Closing up on my 69th birthday and still enjoy cooking. Maybe I missed my calling. Now I am really into trying some new recipes and have found many, many new favorites on this website. Thanks AllRecipes!
My favorite things to cook
Garlic spaghetti, garlic chicken fried chicken, roasted brussel sprouts (they are so sweet and delicious when fixed this way), any roasted vegetables (I really give my oven a workout)...
My cooking triumphs
Figuring out how to make Chicken Kiev and NOT have the butter explode into the oil when deep frying them. Also not having to stick them together with toothpicks and determining why my cousin who gave me the recipe had included 1 Tbsp of sugar in with the butter....yep it called for "sweet butter" and she didn't know that meant unsalted.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a very young cook I invited company for dinner and roasted the great 8 pound chicken I had purchased. Unfortunately it was a fowl (who knew?) and we couldn't even cut it. So we took them out for dinner instead! So embarrassing...it looked so pretty but was inedible.
