About this Cook
I am currently trying to improve my cooking skills since my boyfriend moved in; I enjoy cooking for others so I get some feedback!
My favorite family cooking traditions
During the week, our family (when I was growing up) would get dinner on the go. But my dad (a widower) would make a traditional sit-down dinner on Sundays. He made the most delicious, yet simple meals.
My cooking triumphs
One 4th of July I went all out and made all the dishes for the 4th of July feast from Still Life with Menu. It was a big hit even though the temperature and humidity were awful!

Cabbage Roll Casserole
I liked this recipe. I saw other people said the recipe was bland and watery. I used half the amount of beef broth and seasoned the beef with salt, pepper, and worcestershire sauce. I also sweated the onions with some garlic.

Curry Chicken Salad with Grapes
I liked this recipe. I gave it 4 stars because I substituted low-fat plain yogurt for the butter. I will definitely make this again. I might try it with craisins or perhaps dried cherries.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup
I really liked this recipe but I used Farmland Skim Plus Milk since that was what I had. Next I will use whole milk since fat adds a little extra flavor. I also added garlic powder to give it a little oomph. Will definitely make again.
