About this Cook
My name is Jennfer. I like to cook when I have the time... and I love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making hummus, pasta salad, guacamole, french dips, enchiladas, chili and egg casserole to name a few. I get an itch to bake on rare occasion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, I grew up with my dad and he didn't cook much except Hamburger Helper :). My Italian grandfather used to let me help him make homemade pasta, olive salad and chili.
My cooking triumphs
People love my pumpkin pie (from real pumpkins!) and my chili. My hummus and olive salad are pretty awesome as well. Recently I've made good tilapia and a greek chicken pasta I found on this site that were both excellent.
My cooking tragedies
Giant chocolate chip cookie that caught on fire. Cabbage soup.

Party-Size Greek Couscous Salad
Great idea! I made this with Tabouleh instead of Couscous (more substantial and healthier). Scaled down to 7 servings (one package of Tabouleh). The mix already had lots of spices, so I omitted the parsley. Also left out peppers and tomatoes since hubby doesn't like them. Made the night before and put in fridge for hubby to eat for his lunch the next day. He ate it with some gyro meat and some homemade hummus and veggie chips. He said it was Awesome :)

Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken
Just average. Kind of had a sogginess to it after breading it and then adding all that liquid afterward. Overall flavor was just okay... kind of reminded me of Chicken Helper.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake
Easy and delicious! It looks pretty too. Simply sifted confectioner's sugar over it as a finishing touch. Used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips and 1/4cup milk combined with 1/4cup Kahula instead of a whole 1/2c of the liquor. Also dusted buttered pan with Nestle cocoa (had some hot cocoa packets laying around) instead of flour. Baked for 55 min (5 min less than recommended), and it came out perfect. However, I have a small oven and it may take less time than a conventional.
