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.

Grilled Chicken Adobo
Liked it a lot. Served it with brown rice and steamed broccoli. After removing the chicken, I spiced up the sauce with a little chipotle pepper sauce and thickened it with cornstarch and served it in little dipping bowls... we dipped the grilled chicken and broccoli in it.

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.
