Lemon Ice-Box Cake II
Meredith, Nick, and Brandy
Indian Chicken Curry I
About this Cook
I am 28 and female, current college student, married for 4 years. We have one dog and five cats!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes and cookies and try out new potluck dishes. My husband always requests lasagna and crock-pot roast - both of which are fun to play with and add new things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother likes to try new recipes and I can remember her using [as she still does!] the Betty Crocker cookbook she got as a wedding present in 1964! I grew up with a VERY recipe-oriented approach and now I like to go against the recipe and add new things :)
My cooking tragedies
Not letting a cake cool enough and all the icing on the 3 layers slid off when I unveiled it!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
This is absolutely fantastic! I had a bone-in breast that I had no idea what to do with, and all my whole-bird recipes in the oven were awful. I used a lot of butter under the skin, stuffed the cavity with quartered onions, a tablespoon or so of minced garlic, lemon juice, and more butter. Then we rubbed the whole thing with Poultry Seasoning, left it breast-down on High for about 3 hours (actually, we forgot to turn it down!) and then for about 2 hours on Low. This is so easy and incredibly delicious. Every time a turkey or even a whole chicken is on sale, I'm going to fix it this way and use the meat, not wasting it on full-price chicken breasts!

Blueberry Crisp I
This wasn't a crisp in the least. It was a rubbery, bland cake with blueberries on the bottom! Definitely won't use this again.

Pumpkin Cheese Bread II
This was quite easy and very good for our Christmas dinner. I used lemon oil for the cream cheese filling and used a Bundt pan. I happened to use a whole can of pumpkin and it turned out fine - very moist and dense, more cakelike than breadlike. The filling looked like it would completely overwhelm the cake, but it turned out to be too little! Next time, I will use one and one-half of the filling. Thank you for this recipe!
