About this Cook
Absolutely love to cook. Hardly ever use a recipe - although I do browse them for ideas, but if I try to actually follow one I always end up tweaking it somehow. I've been in the kitchen since junior high, but it wasn't till I was on my own after college that my meals really started impressing people. Now I'm working on improving my baking skills - I'm not a big dessert person, but hubby is...

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese
Just what I needed for supper tonight! We're huge cheese lovers, so I used about 16 oz of shredded cheddar & jack cheeses. Also, for the bread crumbs, I always make my own by lightly toasting a few slices of bread and buttering them on both sides, before crumbling atop the macaroni. Some other users might want to try that, if they don't like the dry bread crumbs. Additionally, this can be made with whole wheat flour, instead of white flour, if desired. We tried it that way and it still tasted great.

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas
Great idea and quite versatile!! I have made these several times now, always with a different list of veggies, depending on what I have in my fridge (carrots or corn make a great addition). I also add seasonings like basil, garlic or ginger, chili powder... and last time I sauteed it with some worcestershire sauce as well as the olive oil. Came out really tasty! Another modification was to add mayo or ranch dressing to the tortilla along with the veggies and cheese. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Corn-Stuffed Tomatoes
Great idea! We got a ton of tomatoes from a relative and I was looking for something creative to do with them... I baked them in ramekins instead of a muffin pan so they could just be left in there; it's a good thing because they ended up with a lot of extra liquid and filling! Overall they were pretty tasty, though next time I may add a few more seasonings or maybe some cheddar cheese after they're done.
