About this Cook
Cooking is like a hobby that I truly enjoy, and is my primary recipe source. I rarely make a recipe exactly as stated, due in part to all of the other members' helpful reviews of the recipe and suggestions of what they did differently.
My favorite things to cook
It's quite obvious (based on my recipe reviews and photo gallery on this site) that I prefer cooking to baking. I guess that's because cooking can be tweaked to personal preferences, baking is more of an exact science.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a triumph when what I cook tastes good and looks good. If family and friends tell me they enjoy what I made, that's a triumph, too.
My cooking tragedies
Of course. Maybe not "tragedies" but plenty of "oops" moments that I try not to repeat!

Zucchini and Eggs
I added sweet Vidalia onion slices to the zucchini saute and seasoned with oregano. Delicious! The ratio I used was one medium zucchini, 1/2 medium onion, and 2 eggs.

Simple Feta Cheese Salad
Couldn't be easier to "throw" this together for a nice quick salad. I read the reviews though and saw that many felt it was bland as written...I used Garlic and Herb feta cheese and that provided enough seasoning for me.

Honeyed Beef Stew
This is in the oven right now; based on the good aroma I'd say that this is going to taste like a "5". I plan to serve it tomorrow over brown rice. Update: I doubled the sauce ingredients and left the stew uncovered for about 20 mins - that was enough to thicken it to a very nice stew-y consistency. Definitely a keeper recipe for stew that's a little different than the usual.
