About this Cook
Marketing background, SAHM now although I freelance occasionally. When I do work, it makes me appreciate the days I'm home to make a nice meal for my family!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken soup, zucchini and banana breads, american chop suey (a family recipe), marinara sauce (the smell is amazing!) goulash and chicken paprikash.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hungarian! My Mom's family is Hungarian so some of our favorites wouldn't exactly make it on the healthiest food lists but we still love them. Chicken paprikash, goulash, cabbage noodles, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, shutney sologna. Yum.
My cooking triumphs
Anything my kids love to eat makes me feel triumphant. So, this happens about once a year!! LOL.

Portuguese Chicken I
This was really good -- and I didn't even have cream, which would really have made it outstanding. Just the right amount of chicken, wine, garlic and cream flavors. Terrific over rice. A few notes: I don't think this really takes 45 minutes to simmer, especially if you add warm broth. Also, if you too don't have cream, I used 2% milk with corn starch and it worked fine. My kids both liked this.
