About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I recently learned how to make empenadas (spanish meat pies) from a lady from Nicaragua. There are many variations and I want to learn how to make a variety of them.

Bottom Round Roast with Onion Gravy
So here is my take on the people who get upset because others change a posted recipe...I went looking for a recipe for a bottom round roast that I bought on sale and wasn't sure what to do with. This one caught my eye because I like onions. I read it and then immediately went to the reviews to see if anyone had done it in a crock pot because that's how I wanted to cook mine. As I was reading the original recipe I was already thinking; "add wine because I have some, add herbs de provence because I love them, garlic because I put it in everything....that's what we all do. I appreciate Susan for the recipe and appreciate others just as much for offering alternate suggestions that I can TAKE or LEAVE. This ia a very good recipe just as is but feel free to make it "yours".

Aunt Wanda's Turkey Carcass Soup
I had a turkey carcass that I was going to have to toss or use. I found this recipe but didn't want to go shopping so I used what I had on hand. I added escarole, scallions, celery, carrots, salt and pepper and was one of the best soups I ever made. I think the escarole and torellini made it.
