When I was younger it seemed such a chore to figure out what I was going to be for Halloween. Most of the time I didn't figure that out until Halloween day, just hours before heading out the door with our pillow cases in hand to gather all our treats. Halloween is much more fun now than it… MORE

About this Cook
I live in a cozy ranch home in the country with my husband of 14 years and my two dogs, Smoky and Molly. I have one son who is 24 years old. I have lived Michigan my whole life. I love to cook and bake but I am limited on what I can make at home for the two of us because my husband doesn't like alot of vegies. I would love to try new things, but I can't eat it all by myself:) I work full time outside of the home. I am addicted to allrecipes.com and cookbooks and cooking magazines. You can usually find me reading my recipe books and if I am online, my husband knows I am drooling over recipes and nothing else!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking dinners and desserts. I would have to say my favorites to cook are lasagna and chicken dishes (like Chicken Marsala and Chicken Picatta). I also enjoy making cookies. I love trying new recipes and adding my own personality to them. I am addicted to putting my own spin on recipes I find here.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have always gone to our family's homes on the holidays, but I always cook a Thanksgiving dinner at home on one of the weekends surrounding Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
I made the best fudge of my life. So creamy and not one bit of graininess. Watch out Mackinaw Island!
My cooking tragedies
I would have to say just recently. I had gotten a new stove with a broiler on the top portion of the oven. I had never used one of these before and I decided to broil steaks in December (2008). I pulled them out to check them and they were not quite done so my husband and I decided to put them back in for a few minutes. I was watching in amazement how the grease was popping up and fireballs were coming down. How dumb was I? Needless to say, right in front of my eyes, the grease on the broiler pan caught fire and it was quite a hectic couple moments in my kitchen that night. I can laugh now, but what was I thinking? Watching fireballs??!! Geez. Tough lessons learned.

Lemon Garlic Chicken
This was tasty and I liked that it was ready to eat in under 30 minutes. Quick dinners are a plus in this household. I cut my thick chicken breasts in half horizontally and then in thirds because they were VERY large breasts. I also only used enough garlic powder to give them a good coating, not the full amount called for. Served with a nice garden salad and dinner was done in a flash.

Creamy Parmesan Sauce for Fish
I loved this! This is now my favorite way to eat cod. I scaled the recipe to 2 servings for hubs and I, skipped the hot sauce, added about 1/2 tsp garlic powder and used the thicker cut loins. My fish was broiled on high about 8" from the broiler since it was thick and I knew it would take longer. I broiled about 10 minutes before adding the sauce and broiled for another 2 minutes as stated. I would consider a light oil coating before the first broil next time on the loins to ensure the outer doesn't dry out. This probably wouldn't be needed on fillets since they cook faster. The butter allowed some of the topping to melt off and into the pan. Save that yummy goodness and spread over the fish when done. Or just eat it with a spoon, which ever you prefer. This recipe is a keeper. Yum!

Hard-Steamed Eggs
If you've ever gotten so mad while peeling your boiled eggs that you feel like cussing and throwing them all away because once you turn them into deviled eggs everyone will think a critter had already started chewing on them before they make it to the table then look no further than this method! And I know you've been there. I'm hooked. Once I started making my eggs this way I've yet to say one bad word. Brian deserves a great big kiss for sharing this secret. Shhh...don't tell my husband I said that!
