Beef Bourguignon
Deanna, January 2009
About this Cook
I'm a mom of 3 boys (4, if you count my husband), and I cook nightly. I need some new recipes--ones that are quick and easy!
My favorite things to cook
Crunchy chicken (my kid's favorite), chocolate chip cookies, baked chicken, tacos, hamburgers, omelets, fondue
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each of my children have deemed "Crunchy Chicken" as their favorite meal. So, this is their special meal on all their special days. I always make my husband beef fondue on his birthday and usually on our anniversary. My oldest son, 18, loves me to make my chocolate chip cheesecake for his birthday cake.
My cooking triumphs
Stumbling across the Crunchy Chicken recipe! Figuring out how to make won tons like my mom used to. Finding Allrecipes!!!!!!!!!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Aiding and abetting my mother-in-law with a dish one time that included Thousand Island Dressing and sauerkraut! She and I like it, but the men........ Oh, and let's not forget the time I added GARLIC to my husband's omelet. OR, heaven forbid I should alter in ANY way, one of my tried and true recipes!!

Slow Cooker Lasagna II
I thought this was pretty good, but it was a little dry for my tastes. My husband liked it more than my regular lasagna, my son liked it less. Made it exactly like the recipe. Had to peel the cheese off the top and dispose of it...was like leather! If I make it again, I will add cheese near the end and cook it less time....maybe 6-7 hours?

Chicken Alfredo
I was looking for something to make tonight with what I had in the kitchen. I knew I had chicken, and my first thought was chicken alfredo...I did not have broccoli or zucchini, but I did have a bag of frozen red pepper and chopped mushroom pieces, chicken, cream cheese and butter! Made it just like the recipe says, minus the green veggies...Was DELICIOUS! Thanks for making my night.

Saffron Rice
I made this for 2 of my husband's co-workers that came to Texas for a month from India. I, for one, am in love with this rice! It is so fragrant and delicious. The guys from India said it was good, too, although they were so polite about everything and had nothing negative to say the entire time they were here! :) Thanks for the recipe! I will be making it again!
