About this Cook
Living the dream in PDX
My favorite things to cook
Soup in the winter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made Ox-tail stew around the holidays. My dad stuffs a mean turkey and makes a Hollandaise sauce that is to die for... literally, watch your arteries.
My cooking triumphs
One time I made Beef Wellington for New Year's Eve with the help of my mom and my girlfriend. Our stove broke halfway through the preparation and we had to transport everything to a friend's house to finish cooking it. It turned out awesome!!! But this one 'alternate' sauce we made smelled like burnt plastic and chemicals... not sure what happened there.
My cooking tragedies
Once I tried to deep-fry some falafel but the oil wasn't hot enough and it all turned to oily mush. I'm currently learning the subtleties of yeast bread. If anyone knows some good yeast wisdom please pass it along. (By telepathy of course, because this site does not allow users to send each other messages for some odd reason)

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
If you like this dish but always thought the basic recipe (cream of mushroom, canned beans, onion stuff) could be improved than you were right! I recommend following this recipe but cutting out some of the heavier ingredients (maybe use light sour cream and 3/4's of the cheese called for). You could also add some fresh mushrooms.
