About this Cook
Married, no kids. My husband loves to eat, so I love to find new recipes to keep our meal plans interesting. Most of his favorites are recipes I found here.
My favorite things to cook
Italian foods, meat and potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No traditions. I think that's why I come to this website so much! I'm really trying to fill up my recipe book with good stuff.
My cooking triumphs
My chicken fettuccine. It's pretty basic, but I never once followed a recipe to make it. It's easy and delicious. I make it for company and everyone thinks it's some gourmet thing that I went to a lot of trouble for. They say it's better than what they get in some restaurants.
My cooking tragedies
One time I mistakenly added garlic powder instead of onion powder to my meatloaf. The smell was ridiculous! We tried to eat it anyway. It was terrible, and my husband got an awful migraine afterward. Gotta look at those labels a little closer!

Turkey Wild Rice Soup II
This was absolutely fantastic! I made it with turkey tenderloins I got from the butcher at the grocery store. I substituted broccoli for the celery, and chicken broth for the turkey stock. I will definitely be trying this again with Thanksgiving leftovers!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
This soup is deee-LISH-ous! I made a few minor modifications. I used chicken broth from a can instead of water and boullion, and fresh broccoli in place of the celery. I sprinkled a pinch of cheddar cheese on top of mine, but it tastes great without it it too. I loved every bite, and so did my husband. He says this recipe is a keeper. We watch our calories, so this soup will work perfectly in our menu planning. Oh, and it's very filling. A cup and a half (350 calories) was plenty, so we have leftovers for a low cal lunch too!

Meatball Nirvana
Really just ok for me. I used 85/15 ground beef, and I thought they came out pretty dry. They could really use some sauce. The flavor was ok - kind of meatloafy, as one reviewer said. In fact, the ingredients are almost identical to a meatloaf recipe I got from this site! Also, I cut back on the Italian seasoning and oregano, and l felt they still overpowered the flavor of the meatball. My husband said "they were alright, but not special". I'll look for another recipe next time I make meatballs.
