About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas my family has enchiladas instead of a traditional dinner. This tradition started when my parents split up and we were too poor to afford a turkey will all the fixings.
My cooking tragedies
I once spent hours making a chicken pot pit from scratch, crust and all. I was transferring it from a cooling rack to the counter when the entire pan collapsed. Right after than I went and bought real pie pans instead of continuing to use the disposable kind.

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili
I thought this was amazing! The only thing we really did different was drain the kidney beans and add a little more broth to replace the liquid that would have come from the beans.

Zucchini Soup II
This was absolutely delicious! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. Instead of 1/2 a cup of margarine I sauteed the veggies in olive oil and added a little black pepper and garlic powder. I also used a low fat/low sodium soup and 2% milk. It was still rich and delicious!

Yellow Squash Patties
These were a great way to use extra squash or zucchini. They were delicious!
