About this Cook
I am growing to like cooking due to this amazing cookbook, 'The Pleasures of Cooking for One'. Since I generally cook just for me, and I hate tasting, this allows me to not waste food and use leftovers. I am trying new things and getting a little more confident!
My favorite things to cook
Pasta / Pork / Salmon / Beef / Vegtables
My favorite family cooking traditions
Zip. That's part of the problem.
My cooking triumphs
Mango salsa / 1 chicken dish I made for my boyfriend / risotto for my ex-husband /Really moist salmon / Pork Scallopini
My cooking tragedies
Just about everything else

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup
I have made this twice but 3rd time was the (unintended) charm. I was at the broth step when I realized I had none; I googled and got info that you could use 1 TBS soy sauce to 1 cup water as a sub. I cut that back to 3/4 TBS per cup. Also sub'ed allspice for cloves. Used only 1/2 cup half & half. Did everything else as directed, and wow love this. So do my dogs. I dropped some on the floor and they were all over it. It's not breed specific either - the lab and yorkie both begged for more!

Chiles Rellenos de San Joaquin
I had to make amends when I realized I didn't have the cojita cheese I thought I did. So I used the shredded 4-cheese Mexican mix you can get in any market. This solved the issue of dealing with the wrapping of cheese (although did take away from the authenticity). I also added salt to the sauce. I liked this! I only made 1 serving - to test it out - but I think I would make it for others the same way.

Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage
I used acorn squash, rosemary, and left over ground beef and it was still so good! The balsamic at the end is definitely a needed ingrediant - it makes the dish amazing!
