About this Cook
I work at an animal shelter.
My favorite things to cook

My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother used to cook mashed parsnips & carrots. I didn't find out it's an Irish recipe till I went back to meet my relatives.
My cooking triumphs
Just being able to get a good meal cooked after a hard day of work.
My cooking tragedies
The time I forgot to put the sugar in the pumpkin pie. It looked beautiful, but tasted awful.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
I followed the recipe, except I used sauteed yellow onions, and I put bacon in half the potatoes. It's a great recipe!

T's Easy Chicken
Tracy, this is a great recipe! I was looking for something that was quick & easy, and called for things I had on hand. I only had canned Mexican tomatoes with lime & cilantro, so I skipped the lemon juice, and added fresh chopped cilantro at the end of cooking. I followed other's suggestions, and cut the chicken in smaller pieces and added fresh garlic and more mushrooms & onions. I also cooked the chicken with the onions, then added the mushrooms, finally adding the tomatoes. I served mashed potatoes along side this dish, and there was nothing left over. It was a huge hit with the whole family! Next time I'll either try it with regular or Italian flavored canned tomatoes.

Clone of a Cinnabon
I've made this recipe many times since it was posted. I found that if you heat the milk for a minute in the microwave, it is just the right temperature to melt the softened butter. I use only 4 cups of bread flour, but other than that I don't change the recipe. I baked a batch of these cinnamon rolls on Thursday, and they went so quickly that I had to make another batch on Friday. I think the quantity of frosting depends on what you like. My teenage daughter thought that the regular amount of frosting was too much, I thought it was just right. It is my favorite recipe, and a lot of people ask for it. The bread machine helps make the recipe a lot easier than doing it by hand.
