About this Cook
I love to cook, as it is relaxing for me to make a lot of things for my family. I have been baking longer, but I like to try new things, and I love to learn how to adjust recipes to suit my family's tastes and health needs.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook would be homemade chicken noodle soup in my crock pot. It's my favorite soup and reminds me of growing up on my grandfather's farm.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Watching everyone scramble to get holiday dinners on the table. (It was fun to watch all sorts of stuff come in my grandmother's house, as everyone, and I mean everyone had their assigned dishes to make since we had such a large gathering.)
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to adjust recipes for salt content. Still learning this, but I have had some successes with this.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention!! :)

Campbell's(R) Tuna Noodle Casserole
While I love this, I cannot have mushrooms of any type. I use cream of celery, as my family likes celery in this dish. I wish more companies could give alternatives for those of us with food allergies, sometimes, I have to guess what would work in a dish if it has an ingredient such as the mushroom soup.

Campbell's(R) Swiss Vegetable Casserole
I make this all the time, but I cannot have anything with mushrooms, so I use either cream of celery or chicken in place of that. I also, in the summer, add one other vegetable than called for, such as zucchini since I have a ton. Everyone that has this at my house wants me to make extra! I also vary the cheeses, sometimes mixing whatever shredded cheeses I have and it always works out well. No one in my family likes the green bean casserole, so this is a great alternative to that. For the ones who feel this is bland, play with spices to see what you like with this...a recipe is only a guide.
