About this Cook
My idea of a perfect recipe is something that is inexpensive, nutritious and fast...and something both my husband I enjoy! I spent a short period as a vegetarian, but now I just focus on having a "plant-focused" diet and let a little meat sneak into our menu from time to time.

Chicken with Mustard Sauce
This is a very forgiving recipe! I didn't have all the ingredients, but played around with what I had and it turned out amazing! Here's what I did: I sauteed a quarter of an onion, the added half a cup of sherry and reduced it a bit. Then I added half a cup of heavy whipping cream and nearly 3 TBS of mustard (I had stone ground mustard, not dijon) and cooked until it thickened up. Served with sauteed kale (with onion and garlic) which went really well!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup
This was good, however, I think I prefer tomato soup recipes that use tomato juice instead of chicken broth as a base. This just didn't have the rich tomato flavor that I'm looking for.

D'Amaretti Biscotti
The flavor of this biscotti is really good, however, I agree it is too crumbly. Also, the dough spread out a lot while it was baking which made the sides get very thin and burn a bit. Makes me think this might be a bit too much butter, maybe? I used a pizza cutter to slice them which made cutting them up really easy! Also, I would really recommend watching one of the biscotti recipes from this site before undertaking biscotti for the first time.
