About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Homemade soups. Potato, chicken noodle, minestrone, french onion, I love them ALL!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother and my mom make fresh green beans during the holidays by simmering them overnight with ham hocks and fresh garlic. My brother and I would always sneak spoonfuls of them when Mom wasn't looking. They make the entire house smell amazing.
My cooking triumphs
The crab cakes. Mmmm...
My cooking tragedies
Since moving from sea-level to 5000 feet 3 years ago, I've had to forget everything I have ever known about baking.

Easy Apple Crisp
I've had some cans of apple filling for a while and was craving apple crisp. I didn't have any oatmeal so I tried this recipe and made it *exactly* as written. I'm extremely disappointed and the only way I think it could be made better is to not bother wasting perfectly good apple filling on it at all.

Father-in-Law's Scallops with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Bacon
I made this recipe as written, but it just wasn't good. Quite bland and just blah. The sauce was barely enough for one serving, so I would definitely recommend doubling or tripling the sauce portion of the recipe.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup
This soup turned out wonderful with a couple of changes... Therefore, I'm only giving it 4 stars. Instead of the water/broth mix, I used all broth. Also, I substituted a can of cream of celery soup instead of the evaporated milk, since it's what I had. Gave it a little more creamy texture and flavor than I think it would have had otherwise. I see a lot of complaints about it being too thin... If that's the case, once it's done take a cup or two out and blend it in the blender. Pour it back into the soup and it will help thicken it up.
