About this Cook
42 year old happily married, stay at home mother of 3, 2 daughters aged 20 and 9, my son is 13. At 16 I was responsible for nightly family dinners as my parents were divorced and my mother worked full time. I still really enjoy cooking after all these years. I prefer to cook meals rather than bake sweets. I love Food Network and the Taste of Home magazine. I own alot of cookbooks, but I find myself coming to this site more and more often.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, anything Italian. I really would try anything once!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids LOVE to Fondue!! I bought an electric pot, so much better than messing with sterno. We just do an oil fondue and fry shrimp, steak, chicken, veggies. I prepare several dipping sauces. My 9 year old picky daughter never eats better!! We try to do this once a month and will keep it a tradition indefinately!!
My cooking triumphs
Although I do get alot of compliments on my cooking, the most rewarding was this summer when I hosted a barbeque for my in-laws and 8 of their closest friends to celebrate my father-in-laws retirement. They were all so complimentary and refered to the meal as better than any they could get in a restaurant. I prepared a spinach/artichoke dip, stuffed jalapenos, cornbread salad, brined/barbequed chicken, beef brisket, baked beans. I am my own toughest critic, and I will say everything turned out perfectly!!
My cooking tragedies
We were hosting a small barbeque with neighbors. I was grilling a beef brisket. I got to drinking, the brisket caught on fire, I mean totally engulfed!! The husbands saved the day by running to the local rib shack. 50 more dollars later a good time was had by all!!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
My family LOVES this chicken!! I do not stuff the onion in the cavity and do not imagine it alters the flavor much. I will be making this chicken for years to come. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Barbeque Sauce
I was so leary of this recipe at first, after making a vinegar pork roast recipe last year which was horrific!! Thank goodness I overcame my fear and gave this a try, it was divine!! I followed the recipe exactly (unusual for me) and it was perfect. I halved whole chickens and marinaded overnight. Can't wait to entertain with this one over the summer!! Thanks for the recipe!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
