About this Cook
I like to eat and I tend to be a picky eater, therefor, I like to cook so I can be in control of what I eat. Thankfully, Mr. LTH eats everything and anything (except sweet potatoes and vinegar).
My favorite things to cook
I'm a very mood dependent cook: what I'm in the mood for dictates what I like to cook. I've found I really enjoy making new "faceless" recipes and adding a face to them.
My cooking triumphs
I consider everything that comes out of our kitchen and people enjoy/eat to be a triumph...
My cooking tragedies
Underbaked cakes + wire racks + oven to "finish cooking" = a very messy oven

Simply Good Eggs
I really liked these! Now, deviled eggs aren't my thing, so I don't have much to compare them to, but I really enjoyed these. I made them using pickled eggs and 1/2ed the recipe for 5 eggs. I chose to decrease the sugar and I'm glad I did because I think the full amount would have been a tad much for my tastes. I love the dill relish and yellow mustard. THANKS for the recipe! (And, if you haven't tried PICKLED deviled eggs yet, DO IT!)

Potato Cheese Calico Soup
This soup was so good Mr. LTH said he liked it, without being asked! I chose to add 4 cloves of garlic (because garlic makes everything better and just seemed a happy threesome with potatoes and cheese) to the onions/potatoes/broth. I had to eyeball/guesstimate the pound of potatoes, but I did my best (peeling the white potatoes, first). I'm way too lazy to do the whole blender thing, so I used my immersion blender instead and it worked like a charm. While the potatoes et al were boiling (the 10 minutes was spot on for me), I sautéed the chopped baby bells and diced red bell in a pat of butter to soften them up. I used white pepper, dried parsley, and season salt to season (as well as salting the broth/potatoes as they boiled). The texture/appearance wasn't quite company worthy, but it tasted good and I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow. THANKS for the recipe!

Cheese Tortellini Soup and Sausage
Mr. LTH, unsolicited, said, "Tell them Mr. LTH loves this." There you go... I used ground beef in place of sausage because I just don't care for sausage. To make up for some of the lost seasoning, I used Italian diced tomatoes. To add nutrients, I added shredded carrots with the browning beef/onions/garlic and chopped fresh spinach when I added the tortellini. It was a tad on the bland side for ME, so I added some seasoned salt to my bowl and that nailed it, for me. THANKS for the recipe!
