back on fat and calories. I drizzled over the top and mixed in - probably 1/8 to 1/4 cup. Everything else was followed to the letter. Great, healthy alternative to potato or macaroni salads in the summer time.

Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken
Unbelieveably Easy and Delicious! I couldn't find greek seasoning so I made my own - used an recipe. Delicious and made just enough for this recipe. Sauce/marinade is a perfect balance of spices and lemon. However, I love strong flavors so you may want to use less lemon if you enjoy more subltle flavors. Followed recipe exactly. Cooking times were spot on. Served with Boozy Rice w/ nuts - recipe available on this site - and a salad. PERFECT MEAL.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I
Very rich. Can be served with many different sauces to suit your mood/occasion. Used 3 whole eggs and 3 egg whites as others suggested. Cooking times were spot on. This makes enough to feed an army because it is so rich and satisfying.
