About this Cook
I love throwing dinner parties for a dozen and I love seeing my family around the table every evening.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always looking for kid-friendly recipes that the whole family will love.
My cooking triumphs
Every day, happy faces.
My cooking tragedies
As a novice, I tried making chicken soup and left that stock pot on low for way too long... that effort brought the fire department and I had to have the carpets cleaned to get the smoke smell out. I'm make MUCH better soup now!

Tuna Melts
Mayo commenters, please note that the standard can of tuna is 3 oz and this recipe is calling for a can that is 12 oz. More mayo use... I always scrape a barely-there layer of mayo onto the bread when I grill a melt. It provides a beautifully glazed finish to the sandwich and its arguably better for you than butter -- but once you are grilling a sandwich that just is not an issue! That's why I liked the idea of baking it, no finish. This was pretty good so I did it again with scallions and roasted red peppers (pat them dry). Just plain YUM!

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce
I made this without the shrimp and didn't change another thing. Perfect! I served it with greenbeans alongside Cashew Chicken, EggRolls and FriedaRice. Great Meal, keeper recipe.

Mushroom and Gorgonzola Soup
Loved this and stayed pretty close to the recipe. I increased the sherry to dilute the gorgonzola's strong flavor. It's a good foundation to grow from. Thanks for sharing!
