About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially cookies and cakes. I've been doing so since my Home Ec class in junior high. As for other foods, I started cooking once I got married. As my name states, I love it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma's mashed potatoes during the holidays and Mom's lasagne. No one can beat my mom's recipe, and I've tried a lot of other versions.
My cooking triumphs
Two of my family's favorites are chicken tacos and cheddar-encrusted chicken.
My cooking tragedies
Caramels. They tasted very good, but they turned out to have the consistency of maple syrup! I have yet to try that one again...

Baked Split Chicken Breast
I make split chicken breasts all the time in the slow cooker, but I've wanted an oven recipe. Chicken was extremely moist, and I baked it for 45 minutes and broiled it for the last 10 minutes. I used fresh rosemary and added more minced garlic. Good base recipe for me, but I think it lacks depth of flavor. Thanks for the start, Prospective PhD!

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef
Mongolian beef is meant to be sweet. If the brown sugar were decreased or omitted from this dish, then it becomes a plain brown sauce. As written, the recipe tastes like PF Chang's Mongolian Beef. Thanks for sharing, Leith123!
