About this Cook
I like to cook, garden (roses and organic vegetables), read, and play with my pet birds.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make is homemade pizza. I was raised on Chicago style pizza and can't get that out here on the west coast, so I've learned to make my own. I also like to try new gourmet recipes. I'm always trying to expand my culinary horizon.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the art of making cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
The first Thanksgiving turkey that I made I forgot to remove the giblet bag before cooking it. (DOH!)

Horseradish Pork Chops
This is a great, flavorful, quick week night preparation. I've also done this with boneless, skinless chicken breast and it turns out great every time.

I made these for Easter dessert. I made one change, however. Rather than baking them like a cookie, I put the dough into muffin cups. I filled them with lingonberry jam and bake about 5 minutes longer than the given time. The were crunchy, crumbly and delicious! A definate keeper!

Slow Cooker Dump and Go Cheesy Chicken
I've been making this for years and it's always a hit. I do make one small change, however. I substitue white wine for the milk. I think it gives the dish a better flavor. I always serve this over cooked egg noodles.
