Yes, that's what I did today.  It all started with Witchy Woman's Pork Tenderloin Roast from Spain.  After visiting her Spain blog and seeing the photos I decided that I just had to try that succulent looking porkloin she prepared and photographed.  Of course I never follow a recipe and I… MORE

About this Cook
It seems that I always have an assortment of herbs mixed in my color pots at the front door to my home. I enjoy sharing cooking and gardening tips.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love cooking vegan and surprising people when they find out it's not animal based. I actually just love cooking. It's my outlet for creativity and without a garden, it's the next best thing.
My cooking triumphs
Vegan chocolate pudding pie w/cho. crust.

Homemade Mac and Cheese
This will be the only recipe I ever use for mac and cheese. I used good Irish Cheddar and Parm Reggiano grated myself. Large elbows cooked al dente is the way to go in this dish. I did add chopped jalapenos and bit of shaved or minced onion and a bit of dry mustard as well. The topping browned to perfection and the rich and creamy dish was appreciated by all even after rewarming. It made heavenly leftovers, too.

Grandma's Corn Chowder
This recipe produces a creamy and rich corn chowder. It's great as is or with embellishments. I added 3 ears of fresh corn, chicken broth instead of water and just one cup of half and half. No bacon but did have some organic bacon drippings for sautéing. I used a Cuisinart immersion blender on approx. 1 cup of the soup and added it back in before adding the half and half. This method always produces a creamy soup.

Asian Grilled Chicken
Simple and flavorful! Skin on thighs were juicy and tender after baking at 350 for approx. 50 minutes. Turned and basted till they came out beautiful and brown.
