About this Cook
I work 1-2 days a week at Sur La Table a culinary paridise. This helps support my habit. I love to cook for my family and friends. I enjoy sharing my knowledge about cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Anything but liver! I go with the seasons. I enjoy fresh garden vegetables in the spring and summer. In the Autumn and winter I use my Dutch oven for many things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having my boys and husband help when we make pizza. When I make pasta sauce in the summer with the garden tomatoes. I make about 4 dozen jars to last the year.
My cooking triumphs
Having a recipe printed in a English cookbook sponsored by Princess Diana while I was living in England. Competing in "Master Chef" Challenge with Gordon Ramsey made it to the third audition.
My cooking tragedies
Using Filo dough for the first time 22 years ago, I wrapped the chicken in the outer paper wrapping along with the pastry sheets. My husband got the prize!

Mexican Blackened Corn
YUM! I used smoking cast iron skillet to char corn. Previous review suggested this and I always do when I want to char corn. Thanks for the great recipe.

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken
We really enjoyed with these modifications. Used 1/2 honey (was plenty), would have been to sweet with 3/4 C. Added some Sambal (ground fresh chile paste from the Asian asile section) to give a little heat, also added a can of water chestnuts and 4 green onions about 20 minutes before serving. Used my Dutch Oven which I prefer. We normally don't care for dark meat, however this was a exception very good. I garnished with thinly sliced green onion, fresh pineapple (didn't add any to dish) and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds. Will make again and will cut back a touch more on the honey, might do 1/4 C. honey and 1/4 C. Dark brown sugar for more depth of flavor.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder
Delicious! I used Fat Free 1/2 & 1/2 and was perfect. Added some celery, onion and fresh garlic for more depth of flavor. Used white wine in place of water. Found Knorr Leek soup base at Meijers. Next time I will thicken with a little flour, we tend to like our soups thicker. Used Snow's and Bumble Bee clams. Bumble Bee is much better worth seeking out. Thank you Cindy
