About this Cook
I love to bake and cook. Allrecipes is the site to find the recipes that allow me to do just that. Being in the kitchen gives me a creative outlet.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Also cooking things that smell scrumptious in the oven all day long.
My cooking triumphs
I believe most of my triumphs in the kitchen are due to this rule.. 1) Never try a recipe for the very first time when you are expecting company.
My cooking tragedies
I suppose my most despised mishap is when I make a mess of the oven.

Basic Chocolate Buttercream Icing
This butter cream icing is great! Used it for in-between the layers of a white cake. I sifted the cocoa and confectioners' sugar and I added a pinch of salt. Mmmmm

Mendi's Favorite Orzo
This side dish was well received in my house. After reading the reviews for more flavor I decided to use fresh onion and garlic instead of powdered and also to cook the orzo in chicken broth. Had one serving leftover which wasn't bad warmed in the microwave. Nice side that went well with AR recipe Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Quick Chicken and Corn Chowder
I loved this easy to make chowder. The cheese is an excellent addition. I seasoned the chicken breast with the olive oil, S&P and garlic powder then baked it in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. I diced it and tossed it with all the other ingredients in the slow cooker on low until the onion and pepper were soft. Only had a yellow pepper which added a nice sweetness. Served with garlic bread this was a nice hearty meal.
