About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook for a crowd. It's hard to cook weeknight dinners after working all day, but I love to cook Thanksgiving dinner for as many people as I can fit! My mom and I have a running deal for holiday dinners - I cook, she cleans up - can't beat that!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving, a friend wanted to help, so he started mashing the potatoes with the mixer in the pan they were boiled in. He didn't realize that the pan had a nonstick coating and bits of it got scraped off into the potatoes! The pan was ruined, but I added some pepper to the potatoes to disguise the black bits. Everyone raved about how good they tasted - I just bit my tongue and said thanks! :-)

Pineapple Pork Chops
Very good! I mixed everything up and baked the whole thing in the oven at 375 for 25-30 minutes. I omitted the oil, added a dash of garlic salt and used an 8 oz can of undrained crushed pineapple instead of just plain juice. Baking them slow in all the liquid made the chops very tender & juicy. Served over sticky white rice. Hubby said add to the rotation!

Best Spanish Rice
Very good! So much better than the boxed stuff, and healthier too, without all the chemicals and preservatives! I didn't use the onion, I don't really like them. I combined 3 different kinds of salsa (finished off the open bottles in my fridge!) to make 1 cup and added a can of diced tomatoes (undrained) as well. It turned out very good, and I will definitely make this again!

E-Z Drop Biscuits
The first time I made it, they spread like crazy - tasted wonderful, but were flat and about 4 inches across. Tonight, I increased the flour to 2 1/2 cups and started with 1/2 cup milk and added a little at a time to get the right consistency. Probably ended up with a total of 3/4 cup milk. They are in the oven now and holding their shape beautifully! Both times I also omitted the cream of tartar per other reviews.
