About this Cook
I am a working woman who loves to cook. I hope that I can use my love of cooking in a way that makes a difference after I retire.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is soup. I make big batches and freeze in individual servings for easy transport to work.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to give food gifts for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I have started putting together my own spice mixes. I consider it my hobby. I've been giving them out as Christmas presents for the past three years. My friends encourage me by asking for refills in the middle of the year.
My cooking tragedies
I learn from my misakes, so there have been no "tragedies" in my kitchen.

Chicken and Black Bean Casserole
I made this today. Great starter recipe! Next time I think I will add garlic and salsa to the sauce. I cooked in a casserole dish and covered with aluminum foil. Came out perfectly. Thanks for posting a great idea.

Potatoes Madras
I made this tonight and it was OK. I would have like it to be saucier. I added more curry and a little siracha to kick it up. I think that I will continue looking for a recipe with cauliflower and Indian spices. This was not one that I would would try again.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting
Thank you, JJ, for putting into words how to make cream cheese frosting. I am not a baker and every time I asked someone how to make cream cheese frosting they would say. "I don't know. I never measured." I made this today and it turned out perfectly! Thank you!
