Newlywed married on 12/13/14. I love to cook and try at least 1 or 2 new recipes per week.
My favorite things to cook
I'm willing to try almost anything at least once.
My cooking tragedies
Baking. Anything related to baking, especially breads. I am just TERRIBLE. Nothing ever turns out right.

Vegetarian Lime Orzo
Awesome dish! I halved the recipe, as this was for myself to eat throughout the week for lunch. I followed the recipe exactly, except subbing dried parsley for the fresh. As much as I love fresh, the quantity is too much for one person to use up before it goes bad. Also I omitted the Parmesan, as the only kind we had was the Kraft cheese in a can and I prefer the good, fresh stuff. Simple, easy, and tasty. I can't wait to make this one again!

Cucumber Sandwich
I loved this! You definitely need a very thick bread, otherwise the sandwich gets very soggy. I wish it would keep better, as I made a few extra to take to work for lunch, but they were inedible by day two and three. I used a veggie cream cheese and spinach leaves in addition to the romaine lettuce.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
I had high hopes for this recipe, but it just didn't work for me. Everything was fine until it came time to add the biscuits. I decided to cook them a bit longer as others suggested, about 90 minutes. Some cooked thoroughly, others just clumped together into a weird, sticky mess. The end result was extremely thick (but edible). It wasn't as great as I expected. I might try this again, maybe use a different brand of biscuits, and play around with the biscuit cooking time.
