About this Cook
Married with a baby on the way! I like cooking anything and everything. I do a lot of "freezer cooking", cooking a lot of dishes over the weekend that go in the freezer that can quickly be cooked on busy/lazy nights.

Chiles Rellenos Pie
this was great! my husband doesnt eat rellenos at restaurants but i do, and it tasted darn similar. The texture of course was a little different. I was skeptical about the egg/milk/cream topping..but when it was cooked it looked great! we halved recipe and baked in a 9x9 square pan. i added salsa at the table. i accidentally put chicken on before the cheese...which led to the cheese melding with the topping...which made it look like cheese....which we thought was great :) i also eyeballed the cheese, i just did enough to cover the chiles, it def wasn't 2 cups worth. it was plenty. will make this again :)

Bean Soup With Kale
I halved the recipe...I only had 1/2 an onion + 1 bunch kale which came to just over 2 cups worth... but used a whole ctn of stock and 2 regular tomatoes. shouldve added another can of beans because nobody would've known they were in there! i pureed 3/4 the kale because my hubs is leery of anything leafy & green lol but he'd eat it if it was pureed in soup so thats what I did. Didnt have fresh parsley but did have parm so a little sprinkle went on each bowl. will make this alot and play with ingredients a little bit...maybe some shell pasta a la minestrone?
