About this Cook
We are an active family with a love for food. We grill 90% of the year, and often our entire meals are grilled. We love to try anything, and dislike little.
My favorite things to cook
Since we grill so much I am a pro at grilling meats. I would deflate my husband's ego if he knew this, but I think I grill mets better than he does. But I'll give him potatoes - that man can grill the perfect potatoes you ever ate!! I do love baking, but I am awaiting a very necessary kitchen remodel that will allow me the freedom to bake the things I'd like.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family? Not many - there are a few gems, like Grandma's Famous Burnt Beans and Mommy's Famous Hamburger Hash, but I'd have to say my favorite is our standard Keilbasa, Saurkraut & Mashed Potatoes dinner. Otherwise, no real traditions in my family, so I'm hoping to start some of my own.
My cooking triumphs
I'm getting really good at baked goods - especially cookies. So, I'd say that generally is what my cooking triumph is thus far.
My cooking tragedies
Well, I have a bad habit of not tasting things before I serve them - my husband can't comprehend how I make food without tasting it. Don't ask, because I don't know. But, needless to say, it has resulted in a few foul tasting mishaps that have been quickly taken off the dinner table to be replaced by whatever is in the pantry.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Very delish! Easy to make and it was a hit! Only 4 stars though because it's good, but not the best one I've had.

Chicken, Asparagus, and Mushroom Skillet
This was excellent! The only change I made was that I was (gasp!) out of olive oil, so I used lemon olive oil that I happened to have from a stocking stuffer. I actually think that improved the dish. Between than and the lemon juice, it had a wonderful light citrus flavor. I, too browned the chicken in the olive oil and butter first to brown them. I also removed the chicken while the spices, garlic and vegetable cooked, then I put the chicken back in and covered the dish and removed it from heat and let the flavors soak into the chicken. I served it with salad and egg noodles. Very yummy! I'll be keeping this one in my arsenal.
