Without going into all of the details, let me just say that last week was one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride and a week I hope to never see a repeat of. I’ll skip the first part of the week and fast forward to Thursday. Thursdays have potential to be late nights for me at work and… MORE

About this Cook
Hello, my name is Nicole. I am 41 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 17 years now. I haven't always enjoyed cooking but Allrecipes has changed that for me over the years. I now consider myself a foodie and am always up for a good challenge in the kitchen. There isn't anything I won't try at least once. Summer is my favorite time of the year and when I am not recipe hunting, menu planning, etc. I spend my time fishing gardening, and babysitting my chickens.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Mexican, Italian, Asian, and grilling
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any so I have started my own. Allrecipes has taught me to "think outside the box". I love trying new and unusual things that I would have never dared or even thought of before discovering this place.
My cooking triumphs
When I got married, I honestly had 0% experience in the kitchen. My mom was the kind that wanted the whole kitchen to herself so that nobody was in her way and I was only allowed in there to grab the plates, utensils, etc. to set the table. I really never thought about what I was going to cook until we got back from our honeymoon and then I was like, "uh oh!". Amazingly enough it all came pretty natural and I am happy to say that I have never ruined a meal forcing us to order take-out.
My cooking tragedies
Me and double battering things do not get along!

Stuffed Green Pepper Soup
I made a few changes based off what I had on hand. The biggest one being that I used a box of Uncle Ben's Brown Rice & Quinoa Roasted Red Pepper instead of plain brown rice. I've gotta tell you that this added a ton of flavor and was quite delicious. I left out the brown sugar altogether because I knew it would make it too sweet for my liking. Lastly I added some celery for extra crunch. This is a recipe where you can substitute a little here and there and it is very forgiving. Thanks for sharing!

Texiana Gumbo (For the Masses!)
I had to scale this way down and I used smoked sausage instead of the andouille out of personal preference. I enjoyed the flavor of this very much. I just ate it as a soup and didn't even bother with the rice. Great flavor all across the board. The one thing I would change and recommend is to not add the shrimp so soon. It got overcooked and a little rubbery. The next time I make this I will toss it in the last 10 minutes. Thanks for sharing!

Dill Pickle Salsa
Made as written and wouldn't change a thing. I left my pickles in pretty big cubes because I wanted the more dill flavor. My very first original recipe that I came up with was a cucumber salsa in which I use dill pickle relish so I knew I would love this one too. Thanks for sharing duboo!
