About this Cook
I'm married and stepparent of two boys. I'm thoroughly convinced that my cooking played a big part in my husband falling in love with me. Once I started cooking him dinner things got serious very quickly!
My favorite things to cook
I love using my cast iron reversible grill/skillet! It was also the first wedding gift we received, from my favorite people in the whole world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom didn't really teach me how to cook, but she did give me jobs in the kitchen, some I still hold to this day. For example, I've stirred the gravy for Thanksgiving turkey every year except the one we had it at my inlaws.
My cooking triumphs
I do pretty well, if I do say so myself. I experiment a lot, and I can honestly say that most of what I prepare gets rave reviews all the time.
My cooking tragedies
In Home Ec class when I was in 7th grade we had a free day to make whatever recipe from the semester we wanted. My group of 3 or 4 classmates decided we'd make corn muffins. Sadly, we accidentally substituted salt for sugar. Ugh!

Simple Broiled Haddock
Great basic recipe. I made just as written and would make it again. My very picky husband thought it was just okay, but the rest of the family loved it. Can't be beat for ease of preparation and cooking time.

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers
I love this recipe. My husband wants me to make this every week. I leave out the egg (did it by accident one time and didn't notice a difference, so I don't bother now) and use ~6 oz of tomato and basil feta. I saute the minced garlic (upped to 4 cloves) and spinach a few minutes on the stove before adding to the rest of the mixture. Per other reviewer suggestions, I add worcestershire (few tablespoons maybe) and some basil and paprika (~1 tbsp each). Plus some salt and pepper. I form the patties then stick in the freezer for at least an hour. The batch makes enough for two meals for my family, and when I cook up the second half, I just cook them on the stove straight from the freezer.

Barbeque Chicken
For me and my husband this was just okay. The kids went crazy for it, though. I probably won't make again.
