About this Cook
I actually have a culinary degree but I feel I lack the creativity to come up with my own exciting menus and recipes. Due to learning to cook at a school, I can and am confident in following any recipe I find. I wish I could find great dishes my children would love.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, Pasta Dishes, Roasts, Desserts.

The World's Greatest Crab Recipe
Just made this recipe on snow crab and king crab and it was the best crab I've ever had!! As a Northwest resident I would have loved to have tried it on fresh Dungeness but alas we were unable to go crabbing this season. I cooked it about four minutes on each side and it was flavorful, tender and perfectly cooked! I loved it. Next time, I'm going to try in in the oven as the BBQ does tend to flame up a lot and the pieces I loved best were the ones that didn't get "flame" broiled. Regardless, I will definitely cook my crab this way most every time (still will enjoy fresh steamed crab as frequently as possible)!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
I found it to be just OK at best. It was way too salty and way too thick. I only used two large chicken breasts but left sauce amounts the same. I also only put in half the italian dressing packet. In the end I had to add 1/2 a can of chicken stock to thin it out and then it was still too thick. Likely if I make this again I will use a whole can of stock, a whole can of cream of mushroom soup rather than cream of chicken (both will be low sodium)and only 4 oz of cream cheese and only use one tablespoon of the seasoning packet. Plus I will add some mushrooms and diced onions to give it a little better flavor. It was just average to less then average as it was. I'm sure the leftovers will end up in the trash.

I think the amounts are a little off. Needs a little less sugar. Also it needs to cook longer. I kept having to add more water to get the right consistence without burning it.. I think it's a fine base recipe but it really depends on what type of apples you use and their size etc. personally I like to do applesauce in the crockpot ... It ends out coming out so much smoother. When I cook it in the crockpot I use 5-6 lbs apples (or about 12 cups chopped), 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 cup water, 1 tbsp lemon juice. I cook it on high for three hours then I mash it with a potato masher. It comes out yummy and smooth.
