Eggplant Tomato Bake
Simple Hamburger Stroganoff
About this Cook
I'm a garden designer professionally, and when I'm home I love to get creative and try new recipes in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love rich, creamy pastas, and it's fun to sneak all kinds of vegetables into tomato and spaghetti sauces (my boyfriend barely notices). I also enjoy trying out new desserts, especially when guests are coming over.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother passed down a recipe for poppyseed chicken that completely "wow"s everyone who tries it!

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff
This was excellent. So quick and easy to make, and then so tasty! As other reviewers suggested, I used only half the cream cheese called for (actually I used neufchatel cheese in order to cut back on fat a bit), and I used fresh sliced mushrooms instead of canned. I sauteed the mushrooms and some diced onions together, then browned the meat (I used ground turkey) with them. I added seasoned salt for a little more flavor. I used low fat sour cream and the 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup. And it was delicious! My boyfriend took the first bite and simply raved. Then later he went back for a huge helping of seconds. I will be making this again. A quick and easy, delicious dinner that only used two pots - a great find!
