About this Cook
I love to cook. I have been cooking for my husband for more than 13 years now. I enjoy cooking for family and friends. I strive to be as good a cook as my mom.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with new recipes so I guess it depends on my mood. Sometimes baking, sometimes casseroles, sometimes meats, etc. I cook chicken a lot. I like it baked, fried, grilled, in soups...just about any way you can cook it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together with family for all the major holidays and having wonderful meals. No one can ever go hungry with all the food that's prepared.
My cooking triumphs
One that stands out in my mind is the first meal I made my husband (my boyfriend at the time). It was my first time making fried chicken and it turned out great. He loved it. I guess the saying is true that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. :)
My cooking tragedies
Learning to cook on an electric stove (I was taught on a gas stove). My poor husband had a lot of burnt meals when we first got married. :(

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce
I made just the dill sauce to serve with salmon. It was delicious! I will definitely make it again and again. Thanks for the recipe!

No Time to Cook Chicken
We just finished eating this recipe for lunch. It was very good. I made some changes because of the reviews I read but it is a great base recipe. I cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of celery and added a can of mushrooms. I added a little milk to thin the sauce a bit. I also added some poultry seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder. The last half hour I added the sour cream and some frozen peas (broccoli would be good too but I didn't have any). I served it over egg noodles. I am already planning to make this again and use a can of Veg-all for the veggies and serve it over biscuits.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon
I fixed this for dinner tonight and it was really good. I did drain some of the bacon grease and sauted about 1/2 cup diced onion with the garlic but other than that followed the recipe to a T. My husband liked it so that is a plus. I will definitely make this again. It still needs a little something...maybe some kind of cheese or some spices for more I will experiment.
