About this Cook
I love to cook for others. I still try to impress my husband and I'm am molding & shaping my daughter's palate everyday! I write a blog titled "Gastronomy (by a Wanna-be Chef) which can be found at http://akreeats.blogspot.com
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, Asian inspired dishes, lot of vegetables!
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triumphs are dishes that the kiddo gives a thumbs up: Pan roasted lobster, miso soup, meatball Stroganoff, broiled salmon, seared tuna with wasabi butter, she-crab soup and I make a mean prime rib.
My cooking tragedies
Slow cooker root vegetables for Thanksgiving-total flop! Recent disaster with an easy fudge recipe.

Watercress Soup
I was out of milk so used fat free 1/2 & 1/2 instead. My watercress was very, very spicy and kind of horseradish flavored but this mellowed in cooking. Very pretty and tasty soup.

Chicken Breasts Pierre
I want to meet you Nancy! I have read this recipe over & over again and was hesitant about chicken and tomatoes. I finally made this the other day and wow, we were so impressed. My husband is in love with this dish; I think it's his new favorite. Thanks a million for sharing this recipe! :-)

Baked Potato Salad
My daughter has always turned her nose up at potato salad. But, I made this and she loves it. We're taking it to our block party this afternoon.
