Chocolate Mint Cake
Shrimp, Garlic and PASTA YUM
These taste even better than they look!
About this Cook
I recently moved to Austin, TX, then got married shortly thereafter. I use my husband as a guinnea pig for many of the dishes, but he's never seemed to mind. :)
My favorite things to cook
Breads, lots of chicken dishes, souvlaki, cakes, pies, pastas, however I always try to find a healthy way to spin them. I bought myself a kitchen-aid for Christmas 2007 and have been a baking machine ever since!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in Utah and had a lot of the traditional hearty American cooking. Meat loaf, fried chicken, casseroles, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Some of the best things I've made have been greek cusine, chicken and pasta with interesting sauces.
My cooking tragedies
I used to think that I had never had a tragedy until I decided to make corned beef in a crockpot. At the time I had a long commute and was gone for 12 hours but figured that the longer time would just make it that much more tender and delicious! WRONG! It turned the meat into a dry brick, the cabbage disintegrated. We ordered pizza that night!

Sage Pork Chops
These are so good and so delicious. Very easy, but they do take a bit of time to actually cook. We have fresh sage in our garden that is perfect to use. Also, use a can of beef broth instead of the boullion. I personally prefer the taste and ease.

Slow Cooker Tipsy Chicken
I just threw everything into the crock pot. I did not do it in the saucepan first, and I did not cook the chicken ahead of time. It wasn't needed, and it turned out great!

Carrot Cake III
I felt like this was missing something, and I made it exactly as written. The cake itself needed something, and was very oily. If I were to give this recipe another try (which I probably wont) I might use applesauce in place of some of the oil as some other reviews suggested. Also, the frosting was WAY too sweet and didn't taste like cream cheese enough. Use another recipe for the frosting.
