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! :-)

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.

Luau Chicken
Excellent! I didn't use the peppers or onions - my family doesn't like them. I browned chicken breasts that were pounded thin in a little olive oil in an oven proof skillet, then whisked in all the sauce ingredients in the pan and simmered for a few minutes. I then added water chestnuts & crushed pineapple, and put the uncovered skillet in the oven to finish cooking the chicken - 375 for about 10 minutes. Served over white rice. Hubby asked me to add to the rotation!
