About this Cook
I am a stay @ home mother of 3(all 5 and under), wife to an amazingly loving husband. I went to culinary school for 2 yrs and learned ALOT there and have just been applying what I learned to what I cook, etc. now. My family, friends, neighbors are all my test tasters and not one has ran away yet ;o) hehe
My favorite things to cook
what pleases my family, whether it be tastefully major healthy or artery-cloggingly good. I love to serve my family a life filled with great food
My favorite family cooking traditions
hmmm well there is always the treats I send out around the fall/winter (shipping baked goods, esp. truffles while it is cold out is the best time!). during the dreary time of the cold season a package full of homemade goodies always puts a smile on one faces
My cooking triumphs
learning to cook n no longer being picky! those are very general but that is where a new door really opened for me.
My cooking tragedies
well, when you have cooked as much as I have you only begin to win many after you have lost several as well! Learn from your mistakes and improve on where you excel :o)

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie
When it comes down to it, it doesn't matter if this is the REAL recipe or not. This is an amazing cookie! Especially if you bake them @ the 300 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Come out just perfect. I also use a dash of cream of tartar with any cookie I bake. It makes the dough form a 'shell' around itself as it bakes and makes the 'perfect from the bakery' texture everyone strives so hard to get. Little trick I learned through the years (and the grapevine of many a baker hehe)

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
We make this dish many times since first discovering it. What is so nice about it is the versatility it can have. I recommend what j03sugar says about butterflying and dipping the breasts, most def. is worth the extra 2 min it takes. After parties we often will have veggie dips (i.e. Beau Monte dip, spinach, etc.) left over and we will use these in place of straight up mayo to help clear out the fridge and give the cook a break from being in the kitchen so long the night(s) before. Excellent classic. Recommend to anyone. (psst great one for kids to make up!)

Fluffy French Toast
this was JUST right... very good recipe...made it with our homemade Challah bread (french toast always needs a sturdy bread to carry the batter) this is going to be a long-time family favorite.. thank you very much Bonnie!
