About this Cook
I watched my mother make amazing meal after meal for a family of 8 with an empty cupboard and no fancy tools or gadgets, I call this love food! Today, I cook and bake for my children just like she did I suppose. Each night I anticipate for the silence over our dinner table after I serve a meal I made because I know I made a winner. "It's so good no one wants to talk Mom" I cook for silence....

Sloppy Joes II
I pulled back considerably on the brown sugar and at the suggestion of another member added in a 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce. was still way too sweet, too thick and no real live flavor. I spent another 30 minutes trying to fix it. Sorry but this is a 1 star recipe at best.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo
Do give this recipe a try. As many of us on here I “tweaked” it according to what I had on hand and to what my family likes. It is the basic rue, flour and stock, as in the milk. I used to be a bit nervous making rue but once mastered there is never a need to buy any sauce of any sorts. My only error in this recipe was skipping the salt with the pasta and the 1 tablespoon in the sauce. Add the salt! Just keep adding a mixture of your choice with the milk, half and half and cheese until you see the desired density you enjoy. I added broccoli, mushrooms, chicken and definitely the cheese. A great first basic recipe everyone should learn. Good posting and thanks!

Oven Fried Chicken IV
I was disappointed with the outcome and was so let down after the effort. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly on the seasoning level only. I added garlic powder, thyme, sage, chicken seasoning, salt, pepper and chilli powder. Perhaps this is where it fell apart but the cream mixture of sour cream and a splash of half and half cream I was sure would add something different. It didn’t matter one bit, sour cream added nothing but extra fat and cost where water and any seasoning mixture would do.
