Chicken Enchiladas I
About this Cook
I am 30 years old and have 2 "children"--the 4 legged fuzzy kind! My dogs are Jack Russells--Juliet and Lily. I love ot cook band my mom hates to cook, I live a few minutes away so I often go to her house during the week to cook dinner for her. I get to experiment a lot since she has some odd allergies (no garlic, ginger, anything spicy and no tomato based sauces)...not easy but I'm finding things that are easy that she likes!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything. I don't eat pork or red meat and rarely eat any meat. Lately I've been in an asian and Thai phase so lots of homemade curries and peanut sauces!
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Thanksgiving I always went to my grandmother's (Jackie) house either the night before or early the morning of to help prepare the meal. One year when she broke her arm I was placed in charge of her squash casserole recipe and since she passed away in September '04 and making this recipe reminds me of her. My aunt is also teaching me how to make Jackie's creamed corn and gravy (not together)--those were always my favorites!
My cooking triumphs
Lots of things--I love making a dish that looks as if it came from a 4 or 5 star restaurant! I created an orange-basil rub that I use to roast chicken or turkey, it's a HUGE hit everytime I make it.
My cooking tragedies
Almost any peanut butter cookie!!!

Easy Cake Batter Fudge
Very easy recipe and tastes just like cake batter! I used yellow cake mix and can't wait to try it with chocolate!

Party Lemonade
Made this for a cookout and received rave reviews from everyone! Not a lemon fan myself but I did taste it, even I liked it! I did use a potato ricer to squeeze the lemons and increased the recipe to 20 lemons and 5 cups sugar. Used a 2 quart pitcher full of ice and it got better as the evening went on! Strained the lemons out of the remaining liquid (they can turn rancid overnight)!

Skillet Herbed Chicken with Mustard
As written it's a 4, with my changes it became a 5! I love the sauce on this chicken, it's incredible. Ok, my changes: Combine herbs with salt and rub into chicken breasts. Heat large saute pan on medium-high, sear chicken breasts 1 minute on both sides and reduce heat to medium. Coat chicken with dijon mustard-honey sauce and add 1/4 cup white wine to pan. Cover and follow cooking instructions from here. Works with any variety of herbs, I omit tarragon as we don't care for the flavor. Leftovers are great when chopped and served over a salad. Part of my regular rotation now!
