About this Cook
Stay at home mom in burbs. Found I really enjoy trying new dishes, especially ones that can serve several different functions, meaning good as leftover but can be turned into something else for quick-fix meals too. Love having fresh veggies & herbs to use, especially garlic & onion (my husband's rolling his eyes!) and especially home grown! down with mcdonald's-kids do NOT have to live on mcnuggets & fries alone!!!!!
My favorite things to cook
anything mexican, especially enchiladas(make double & freeze)with lots of veggies & beans. i love chilis or soups, year round (you're inside in the AC in the summer anyway, why not?) i really love gumbos or red beans & rice, recipes that need lots of mirepoix to heighten flavor naturally. and yummy salads with homemade dressings. and recently i just can't get enough sausage with saurkrut & potatoes. oh, and christmas cookies(otherwise i can take or leave desserts!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family has lots. the ones i continue are homemade knaeflies (knopflis)served with stewed tomatoes & piping hot great northern beans. liver dumplings, my mom's meatloaf meal( my favorite of all times) and several great cookie recipes that have been around forever in our family.
My cooking triumphs
having my dad ask me to fix something for him that he can't make since my mother & grandmother have passed away. having my husband say that i need to 'add this meal into the rotation' & wants to take it to lunch for leftovers & when my little 4 year old asks for more of anything cuz it's 'YUMMO'!
My cooking tragedies
cooking thanksgiving dinner for my husbands family. i tried to do it all...and do it the way that i always loved it growing up, and realizing that no one really liked much of anything i made cuz it's nothing like what they were always used to. plus, i fell short of several things, like the stuffing & the desserts, because no one liked pumpkin pie but my husband & me!!!!

Addictive Chocolate Truffles
i always wanted to try to make some truffles, now i know they are more trouble then they're worth. very rich & messy to make & a lot of work for not a lot of reward. can't make with kids around, too fast paced trying to get them back in the fridge all the time. i'll stick with cookies...

Quick and Easy Chicken Spaghetti
didn't like it much. we usually don't cook with 'cream of...soup', so i think it just tasted fake. also a little too spicy for my 2 year old with the rotel tomotoes. if i was making it again, i'd use regular diced. oh well, i like trying something new, now we know this wasn't a home run for our family.

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels
yum! these were pretty easy & fast for doing them the first time. there's a certain confidence you get once you make certain recipes several times, so i think they will get even better when we make them again, and again, etc. i was amazed how good they looked, i got my hands slapped cuz i kept trying to sneak one before we had our dinner. my hubby made a couple into hoagie rolls & we split them afterwards & stuffed em with sausage, mustard & saurkraut! delish! and he's taking a turkey samich on one today for lunch! will definitely make again! good little weekend recipe-something everyone in the family can help with too!
