About this Cook
I'm a restaurant brat, growing up the industry I became a professional cook, baker and caterer. Gave it all up to stay home with my kids. They have been the hardest customers to please by far and the toughest food critics! We recently moved from the West Coast over the mountains to Cattle Country!

Raspberry Sour Cream Pie
Delish!! I used fresh raspberries that I tossed in a little cornstarch and sugar and added it to the pie before adding the cream mixture. It all fit into a 10" deep dish pie crust, but I only used two thirds of the crumble topping. I used oats in the crumble topping rather than nuts as well. Because I used one deep dish pie crust I baked it at 350f degrees for 55 minutes. The tartness of the raspberries went perfect with the sweet topping and creamy texture of the sour cream filling. I liked it better the next day cold out of the fridge then at room temperature after it baked and cooled.

Shoyu Chicken
This is good. However I would not discard the marinade, I would reduce it on the stove then baste it on the chicken while grilling. I opted to cook it in the marinade on the stove, adobo style. The sauce was great over rice as well. I'll have to try baking it in the oven with the marinade when it's cooler out next time. Instead of the tsp. of cayenne pepper and tsp. of chili flakes I used two tsps. of sriracha sauce. It was not too spicy that way and the whole family loved it, even the kids!

Whipped Banana "Ice Cream"
I have a high powered blender and I could not get the frozen bananas to blend. I used the stick it comes with to push the bananas down into the blade--they would crush a bit then get stuck, so I had to add a little milk just to get things moving. Perhaps it would work better in a food processor? Next time I would add the bananas partially frozen (so they are not hard as a rock!) and blend that way then re-freeze. I added a spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder and the kids said it tasted like a Frosty from Wendy's! :)
