About this Cook
I absolutely love to cook! I just wish I had more time to do it, especially with a new baby! I love relatively easy recipes with 10 ingredients or less. I mostly use this website for recipes for family gatherings, or potlock meals, but I also love to cook for just my husband and I, and soon my son!
My favorite things to cook
Quick and easy recipes, Anything with goat cheese, eggplant, chicken, seafood, casseroles, and desserts! I pretty much love all ingredients and am a NON-picky eater, but the only thing I HATE is peppers. Green, yellow, and red peppers totally ruin a dish for me.
My cooking tragedies
I always find a way to burn cheese. The kitchen is also a totaly disaster after i'm finished with it!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars II
AMAZING. Tastes just like a peanut butter cup. Closest thing to a cafeteria "hollywood square" that I have come accross. The only downside was how difficult they were to cut. It ended up being in sort of jagged pieces that I put into cupcake cups, the chocolate wanted to just split apart (I scored it like other reviewers said, and that didn't help)and it had a mind of it's own with the shape of the pieces. Didn't hurt the flavor though!!! This also has thicker chocolate I thought than your traditional hollywood square. I did also use the parchment paper to line the pan and that worked well.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad
I thought this was pretty good, worthy of 4 stars, but definitely not 5. There is just so much overpowering flavor from the dressing, onions, sharp cheese, bacon etc. that it's hard to taste the broccoli. The dressing overall just tastes like your standard strong creamy italian, I kind of thought, might as well just buy a bottle and dump it on. I think the champagne vinegar is a must to make it a little different. There is also too much cheese in this recipe (I'm NEVER one to usually say too much cheese), but I'd reduce it by half and add raisins and sunflower seeds. The raisins added a bit of sweetness that's necessary. I will make this again but do half the cheese with raisins and sunflower seeds. I also may try this with sweet and sour dressing. REAL bacon is absolutely necessary as well, but I think bacon bits are nasty.

Barbeque Beef Casserole
My husband and I liked this dish. I cut the recipe in half and used only 1 box of cornbread mix and it still made a lot. 4-5 large servings. This recipe is also very good with Manwich sloppy joe sauce nstead of barbecue sauce, and the Manwich sauce makes the recipe less dry. I used about 2/3 can of Manwich for half of the listed recipe. I will continue to make this dish, it's pretty easy and doesn't take long to bake either. It's also cheap.
