About this Cook
I'm beginning to do my "growing-up" and my family has always cooked, except my parents! haha. So I'm now learning the ways of the business. Luckily my boyfriend knows quite a few things, or I wouldn't know as much as I do already!
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of pasta, soups, mexican dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Touching raw meat and successfully making my g-ma's favorite recipes.

Nana's Squash Casserole
I don't know why I said chopped squash... I meant cooked. Anyhow, you can use 3 cups of squash if desired. I found it does help to use a little more than 2 cups. Also, yes, you can sustitute butter and margarine out, AND cut back slightly if you choose. I add more cheese than the recipe calls for as well. The only other thing I wanted to say.... someone said they cut out the sugar. It's only a SMALL amount, and the sugar helps the flavor come out in the dish. Anytime you add sugar to a salty dish, it helps accentuate the flavor of your meal. I learned this from my grandmother as well. :) I hope I helped fix my recipe... there's no edit button. haha. Thank you for the wonderful reviews! Alyssa
