About this Cook
As I get older, I'm starting to really enjoy cooking for my family and friends. I seem to have good instincts with altering recipes and I love learning new tricks in the kitchen. When I got interested in genealogy, I also decided to build a cookbook of family recipes - especially after my Mom passed away. It has been a labor of love and I've got the rest of my family working on it now too.

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies
Really loved this recipe. Stuck mostly to the script but added 2 tablespoons of butter to the quinoa once it was cooked. Swapped out the garlic scapes for cloves since that's all I had. Swapped the zucchini for 16 oz. of sliced mushrooms. Hubby loved it and says this goes into the rotation, which is a coveted spot in my kitchen :-)

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin
I'm not sure what went wrong but 1 packet of brown gravy mixed with 2 cups of wine and juice do not equal "thickened" - at least not in my kitchen, regardless how long I stirred in. So I ended up with wine-soaked pork in a lot of juice. However, hubby said the flavor was "good" - just an odd consistency.

Oliebollen (Dutch Doughnuts)
This is the second year I've made this recipe for my Dutch husband on New Years. He swears it's just as good as his Dad made while he was growing up in Holland. A few tips - one package of active dry yeast works the same as the fresh yeast, and I also reduce the salt to 1 tsp. I like to do have the batch with cinnamon mixed in with the powdered sugar. Make sure to finely chop the apples - they should only add flavor, not a lot of texture. Lastly, the balls need to be at least golf ball size - so use an ice-cream scoop to drop them (gently) in the oil.

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
