About this Cook
Married for 16 years, 1 son and two dogs. Full time work both at home and on the job plus grad school! Love crafts and reading when I get the time and am not too tired. Enjoy Steelers football and Penguin Hockey.
My favorite things to cook
Anything! Followed closely by trying new recipes or inventing my own. I've just recently been bitten by the cooking bug. I have a hard time not logging on to find a new way to fix something for every meal I get time to cook! I've added several new receipes I hope are accepted for others to share
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade apple butter, grilling, my mom's Thanksgiving stuffing, Saturday morning pancakes and bacon or sausage, Friday night homemade pizza.
My cooking triumphs
The first roast I ever cooked in our first apartment. The stove was so small that the oven door would not completely close because the pan was too big! But I got it cooked!
My cooking tragedies
An italian soup that ended up being just a big tasteless pot of noodles! That was when I learned to follow the recipe to the T the first time you make it. Now that I am more proficient I can experiment the first time, but wow was it a mistake that time!

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup
Excellent and easy soup! We added extra barley which then required more chicken broth. The pearl barley does the soaking and it was ready in the hour of simmering. We threw in some shredded rotisserie chicken to get it used up. I didnt' have any celery in the house so I substituted with celery salt and cut back on the regular salt. Will be a definite addition to my soup making rotation!

Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon
This is a very nice casserole! We love the sweet, buttery regular SPC, but this is a refreshing change. I did add sauted onion and garlic (small onion and 1 clove). I folded it in after processing the rest of the ingredients together. Thanks for the recipe :)

Creamed Spinach with Onions and Bacon
I was searching but could not find a previous recipe so I thought I'd give this one a try. It wasn't till after I started that I realized the recipe called for two packages of spinach and I only had one. I used all ingredients as called for except the one package and I cut back on the milk by 1/4 cup. I added a little nutmeg too. Although the bacon was's not my favorite flavor to go with the creamed spinach. I might try some parmesan next time too. Thanks!
