My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking triumphs
Alot of my meals come out good, but one doesn't stick out more than another.
My cooking tragedies
One of my first attempts cooking for a boyfriend, I made steak (which I had never made before). I didn't have a grill so I used the broiler. I also used a dry cut of meat and pretty much made a well seasoned piece of cardboard! Haven't tried it that way since.

Easy Hummus
WOW! This is a really good and easy hummus recipe! I was pleasantly surprised, considering I didn't have Tahini (a sesame seed paste). I didn't let that deter me from making this recipe, which I doubled also. From a couple reviews I read, I added several shakes of salt and pepper. Then I added a small amount of sesame oil (probably 1/4 tsp. for a double recipe). I actually made the hummus without the sesame oil and it was still pretty good, but when I read the review about adding the oil, I had to put the oil it and I am so glad I did!! I do have to say that the 1 Tbsp. of bean liquid per batch was not nearly enough liquid, so I did add a couple Tbsp. of olive oil and even added about 1/2 cup more of the bean liquid! I know that seems that my hummus would be runny, but it's not. Don't be shy to tweak!! I am going to go eat my hummus now, have fun! P.S. I am doing what's called a "Daniel Fast", which is all fruit, veggies, nuts, beans and whole grains (basically anything that grows from a seed)...anyway, an approved fasting food is hummus and I knew I could find a recipe that was within my requirements!

Orange Smoothie
This is an excellent base recipe!! I believe the recipe is very simple and easy to alter depending on individual tastes. As I read in an earlier review, the brand of O.J. concentrate is an important part to the success of this smoothie. I used a Meijer brand and it was more bitter than I cared for and when I used the second half of the can for the second batch, I upped the sugar to half a cup and upped the vanilla extract to 1 1/2 tsp. I also used a canned whipped cream on top, which added a more creamy/frothy texture (was very good and did not make overly sweet!). Thanks Trudy for this awesome recipe!! Can't please everyone, but you have pleased me and my family (and apparently many others!)

Baked Potato Soup I
Awesome!!! My husband can't get enough and it is totally kid friendly :-) I always add in my favorite spices and it was all good. I use basil, parsley, oregano, garlic powder along with the salt and pepper. I do also add in some fresh minced garlic. For a shortcut, I have used the Oscar Mayer bacon pieces (not dried out bits--yuck) and it has been as flavorful as freshly fried bacon. As an added meat, I do use ham chunks to make this even more filling! I have to double this recipe since I have a BIG family, so a hearty potato soup with all that meat is a complete winner!! Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
