About this Cook
I am a recent graduate of an M.A. and a newly wed! I enjoy finding new recipes that are cheap, quick, easy, but are still different and delicious! My hubby and I love to cook and are more and more willing to try new and adventurous recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook using my crockpot! It is the greatest way to prep a delicious meal and come home to a 'ready' dinner after work.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Perogies! I loved helping my dad handmake our perogies from scratch growing up, and now I've taken to teaching my husband to do the same.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph would have to be my chilli! It uses lots of different spices and corn to create a new look to a bland dish. Cooking a full Greek evening would have to be the most successful. It was for my moms birthday and it was memorable. I have an oil scar from the Saganaki to prove it!
My cooking tragedies
I would have to say the time that my roommate replaced the sugar with salt in the canister and didn't bother to tell me! Oh dear!

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup
Just lovely! I served this with my first ever Thanksgiving meal cooked by myself. It was the perfect appetizer and the flavors were awesome. I think I used a little extra cheese on each, but really, who wouldn't?!!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos
This recipe is a new favorite in our house. One change we did make to make things easier was to 'chop' the beans up in a food processor. Comments to use a fork, potato mashers, etc, were unsuccessful. But the food processor makes them more like refried beans and easier to work with. However, the full recipe makes A LOT of food! I can't stress that enough! One burrito itself is so filling, and 12 is too much to bake at one time. We baked 6 and froze the other 6 in a casserole dish. Following KEANSOR's comment to heat from frozen for 30 in 350 then 15 without foil...ours were frozen solid after half an hour. We kept them for about 50 minutes under foil in the casserole dish, then with no foil for about another 25-30 minutes. Perhaps it just depends on the oven, but ours definitely needed more time.
