Me and My Hubby
About this Cook
Although I really love to cook, being a new wife, I could use a little help. I have been utilizing All Recipes for a few years now, however finally decided to become a member. I've had some great success using the recipes from this site, however have had a few flops too - but all in all, it's a great website!
My favorite things to cook
Since I work full time, I love to cook things in the slow cooker. I am always looking for great recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My heritage is Finnish, there are some traditions that my family carries on. One is a breakfast dish called 'Pannukakku' which my family makes every Christmas season. However, since I married a Peruvian man, I am also learning how to make some of the traditional foods from his country.
My cooking triumphs
Lobster Bisque. My husband could not stop raving about it! It was pretty amazing.
My cooking tragedies
Thankfully I haven't had too many... but one I think I will never live down is my Turkey/Spinach Quiche. I think that one almost made my husband sick!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
This was a great recipe! Grilled on the bbq and used non-stick spray. To make it truly vegan I used veggie stock instead of egg and they turned out great. I also made some guacamole to top it off. Yum!

Caper Baked Chicken
For those of us who love capers and lemon... this is a great recipe! I've made it for several guests and all rave about it.

Greek Penne and Chicken
This recipe was a great base for what I was looking for. I took the advice of other reviewers and used only half a package of penne, used canned tomato instead of fresh, which made it very juicy. I ommitted the onions since my hubby doesn't like them, used marinated artichokes, and added calamate olives. With these alterations, this recipe was perfection! My husband would not stop raving about it as we ate... even the next day he told me he wants it again very soon! Thanks for the recipe!
