About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mother who enjoys making comfort food for my family. sitting together at the family dinner table is very important to me.
My favorite things to cook
Lo Mien, Pork fried rice, Roast chicken, Pork-chops and stuffing, Egg bakes for brunch, Home made pizza and Chicken pot pies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
every Christmas eve we make a variety of appetizers for our family to eat when we get home from the Christmas evening church service. everyone picks one or two they like and we all work together to create the various dips, wings, etc. My favorite is baked Brie in puffed pastry with caramelized garlic, walnuts and honey.....mmmmmmm!
My cooking tragedies
accidentally hitting the clean oven button on my new oven, locking two pans of baked enchiladas in there. My son brilliantly thought of turning off the power for the oven at the breaker box.....which allowed the oven to reset and unlock. we had some very blackened crispy enchiladas.

Classic Rice Pilaf
Excellent flavor!! It could easily be 5 full stars for me, however, 35 minutes wasnt enough time to fully cook the rice in my oven. It was still crunchy. I will be making it again because the recipe has so much wonderful flavor (I made it with the saffron), I will just be cooking it for 45-50 minutes and double checking the done-ness of the rice. I did notice that there was plenty of liquid to keep cooking the rice, but didn't realize that it was not done until I took a bite of it at the dinner table. Too late to fix it because everything else I had been cooking was done. I had it all perfectly timed, but my DH liked the flavor complexity so much he wants me to make it again, soon. :-)

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms II
Prepared them for a holiday appetizer buffet....only two mushrooms were eaten. Not what I hoped for, really disappointed.

Classic Macaroni Salad
I enjoyed this easy recipe for a Mac salad that was so tasty. I used salad dressing (the white creamy, "whipped" kind) as half of the mayo to get that extra tangy flavor I remember from my grandma's recipe. I skipped the celery, and added a couple of hard boiled eggs. Even after a couple of days in the refrigerator it was delicious! Will make it again and again, great with a burger and fresh fruit for a summer dinner!
