About this Cook
I only have to cook for myself and my boyfriend. He enjoys my cooking; but as I am best at preparing meat-based dishes and most of our friends are vegan, I not sure if anyone else will.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in a crock pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up on a diet of hamburger patties w/o buns, canned veggies, and mashed potatoes. I do not like any of these foods. However, my mom did introduce me to the crock pot...
My cooking triumphs
My chili with beer and lamb is pretty decent.
My cooking tragedies
A tiny kitchen and an uneven electric stovetop.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
I followed the recipe exactly (except that I cut the brussel sprouts in half first) and found these to be surprisingly good. I've made them for several holiday dinners and other reviewers are correct, they actually do tasted better when they turn brown on the edges. I would give this recipe 5 stars, except that some of the tasters found the roasted sprouts a tad dry.

Crustless Spinach Quiche
This is great and so easily to make. As other reviewers have suggested, I only used two cups of reduced fat cheese, and it turned out perfect. Red peppers add some desired color and flavor.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya
This is another one of the those recipes where the quality of the ingredients selected makes a big difference. It is spicy (which is good) and the sauce is very thin (which isn't). I'm not sure if it will help, but I am going to add some tomato paste next time I make this. Also, it the interest of saving money, the shrimp could be left out, they didn't add much.
