Anything but salad. Love to eat it, hate to make it- wonder why.

Menudo for New Years Day. Irish for St Pats, my husband was born and raised in Cork.
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate cream pie that never set, made it about age 11. My Dad still ate it! Still brings tears to my eyes.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce
Not impressed and I really thought I would be based on the reviews. Only change was to add a little white wine (as suggested). We ate it but I have no enthusiasm to do it again.

Berry Rhubarb Pie
I threw in handfuls of berries I had , raspberries, blueberies, blackberries and 1 bag of thawed rhubarb with its juice. I didnt let it sit overnight just put it in the oven. And I used a store crust. Excellent. definitly a keeper

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce
this is a goody. I stuck to the recipe except I threw in about 3 tbsp pinot grigio to the mushrooms( all the wine left in the bottle) . I also covered it and left it on the stovetop about 15 min instead of the oven. I used chicken thighs and it was delicious. My 5 year old and hubber loved it. Served it with fresh asparagus and capellini

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
