About this Cook
I love to be creative in the kitchen. I rarely follow a recipe exactly and quite often I create my own from scratch. My passion for cooking is constantly growing. There is almost no where else I'd rather be than in my kitchen.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)
This was so delicious. I was doing a lot of cooking the day I made this, so to make things a tiny bit easier I purchased a rotisserie chicken, took it off the bone and used that. I wanted it lighter, so used evaporated milk instead of cream, and used ground cashews instead of cornstarch to thicken. This was amazing and we will be having it again soon!

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie
Delicious! I stumbled across these when I had a major craving for fresh cookies, but very little butter. I've given it 4 stars because I did modify things a wee bit. I used 1/4 cup melted butter and 3/4 cup canola oil. I eliminated the almond extract because I can't stand the stuff, and increased the vanilla to 1 tbsp instead. I used a combo of white and semi-sweet chocolate chips to use up what I had in the cupboard. I also added 1 cup of rice crispies. Something I've seen before with cookies and they add a bit of extra texture. I used my cookie scoop and baked for about 10 min. If you want a chewy cookie do not leave them in too long, you want them to almost be a bit underdone. These were a huge hit and are sure to be made again.

Strawberry Avocado Salad
Delicious and versatile. I don't use the sugar, just the honey, and I use lime juice and zest instead of lemon juice. (juice of 1 lime) I also like to add finely chopped cilantro. For the salad I usually use Romain lettuce, and I add all sorts of other veggies as well. (fresh garden peas, peppers, cucumber etc. ) For the crunch, sometimes nuts, sometimes seeds, and sometimes crunchy tortilla strips. Just depends what's on hand. This is delicious and light. Goes very well with bbq chicken or ribs! Yummy!
