Rosemary Chicken Rollatini
About this Cook
I started cooking after my parents got divorced and my mom went to work full time. Talk about trial and error. After a while I would just figure stuff out and make things up and everyone seemed to enjoy it. When I went to college a few of my friends would ask if I would help them with a "college fancy" dinner before the various formals. It became fun, sort of like a wanna be catering service. I like cooking. It totally relaxes me. I love giving home baked christmas items around the holidays, it's more appreciated I believe. Lets get Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! Cept a pancake. I could make just about anything except a pancake. Can you believe that mess?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Kwaacho's. Short for Kwaanza Nacho's. Triscuits (my favorite are the rosemary & Olive oil), beef-stick summer sausage, pepper jack and monterey jack cheese, bake for about 10 min on 350. *just happened one Christmas Eve and its been Tradition each year.
My cooking triumphs
Triple Layer Peppermint Torte Cake. I have a secret spaghetti sauce mixture that my friends are dying to get outta me.Homemade macaroni and cheese. I really need to get into the habit of measuring things, because when I pass recipes on, I dont have the amounts needed. I'm pretty good at eyeballing. *** Learning to under cook meats because they continue to cook when off the fire.*** ***Seasoning should ENHANCE natural flavors, not down them out***
My cooking tragedies
Pancakes, I tell ya. I just don't do them well. Everyone once in a while when adjusting an order it won't come out quite right, but it'll taste better than it looks. Also sometimes...."every once in a while" i might create a burnt offering unto the cooking Gods ;)

Potato Latkes I
I started using this recipe last year when my daughter and I decided to to learn about Hannukah and the festival of lights. We fell in love with Latkes. We use this recipe often. To season them I use 1/2 ts of season salt and add 1 cube of garlic bullion dissolved in the egg mixture. I also used 3-4 cups of shredded potatoes and still have egg mixture left afterwards. I've also added minced garlic and cilantro. We use it quite often for side dishes or by themselves. It's made me excited to learn more about different cultures and foods!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
I took this recipe to a work party and was flooded with recipe request. It was so think with just using 1/2 and 1/2, I can't imagine putting heavy cream in it. It's AWESOME and restaurant quality. A new winter favorite. I'll be taking it to the family party next week.
