Beer Cooked Chicken
Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico
About this Cook
I'm semi retired living in the middle of the Arizon High desert. I have 5 retired racing greyhounds and a standard poodle. I do some work for Greyhound Adoption. My business also involves dogs and dog products. :) I spend hours each week sewing, quilting and making other goodies!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make bread, it makes the house smell so good! Light and low cal dishes are some of my favorites and I enjoy taking old family favorites and paring out the calories and fat! And probably my very favorite is making authentic Mexican food. I love hot and spicy espcially. And living this close to the border, I can easily get my hands on those special ingredients!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family traditions for me are German. I love German food and cook it often. I have many of my Mom's recipes that her Mom gave her and they are great!
My cooking triumphs
I've had a few! My best triumph is my tamales, not terribly hard at all, but the process is a bit tedious.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a newly wed, my SIL helped me to make beautiful fried chicken.. and at the last minute I put a little salt on it and the lid from the salt fell off. Bless my DH, he ate it anyhow! I've never attempted to fry chicken again. My first turkey wasn't too hot either!

Waffles I
Excellent. The only thing I did differently was to use coconut oil and I tripled the vanilla and sugar. YUMMY. I've been using a store bought mix for years, I had no idea waffles could be so good. :) I will use this recipe forever!

10 Pound Cheesecake
Very good cheesecake. I made it this morning and it's setting up beautifully and tastes wonderful (licked the mixer beater!) I'll be sharing it with wonderful family tomorrow and I cannot imagine that they won't love it! Thanks for posting this. And by the way, I used my big stand mixer and it was easy easy easy to make!

Chicken Sopa
I added onion and fresh garlic along with some hot peppers and it still was bland. I would add cumin and crushed red peppers and more jalapeno peppers to it at minimum if I try this again. I would probably add more cheese too. And maybe even a package of taco/burrito seasonings. But like others, I was dissapointed and expected more taste, esp. with adding the things I did.
