For me, the best gifts are homemade gifts.  It's not that I'm so rich I can go out an buy myself anything I want, but a homemade gift has no price, it's priceless.  So when put together a list of the top 20 gifts to give for a #HomemadeHoliday, I jumped onboard.I absolutely… MORE

About this Cook
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!

Autumn Butternut and Kale Salad with Maple Vinaigrette
I did not like this recipe. The butternut squash was too mushy, and the kale ended up being way to wilted for a good salad. It also had too much red onion. I was disappointed, since I was looking forward to what sounded like a delicious salad and I made it for my family's Thanksgiving potluck. Oh well. The vinaigrette was delicious.

Morning Delight Quiche
Delicious and easy. I made a couple of changes due to my family's taste. I added 1/2 onion and a sprinkle of garlic powder to the crust and used red bell pepper instead of sun dried tomatoes and spinach instead of cilantro. You could really use any veggies and herbs you prefer. The whole family enjoyed this breakfast for dinner!

Banana Nut Bread by PAM(R)
I love banana bread, and this was an awesome recipe for it. I also adore Pam Spray, makes things so much easier in the kitchen! I omitted the nuts because I didn't have any and Hubby doesn't like them.
