My Thanksgiving Cornucopia
About this Cook
I am a single mom. I work full time and don't have the kind of time I use to, to cook. But I spend a lot of the weekend coming up with things to try. My childrens grandparents practically live at my house then. I love nothing more than to cook for a crowd.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything. I really love trying new recipes. Depends on my mood what is my favorite...I guess if its for a group that I am cooking for, I am happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge Thanksgiving blow out meal, and a small intimate Christmas dinner.
My cooking triumphs

Quick and Easy Thai Style Coleslaw
Super easy. I replaced one of the tablespoons of honey with soy sauce. One of the tablespoons of sesame oil I replaced with sesame oil with chili to give it some kick. I added sesame seeds instead of peanuts and grated fresh ginger in it. I know you shouldn't rate unless you stick to the recipe, but it's a great base and is easy to tweak to your tastes. I made it to use on Korean BBQ tacos.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce
This stuff is awesome and made me change my mind about store bought stuff...UGH. I did add a couple chipotle peppers and cooked all of it in the crock pot. I swear I could eat it by the spoon full. I am whipping up a batch for pulled pork for the Super Bowl!

Ramen Coleslaw
I totally love this recipe and could eat it by the bowlfuls. I use a large bag of prepared tricolor slaw mix and two packages of ramen. It doubles the recipe, but I triple the dressing with the exception of only using 2 of the flavor packets. I use half olive oil and half sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. I also add a couple tablespoons of soy sauce and some ground ginger. With the soy sauce and flavor packets, you can omit the salt. This goes great with an Asian meal, or for bbq's and potlucks. I've never had any leftovers. Much lighter than mayo based slaw and has wonderful texture
