About this Cook
Retired Chem. Engineer. Married w/ 2 kids in college. I love summer and vacations.
My favorite things to cook
Fast and easy stuff with common ingredients but great flavor and nutrition. This is changing since I retired, but I didn't have time to be shopping to find ingredients I never heard of, and I often started preparing meals late, when everybody was already hungry and can't wait for a meal that takes too long to prepare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili night at our vacation place (the extended family comes over for chili and corn bread when we're there for vacation) The traditional Thanksgiving dinner at one of our sisters'houses.

Cool Cucumber Salad
Given the rave reviews, we were disappointed with this recipe. It was rather tasteless. Maybe our onions were too mild?

Smothered Chicken Breasts
Made this with leftover rotissary chicken... Just reheated it in the microwave with the lemon pepper, but left out the salt. I wasn't trying to save time, but that saved about 15 minutes. Otherwise i followed the recipe exactly. The carmelized onions were wonderful, maybe the result of cooking in bacon grease. I served it for lunch on toasted hotdog buns.

Fruity Granola Bars
We all liked these and prefer them to purchased granola bars. I started with the brown sugar, honey, water, salt, butter and oats and added craisins, raisins, pecans, almonds, cashews, sesame seeds. When they were done baking and cooling they were still too soft to handle, so I left them in the pan overnight. The next day they were much firmer and easier to handle, though still not at all crispy or crunchy. I wrapped each bar in waxed paper and stored them in a ziploc freezer bag. They're more than a week old now and still just as good as the first day... nice, chewy granola bars.
