Old World Escarole and Beans
Me and My fiance Mike
About this Cook
I just got married April 2006. I have only been cooking for a couple years but I enjoy it very much and find it very relaxing after a stressful day at the office. Nothing is better than opening up a bottle of wine and cooking dinner for my husband as I wait for him to come home from work. Since I work 12 hours a day, I am always looking for easy recipes with few ingredients so my trips to the supermarket are short and inexpensive.
My favorite things to cook
My husband is picky about the type of foods I cook. He likes less carby things and his favorite meal is Feta Stuffed Chicken so I try to accommodate him by making chicken at least 3 times a week. I personally love making low carb pasta with lowfat clam sauce, seared sesame tuna and variations of couscous with different ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am raised with Italian and Polish heritage. My favorite Polish recipe is spinach Pie - and I submitted "Susan's Spinach Pie" in honor of my Mom. I also love making Linguini with Clam sauce and Chicken Parmigana in honor of my Dad's side.
My cooking triumphs
I have only been cooking for a couple years but I have pulled of a few nice cocktail parties and dinners with over 6 people. I am also very proud of my ability to make a nice dinner with limited items of food in the house.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at decorating cookies and at making chicken in a frying pan for some reason! Also fish - I can do Tuna- thats about it!

Escarole and Beans
the taste was great- hubby loved it- but i found it to be "mushy"- the beans were cooked much longer than necessary. i also would have preferred a chicken stock base instead of only the juice from the beans. i think the escarole, garlic, oil and salt and peppers should cook first for 10 minutes, then the beans and some chicken stock added second and cooked for another 3 minutes max. good taste but cooking directions need to be tweaked.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
awesome, awesome, awesome!!!!! my husband LOVED This!!!!! i let the sauce reduce by more than half....I also added diet butter. I cooked this recipe with boneless lamb steaks- and it was ridiculously good...you dont need to bpay for lamb chops to experience the great flavor of this dish. WELL DONE!

Jalapeno Chicken II
the concept is good but I need to make adjustments for next time. -1- i will skip the bacon- i dont think it added any flavor or value to the recipe. -2- i will use low fat cream cheese -3- i will dip the rolled chicken in egg and breadcrumbs then bake in the oven (and skip the bbq) -4- i will grill the jalapenos themselves first before stuffing in the chicken ---the italian dressing marinade part left the chicken tasteless it needed more marinating..and the jalapeno was too spicy- needed to be cooked before putting inside the chicken. with some tweaking this could be fantastic- the chicken, jalapeno and cream cheese could be a great combination.
