About this Cook
I'm newly married and love having my husband around to use as my "lab rat" :) He loves trying new recipes and I've got many to still try out with my recipe book collection. I'm in my first year of teaching Foods and Culinary Art classes at a high school and somedays it seems like I'm learning just as much as them!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all kinds of sweets and goodies. If it will give you a sugar rush than I like to make it. I also enjoy quick casseroles and working with yeast products.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas we make oodles of cut out cookies and frost them!
My cooking triumphs
I've mastered making 18 buffet style pans of homemade mac and cheese with 20 high school students in a matter of 1 1/2 hours!
My cooking tragedies
I've learned to never preheat an oven when a pan of bars with a plastic lid is already in there. You get one gooey mess and even a few flames if you're lucky!

Fancy Chicken Salad
This is a flavorful, attractive chicken salad. I've even served it to a group men on croissants and they loved it too (after later telling me they thought croissants sandwiches was "lady" food and it would never fill them up) Only change, add about 1 tsp. of white sugar for just a little sweetness with the dill and vinegar.

Chewy Chocolate Cookies I
Very yummy! I actually make these cookies into bars for catering. I add about 1/2-1 cup extra flour like others stated and pat the dough into a jelly roll pan with a rubber spatula or lightly wet fingers. Everyone loves them and they don't last long!

Strawberry Pineapple Chicken Bites
I teach a Foods class in a high school and one of my kitchen lab groups chose to make this recipe. Like stated before it's sweet with a little spice and tastes like sweet and sour chicken. You get a nice reddish glaze. Would go really well with rice and some stir fried veggies.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
