My Greatest Cooking TriumphI have a couple but the latest was baked chicken breasts. I pre-heated the oven to 425 degrees. Then I soaked the chicken breasts in 2 egg whites and spicy barbque sauce. After that I crushed about 15 Wetabix (a cereal) in a gallon plastic bag. To the Wetabix I added 2 tbsp. powdered garlic, 2 tbsp. freshly ground black pepper, 2 tbsp Rosemary, 1 tsp of ground red pepper, 1/2 tsp cinammon and shake well. Then you put in each chicken breast separately and shake it in the bag. I baked them on a shallow pan covered with aluminum foil (so I didn't have to scrub the pan LOL). Spray the shallow pan with a light coating of Pam. Bake them for 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven (425 degrees) and then turn the heat down to 375 and baked them until their internal temperature showed 175 degrees fahrenheit.
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterI was 20 and making my first turkey for my boyfriend as neither of our parents were home for Thanksgiving. I was taking the nicely cooked turkey out of the oven to put on a platter so I could use what was in the bottom of the pan to make gravy. I done all this before as we always helped mom with our Thanksgiving turkey. My 16 year old sister was helping me. Suffice it to say the turkey slid off the platter and onto the tile floor of the kitchen. It slid all the way from the stove to the dining room (about 20 feet away). I'd just washed the floor so I said, "Well, looks like we pick it up and put it on the platter and never say a word." I swore my sister to secrecy. The whole dinner tasted fantastic and no one was the wiser
My Food For ThoughtI've been through some awful things in my life time and they were given to me to help someone in a same or similar situation. We can learn and we can teach.
