About this Cook
I work at a hospital full time, and I am a full-time mom to a wonderful toddler. I love finding recipes I can freeze, or throw in the slow cooker, or just something I can prep in advance for my husband to throw in the oven. I love trying new recipes, and I am slowly teaching myself to be a better cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family meal time at the table.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my husband to realize that not all holiday turkeys are disasters. They do not have to be dry, tough, flavorless balls filled with a watery stuffing. They can actually be moist and delicious! He asks for my brined Turkey several times a year.
My cooking tragedies
Anything involving forgetting how long my crock pot has been on - or forgetting to turn it from high to low.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
It was pretty sweet, and somewhat spicy, but not sticky. Essentially the sauce reduces down to the point it makes a thick gloopy glaze that will quickly burn so I guess that is the "stickiness". Knowing some people had issues with the chicken getting dry, after browning, I sauteed the chicken for a few minutes in the sauce so that it got infused with the flavor. I then pulled the chicken out, and then sauteed a mixture of veggies in the sauce afterwards. I ended up adding water between chicken and veggies to make sure the veggies got the flavor, but didn't get a burnt glaze. Both myself, and my two year old son enjoyed the food, and I'll probably make again.

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup
Everything was amazing, and delicious until I added the cumin. It overwhelmed my soup, and I ended up throwing out the whole batch. I will make again sans cumin.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
The spice mix was delicious smelling, and made a flavorful skin. However, there was no "stickiness", the skin was very dry, and tough. I will try this spice mix again in the future with a different cooking time/temp to see if it improves the results.
