Well, this weekend I tried out the Al Fresco Tortellini Soup.  I didn't have the Sweet Italian sausage, so I used Chipotle.  It would have been better with the Sweet Italian.  I'm a spice wimp (I know, how can that be for a home grown New Mexico girl, my parents and uncle (a chile farmer in… MORE

Disclaimer:I have never prepared anything breaded before (does that excuse my big mistake to follow?  You decide).I decided to prepare my chicken (and a tilapia filet because my daughter is a pescitarian – a vegetarian who eats fish and seafood, but not any other meat) early –around noon on… MORE

I just wanted to take a moment to say how grateful I am to live in a nation where there are people who sacrifice their lives for others.  First responders on 9/11 not only died, but lived with the consequences of their heroic actions.  First responders all over the country continue to give… MORE

About Me
About the ONLY thing I don't like about cooking is the HEAT!! I'm not sure why, but I get very easily overheated. I usually sit while cooking, and have a fan blowing directly on me if available. I've been thinking about renaming myself - thehotchef - lol. It's a little better in winter, but I live in Albuquerque, NM - it never gets REALLY cold here, and my body just seems to want to overheat when I get busy in the kitchen! That's one of the reasons I like to divide my kitchen work into 2 or 3 parts at a time. One day I chop the veggies, the next day I roast the veggies, and the 3rd day I put together the lasagna and bake, for example.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, black bottom banana cream pie, fruit salad, beef stroganoff. I like to try something new for Thanksgiving every year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's tea ring, macoroni/potato salad, bread, BRINING the Thanksgiving turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Best pies ever!
My cooking tragedies
My husband likes his own cooking better than mine! So much so that he is willing to make dinner for our family everyday - that's just fine with me!
