About this Cook
I am a mom. I was a trained chef. :)I have 8 slow cookers, and I use them a lot. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes and am learning how to deal with that.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook chicken. I have many food allergies, so I cook my own food from scratch and adapt some of the recipes that I find on this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can cook just about any kind of food, we don't really have any food traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best ribs and cheesecake in the world.
My cooking tragedies
I got hurt at work and can no longer work as a professional chef.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)
I make this a few times a year and it really rocks! I add peas to the finished dish for some color. Thanks for this great recipe!

Chicken Satay
This is AWESOME! I am allergic to peanuts so I used unsweetened soynut butter but changed nothing. I love the complex flavors of the marinade and the tenderness of the chicken. Thank you so much for this recipe.

Butter Bean Burgers
WOW this is good! I couldn't flip the "burgers" so I put it all in a casserole dish, sprayed with PAM, and baked it for 30 mins at 400. It tastes amazing! I didn't use the oil so that cuts down A LOT of the calories - and makes it stick ;) Also, I used 1/2c panko breadcrumbs instead of crackers as I didn't have any.
