About this Cook
I love to cook and bake and learn new cooking techniques. Check out my recipe blog at www.ourlifetastesgood.blogspot.com and my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/LifeTastesGoodBlog?ref=hl
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy using fresh and flavorful ingredients to prepare meals for and with my family. Many times I will tweak a recipe to our liking, but I have just recently started experimenting with flavors to make signature recipes, however this is something very new to me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter loves to bake and we enjoy creating new things together in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
It is a running joke in my household to expect burned rolls on a holiday haha

Slow Cooker Chicken and Butternut Squash Stew
I made this recipe exactly as stated without the peppers. I subbed in some a teaspoon of chili beak chili oil and the heat was perfect. My problem with the recipe is the cook time. It is way too long. This was perfect after just 3 hours. With such small pieces of chicken and squash you should not have to cook it for 7+ hours! It ruins the texture of the meat and the squash and turns them into mush. After just 3 hours they were perfect and the flavors were distinctive and delicious. I wish I had gone with my gut and took it off the heat at that time. I rated the recipe as it is written. We did not like it overcooked and mushy. I recommend cooking this for no longer than 3 hours and then it's almost 4 stars for me. It smells great the first few hours of cooking too. I might try it again with the lower cooking time.

Spicy Chinese Barbeque Riblets
This was okay as written, but the sauce was missing something for us. I added cilantro and that helped a great deal and then grated some fresh ginger into the sauce and that gave it the depth I craved! Great base sauce. I love how thick and sticky it is!
