About this Cook
I joined an organic produce co-op in grad school and have been cooking regularly ever since. Lately I have been cooking more for my parents, one of whom is far more picky than is necessary.
My favorite things to cook
local, organic meats, dairy and produce
My cooking triumphs
Any time a dish and the chosen wine pair perfectly - that's a triumph. Or, if my father asks for seconds, that's a triumph too. I've gotten pretty good at salmon (not like it's hard!), balsamic vinaigrette, asparagus, and venturing into lamb lately.
My cooking tragedies
I am absolutely perfect at cooking and have never messed up a thing. Ha!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
I'm giving this 5 stars because it not only tastes great but it so very easy to make. Just dump everything in the slow cooker and walk away! I'm a Texan living in Scotland where canned enchilada sauce is not available, so I use an enchilada mix packet. I just add that to the other spices and sprinkle it over everything. For the liquid, I combine tomato sauce (called passata in the UK) and the chicken broth. I like a thicker soup so I only put in enough liquid to just cover the ingredients. Great recipe! Thank you!

Peanut Butter Chip Cookies II
Tasty and easy but nothing especially memorable. I think I'll try a different recipe next time.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This is super easy and tastes great. My fiancee loved it and I will make it again and again. We live in Scotland and can't get the refrigerated biscuit dough I'm familiar with in America. I used a British dumpling mix similar to bisquick. (Dumplings are popular in all types of stew here and the mix is readily available). I let my dumplings cook in the crock pot for an hour and also used chicken broth instead of water. Super tasty! Thank you for this recipe. It's on my short list of favorties!
