About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I am best at cooking chicken and potatoes. I am always enjoying my desserts too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner is by far my favorite family tradition to continue on for years to come.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a Christmas dinner 2004 for 9 people..crammed into a tiny 1 brm appartment. The food was PERFECT! I impressed myself.
My cooking tragedies
During that same Christmas dinner..I punctured the roasting pan, a cheap foil pan, and spilled turkey drippings in my oven..luckily a friend lived next door and loaned me his pan. The turkey was saved.

Shepherd's Pie VI
Fantastic recipe. Who cares that it's not traditional Shepherds pie. I like it. I did however make a few changes and additions. I followed the recipe but added two large cloves of garlic when I sauteed the onions. I used vegetable stock instead of beef. I added an extra 1/4 cup of water and sprinkled extra flour to thicken the gravy. a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce is a must. I did mash the carrots but they ended up being chunky ( tasted great ) and added some frozen peas to the veg layer. It was a family hit. I saved it

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I dont know what I did wrong.. probably added too much flour as another reviewer has mentioned. BUT.. I LOVE THEM. I just made these cookies today and only used half the recipe. I followed it exactly as it states to and they turned out like the most deliciously buttery shortbread chocolate chip cookies. the second batch I flattened them out since they didnt change form once on the pan..and they still taste delicious. I'm positive that's not the way they are supposed to turn out but I cant wait for my husband to try them.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf
Delicious!! I made it exactly the way the recipe called for the first time and it turned out great. Tonight I made it with ground chicken instead. I also used two tablespoons of spaghetti sauce instead of tomato paste and a healthy dollop of franks red hot instead of hot pepper sauce. I omitted the worcestershire sauce because I'm not a fan, and didnt put the topping sauce.. and it was SOO fantastic. My picky hubby ate it (with a little ketchup) and even my 2 year old daughter gobbled it up. I recommend this for everyone! And to Drew.. Love it. I did make this in a loaf dish and cooked it at 375 for 40 minutes.. it cut beautifully
