About this Cook
I'm a vegetarian and aspiring vegan. Mostly for health reasons, but the ethical issues are important, too. Read "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman or either of the books by John Robbins (son of cofounder of Baskin and Robbins). All very enlightening books.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things and explore healthier alternatives to family favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love it when everyone pitches in toghether to fix a meal.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a victory whenever I make something that appeals to everyone in my family: my health-nut hubby, my carniverous, veggie-phobic teenage son, and my fickle 5 year old step daughter. :-)
My cooking tragedies
Potato Tacos. A recipe I found here with rave reviews. I must have done something wrong. they turned out terrible. My family still teases me about them on a regular basis.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken
I really liked this and so did my hubby! I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I used two breasts (roughly one pound), frozen mixed pepper strips, flat leaf parsley instead of cilantro, and medium salsa. Other than that, the only other change I made to the recipe was I followed the suggestion of others and added a layer of corn on top of the black beans. I think it was a nice addition. When I make this again, I will probably add more veggies (celery, carrots, onion), but I like to make a recipe as close to "as written" the first time as possible. Thank you for sharing!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore
This was very yummy and I love recipes I can throw in the crockpot and forget. I only used 2 breasts, a 32 oz jar of Classico Tomato Basil sauce, 1 green and 1 red pepper, as that's what I had on hand, no mushrooms (didn't have any), but substituted sliced black olives, 1 yellow onion, and 2 cloves of garlic. It cooked on high for about 5.5 hours. The chicken was very tender and kind of fell apart while stirring and dishing, but that was fine. I will make this again and will definitely include olives whether I have shrooms or not!

Soy and Garlic Marinated Chicken
Yummy and easy! I added 1 tsp of ginger and a hearty splash of olive oil to the marinade. I let it sit all day while I was at work and just popped it in the oven that night. Very yummy. I baked it for 45 min at 350. Thank you for the great, simple recipe!
