About this Cook
I love to cook for and with my family. I am lucky to have a family that loves to try new things and comes up with great ideas to keep things interesting.
My favorite things to cook
Spicy Food, comfort food, salads and CAKES!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids come filtering back home from College on Fridays and we always cook great stuff for the weekend and for them to return to school with.
My cooking tragedies
I had cooking thanksgiving dinner a number of times but one year it was for a particularly large group. I was so completely frustrated because my turkey was an hour and a half behind my estimated time thus resulting in overcooked side dishes and slightly ornery guests. I later heard my kids chatting about how they had seen my brother in law open the roaster to look at the turkey "about a hundred times". Since then, I buckle a long belt around the entire roaster and no one has dared to mess with it.

Honey Mustard Chicken with Pretzel Crust
This was okay....I just wasn't so crazy about the pretzel crust. If you do use regular pretzels the salt is absolutely crazy high. I did like the mustard flavors however so may try it again with panko crumbs.
