About this Cook
I feel like I’m 24 yrs old, but I’m not. And at last count I've got 2 kids & a husband. I'm SAHM with most days are filled with cleaning, sweeping, breaking up fights, time outs, cooking, bathing, running errands and of course playing.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a meat and pototoes kinda gal. However, I'm in love w/ Texmex. And being transplanted to Cali I have been trying to get it right. I wish I could afford to fly to Texas whenever I wanted to just to help w/my cravings :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love Love Love the big holiday meals. For years I "helped" my Grandma and Mom, then it was Grandma watching and advising as my older sister & I made the traditional turkey meal. I'm now on my own and w/two little ones I get take out! :0
My cooking triumphs
My husband calls them Jana surprises. Usually a combination of several recipes made into Surprise!! It's what's for dinner.
My cooking tragedies
1. Boiled the chicken in vinegar instead of white cooking wine. I didn't know what I was doing until my sister walked in and announced "It smells like Easter!" 2. I once was responsible for preparing and serving my sister's bday cake at her party. I placed the cake in the oven; went upstairs to gussy up; came back into the kitchen and learned I had broiled her Birthday Cake!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas
My husband said it was delicious and I agree! Made it with light sour cream and reduced the amount to 3/4 C and used low fat, low sodium soup. Added a pinch of cumin. I didn't put cheese inside the enchiladas and only put 1/4 C of grated colby jack cheese on top which melted really well and spread out to cover each enchilada. Also, I shredded 2 leftover grilled chicken breast (which was less than the called for 2 lbs). Used Pam spray in a non-stick pan to sautee white onion with 1/2 of a green & 1/2 of a red bell pepper. I didn't have green onions, black olives or onion powder. Four stars because the tortillas were really soggy. And that is after I toasted them on my gas stove top. Overall.. excellent taste and I will try the crock pot suggestion to save time! Thanks for sharing! I wish I was creative enough to come up with such a delish recipe!

Garlic Seasoned Baked Pork Chops
Yummy!! And all my picky eaters gobbled it up! I did not change the recipe however to avoid another dirty dish I put the 2T of butter in the baking dish and let it melt in the preheating oven while I prepped the egg wash, grabbed the seasonings and opened the pork chops. It was an incredibly easy recipe and easy clean up. I served with scalloped potatoes and green beans. Thank you for sharing!

Baked Split Chicken Breast
My family loved it, including our picky 5 and 7 yr old kids! I followed the recipe omitting the 45 min. in the frig step. I also put some of the seasoning mix under the chicken skin. 3 large split breast (1 was very thick) were cooked w/in 60 minutes. They came out moist and crispy. My husband (also very picky) said it was the best chicken I've ever made. Thanks so much! It's a keeper!!
