Ms Delicious - Chicken Noodle Casserole I
About this Cook
I'm a 20 something year old mom and I have many interest. I like creative activities, and cooking has recently become a passion of mine. I used to not enjoy cooking and looked at it as a chore. I have been cooking regular everyday things for years that satisfied, but didn't thrill. But now I'm getting into cooking as a(n unexpected) hobby that I actually enjoy (I never thought I would). I really like reading and reviewing new recipes and enjoy putting dishes and meals together now. I also like receiving feedback from my dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that makes people smile. New dishes. Foods that are not only tasty, but are also beautiful or interesting to look at. Desserts. Cupcakes with my son and daughter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking for gatherings, holidays and special occasions. It gives me a reason to try new and exciting recipes and show off my growing skills. My favorite family cooking tradition is cooking with my two children. We always have fun, and I enjoy teaching them things that will be with them forever. They really enjoy it as well.
My cooking triumphs
Making Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family 3 years counting. The first, I had a seafood themed Thanksgiving that went over well. The next two were traditional turkey and stuffing type meals, but i had exciting recipes that really amazed and made the day really memorable.
My cooking tragedies
woah, too many to count. There has been many a time when the smoke detector got a workout when I was in the kitchen. There has been many times when egg shells have became the unintended mystery ingredient that added "texture" and crunch in a dish. There has been many times where I have designated a meal "Cajun" due to its... darkened exterior. I can go on, but, I have learned and have become a better cook from allll of these... tragedies.

Monkey Bread I
Didn't have walnuts on hand, but raisins were enough. Added a little almond & vanilla extract to butter and brown sugar mixture. Will try this recipe with walnuts next time. Taste wonderful! Son and daughter did 90% of the work (I just did stove-top, hot liquid and oven steps). They also give their approval. Good with coffee, or vanilla ice cream.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I
Excellent! Boiled the chicken and noodles with chicken broth instead of just plain water. Added a quarter of an onion (chopped) and seasonings when boiling chicken. Added poultry seasoning and garlic powder (along with the pepper and salt) to cream of soup mix. Mixed in a bag of frozen mixed veggies (corn, green beans, chopped carrots), and a couple of garlic cloves to mixture, also put in a small can of sliced mushrooms & stems. In addition to the buttered Ritz crackers, I added some Parmesan cheese to the topping along with some extra shredded cheese blend that I had in the fridge. This gave it a wonderful cheesy flavor. The whole house loved it. I was surprised to see the kids wanting more. They said it is one of their favorites now and wants me to make it all the time now. With my additions to recipe, I'll give it 5 stars. perfect comfort food.

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
I didn't freeze the cheese beforehand, but having it chilled in the fridge worked fine. I mixed in my garlic powder, Italian seasoning, a little salt and some black pepper in the Italian bread crumbs. I double battered my chilled cheese and then put in my deep fryer at 350 degrees for about 45 seconds or so. Also, I cooked about 4 at a time to keep them from sticking to each other. When I first attempt to remove a cheese stick from the basket, it started to fall a bit limp, so before i gathered the others, I just let it sit for a few minutes before transferring them to our serving dish. Doing this allowed the cheese to cool just right and let it keep its form when handling, yet still be melty in the middle. I may try freezing cheese for about 30 minutes before i cook them next time to see what happens. Also, next time i will combine all dry ingredients to save a step. overall, nice and easy recipe and will definitely make this again.
