Summer Squash Chicken Alfredo
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, pasta
My cooking triumphs
I cook almost everything from my own creations and I've only cooked 2 things in 12 years that my family did not like.
My cooking tragedies
Right out of college in my first apartment, I attempted an eggplant parmesan. I burned the eggplant breading and set off the fire alarm and had to throw out the disgusting mess.

Chef John's Coq Au Vin
Even with the canned mushrooms I had to substitute, it was quite mushrooms. Kids loved it too. So tender.

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa
I'm actually canning this, but I don't know how that will turn out since I have to pressure can this because of the fresh corn and uncooked beans. I didn't do the avocado and oil since I'm canning it. Instead of bell peppers, I used Chilaco's that were charred (they are similar to Anaheims I think). I used canning salt and I added some cumin and fresh tomatoes instead of canned Italian tomatoes. Uncanned it tasted awesome (without tasting the hard beans of course), but I think it will be awesome canned. I'll update later. But, as it stands, it's awesome. I also used fresh corn instead of canned.

Authentic Pad Thai
I had to make a few changes. I didn't have paprika, so I used a few red pepper flakes instead. I did shrimp instead of chicken. I squirted on lime juice at the last minute out of a bottle instead of wedges. I also added the bean sprouts in after the noodles had cooked a little bit instead of as a garnish. It was so delicious. We love Pad Thai at restaurants. My family loved this more than any restaurant we've been to.
