About this Cook
I love to experiment in the Kitchen. If my husband tells me "You can make that again" the recipe is definately a keeper.
My favorite things to cook
I have just found my new best friend in the slow cooker. I have also discovered that I am a pretty decent bread baker, so right now, my favorite thing to make is bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any cooking traditions. Although my Mom does make an awesome meatloaf (Hubby prefers hers over mine, even if he doesn't say so out loud) :0
My cooking triumphs
No triumphs really, just enjoy spending time in the kitchen playing with recipes until they suit my family. Although I have become quite good at bread making..thank you to all the people that submit bread recipes!!
My cooking tragedies
I made a cream cheese/garlic sauce and it turned into wallpapaper paste. Had to make a few changes, and now it is one of our favorite meals.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary
Great recipe. I used thyme instead of rosemary though...personal preference. I too added thyme, onion, garlic, celery and carrots to the cavity. Used an oil rub on the outside with more thyme/poultry seasoning. I did use about 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup wine in the bottom, raised the chicken out of mixture with a rack. Did two small chickens. 1 for dinner, the other for soup. Amazing homemade broth when you make stock with veggies from inside birds. THE BEST stock I have ever made. Thanks for post.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls
These tasted fantastic. As per other reviews and personal taste did not use the mint or the cilantro. I added bean sprouts, other than that followed exactly. I also used the sauces, must haves :) I find that boiling the noodles makes them soggy, so I soak the noodles in very warm water for 10 minutes and they always come out perfect. I do this with all rice noodles. Excellent recipe, thank you
