About this Cook
I work a lot and like to make meals that can be reheated or frozen and enjoyed the week through without having to eat the same thing every night. I am always looking for good ideas from folks with similar lifestyles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite ritual is the seasoning for the Thanksgiving turkey. Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. My mother swears by these and when she can't exactly remember, she sings the Simon and Garfunkel song to remind her.

Crixxie's Ranch Chicken Nuggets
Thanks for sharing the idea of blending egg and dressing. It made a great coating. I used frsh parm. How about Blue Cheese with hot sauce?

Miso Braised Pork
I followed the recipe exactly, using low sodium soy sauce. This was not too salty, nor too fatty. I did simmer it for the last 20 mins uncovered, but the sauce thickened up as it cooled anyway. I served it with Kings Hawaiian rolls as an alternative proten at a sushi party. All 5 lbs were devoured. I barely had to clean the dutch oven. Perfect and amazing!

Andy's Spicy Green Chile Pork
Discard the liquid?! I pureed it in a blender and poured it back over the meat. I also added a couple of slices of bacon and some fresh green chilis to the pot at the start. Yum!
