About this Cook
I am a full-time single mom to two boys, 4 and 14. I work in the health field and have finally gotten the nerve to become formerly trained in Cullinary Arts. I begin the program in January.
My favorite things to cook
There are too many to list, but what I find I go to the most when I really want to relax and give my family a satisfying meal...Well, Soup of course!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and I always prepare our holiday meals together for the whole family. We've done this since I was young, and now, it's almost like a dance. We move together and know what the next step is without even thinking about it. There is no one I would rather cook with, other than my boys who are begining to hold their own in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
My latest was creating an Orange Cream Cheesecake for my best friend. She loves this orange cream salad that our local deli sells and I created a cheesecake with all of the flavors for her. She loved it! And since, I have had friends make the recipe with the same results.
My cooking tragedies
I thought that since we could make beer can chickens...why couldn't I figure out a way to use 2 beer cans and cook a whole turkey breast I'd had in the freezer. I made a brine with fresh herbs and vegetables, soaked the turkey breast over night. I was so excited about my idea. After quite a bit of struggling, I was able to get the breast balanced over 2 beer cans side by side, place foil all around my grill as the turkey was too high for it to close. I grilled it with indirect heat, finally, when the meat thermometer said it was ready I was egar to enjoy my creation......Well, the turkey was so salty it was unedible, I threw away the wood chips (obviously before they were completely cool)and my garbage can started on fire. During the commotion,I burnt the pot of mashed potatoes as I had thought I'd turned the new electric stove off but instead had the pan of potatoes on high...ruining my pan and of course the mashed potatoes. Needless to say, we ordered pizza that night!

Tater Tot Casserole
Have made 4 times (including right now) in the past 3 months. This time a double batch! The family loves this and gobbles it up fast! I make extra as we love the leftovers! They will even eat it for breakfast. The recipe is perfect "as is" but we do add veggies (frozen corn, peas, green beans etc) for a complete meal. With cheese added at the end or not, it's so comforting! I always use almost the whole bag of tater tots to cover the entire top. I could make this once a week and the kiddos wouldn't tire of it! Thanks for a great recipe that makes everyone happy!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II
This was a great recipe! I made the following changes: Spread a thin layer of dijon mustard on chicken before placing the ham and cheese in it. I also dipped in egg wash and bread crumbs and baked. The sauce was absolutely amazing. I included a photo, of the breaded version with cream sauce! I will definately make this again!

Baked Apricot Chicken
We've made this twice and a nice change in our dinner rotation. Served over rice. If it seems too "saucy" just bring sauce to a boil and add cornstarch/water to thicken, lovely gravy perfect over rice or noodles would be good too! It's a Winner!
