About this Cook
Southern transplant now living in gorgeous, picturesque Vermont with my husband and two kitties. My husband and I both love to cook. We're pretty healthy eaters most of the time-- though, of course, our *very* favorite things to make are somewhat naughty. We're big on using fresh, organic, and local ingredients, and cooking things from scratch whenever possible.

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie
Easy enough and tasted fine. Didn't blow my socks off or anything, but pretty good.

Chocolate Rum Balls I
So I gave it 3 because I changed the recipe around a lot. Instead of rum (because I don't like rum), I used bourbon. And instead of walnuts, I used toasted pecans. I added a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp allspice. I also cut down on the amount of sugar in the "rum" balls. I like them just fine-- They certainly are boozy, though. I'll be interested in tasting them in a few days, after the flavors have a chance to meld and the booziness mellows. If not, then I'm sure I'd make these again, but I might put in 1/4 cup of booze rather than 1/2 cup.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Instead of chicken breasts, I use skinless boneless chicken thighs instead-- it's more flavorful (just sear in a pan first). I add a diced sweet potato into the mix too. And instead of using canned soup (very high in salt and just... well, gross), I use chicken stock, 1/4 cup of apple cidar vinegar, and a few dashes of worcester sauce.
