We bought a food dehydrator a week or so ago.  DH and I decided it would be a good idea to start preserving our own food and to build up a decent emergency food supply.  We opted for the giant 9 tray Excalibur model with adjustable thermostat, since we were able to pick up a refurbished unit… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom to one and we have a house full of pets. I just picked up sewing about a year ago and that, along with cooking are my hobbies right now.
My favorite things to cook
DESSERT!!! No seriously, I am known to make some really kick a$$ desserts, but I enjoy cooking all kinds of things. I just started grilling recently and I like that a lot, there's a lot less clean up when I'm done.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a cake look pretty to save my life. They usually taste great but a horrendous to look at.

Cajun Pork Chops
This is probably my favorite way that I've ever had prok chops. I added double of everything except flour and paprika because we like things extra spicy. I double dipped them in the flour mixture (flour, milk, flour) and allowed them to rest for about 30 minutes before cooking them. I cooked them in an iron skillet with only 1 TB of olive oil, but I did spray the pan liberally with Pam first so it would not soak up all of the oil. They cooked for about 6 minutes on each side for a 1/2 inch thick chop. Wonderful!

Flat Iron Steak with Three Pepper Rub
This is very falvorful and nice and spicy. I rubbed 3 thin cut top loin steaks with this about 8 hours before I cooked them. I cooked them in a hot cast iron skillet for about 4 minutes per side and they came out wonderful. The next night, I used the leftover rub to make chicken for quesadillas, again it was a wonderful dinner.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread
I made this tonight to serve with turkey and vegetable soup. It's a really great recipe! My whole family reallyenjoyed it. I only made a few minor changes: 1) I halved the recipe, but used a whole egg and a TB or two of extra flour 2)Honey instead of sugar 3) For the glaze I used one egg white beaten with 2 TB of melted margarine. I baked at 350 for about 28 minutes and coverd it with foil while it was cooling. PERFECT! Even better with a little honey drizzled on top.
