About this Cook
I love to cook! The best part is when folks ask for seconds. Then I know it's a success!
My favorite things to cook
Traditional, family foods. Nothing too fancy, but hearty and healthy. I love to experiment and luckily my husband isn't a picky eater.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All day cooking events for big holiday dinners. Ethnic foods from my grandparents were made growing up and are still my favorite comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
Getting confident enough to experiment on my own and not needing measuring cups/spoons. Learning to go off instinct of what tastes good/how long to cook/how much to add, etc.
My cooking tragedies
Not listening to my gut instinct on a recipe and being disappointed in the results.

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken
We added a thinly sliced onion, as well as one yellow and one green pepper, and an extra clove of garlic. Needed to sub in 1t dried ginger and only had about 1/2C soy sauce, so made up the rest with water. One small, fresh pineapple gave us just enough for the meal. Browned the chicken in a dutch overn, then simmered in the sauce on the sovetop for about an hour and ate with rice and carrots. Good flavor.

Mama Corleone's Sausage and Peppers
The only changes we made were to add a thinly sliced onion to the veggies, along with an extra clove of garlic. It was a good dinner.

Pan Fried Fish with Cajun Tartar Sauce
The only change from the recipe we made was to not add water to the egg. The coating for the fish was really good. The tartar sauce was good, but a little watery.
