For me, the best gifts are homemade gifts.  It's not that I'm so rich I can go out an buy myself anything I want, but a homemade gift has no price, it's priceless.  So when put together a list of the top 20 gifts to give for a #HomemadeHoliday, I jumped onboard.I absolutely… MORE

About this Cook
About the ONLY thing I don't like about cooking is the HEAT!! I'm not sure why, but I get very easily overheated. I usually sit while cooking, and have a fan blowing directly on me if available. I've been thinking about renaming myself - thehotchef - lol. It's a little better in winter, but I live in Albuquerque, NM - it never gets REALLY cold here, and my body just seems to want to overheat when I get busy in the kitchen! That's one of the reasons I like to divide my kitchen work into 2 or 3 parts at a time. One day I chop the veggies, the next day I roast the veggies, and the 3rd day I put together the lasagna and bake, for example.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, black bottom banana cream pie, fruit salad, beef stroganoff. I like to try something new for Thanksgiving every year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's tea ring, macoroni/potato salad, bread, BRINING the Thanksgiving turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Best pies ever!
My cooking tragedies
My husband likes his own cooking better than mine! So much so that he is willing to make dinner for our family everyday - that's just fine with me!

Grilled Salmon Greek Pitas
I'm not a big fish fan, and I don't like salmon, so we used cod for this recipe. This recipe wasn't my favorite. The fish was too bland. I guess I was hoping for something with a Gyro flavor and that was totally lacking. I think it would have been better if the red onion had been left un-grilled, like an Gyro is, but maybe that would have overpowered the fish too much. I do LOVE the Reynolds Foil method of grilling the fish and use it ALL the time for my pescetarian daughter. When the rest of us are having meat on the grill, she gets fish cooked in non-stick Reynolds Foil. Thank you Reynolds for introducing us to this quick easy method for grilling fish!

Grilled Masala Chicken with Vegetables
I had never tried garam masala before, but had been wanting to try it for a long time, so I was happy to give this recipe a try. It was good, but I don't think the garam masala flavor is for me. I did LOVE the Reynolds foil method of preparing it, though. One change I made was to add sliced red bell pepper to the mix for both flavor and color. I would have used less garam masala and more salt uin the seasoning, but that's just my personal taste. The other thing I changed was to add a couple of thing to the yogurt - a little garlic powder, some dill, some salt and some lemon juice. Basically making it a yogurt sauce instead of just plain yogurt. I used parsley instead of cilantro because I dislike cilantro. I recommend this recipe for anyone who wants to try garam masala, or who likes the flavor. I especially recommend the Reynolds Foil method of grilling for this recipe or any other you may be thinking of making.

Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Bread
YUMMY! I used instant pudding instead of cook and serve (because that's what I had on hand) and Pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon (becaue I like the flavor better) and it was AWEOME! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
