About this Cook
Both my parents are wonderful cooks, however my mother announced to me several years ago that she never really liked to cook and that floored me. I asked her how she could have been so good at something she didn't really like and she said it just had to be done. I love to cook and experiment with different things. Some dishes I put together without a recipe, just because I think it will sound good and I don't have too many rejects. I consider myself lucky to have a family that will go along with this experimentation.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook quick dishes with natural ingredients. I do a lot of my cooking from scratch for the health of my family.

Sarah's Chicken Lasagna
I just made this for the second time and won third place at a small pasta throw down with a group of friends. I didn't add the pimento peppers or the bell pepper as I don't like them, but that did not harm the recipe at all. Well done recipe!

Chicken and Broccoli Braid
This recipe works out every time I use it. I leave out the peppers (we don't like them), almonds (allergy) and I make my own biscuit dough instead of the crescents (we don't eat canned dough). I believe this is such a good recipe that even the changes to suit my family do not harm the overall great taste of this recipe. SUPER!!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup
I have three words for you. TO DIE FOR! I have never had mushroom soup made from scratch, but this is what my mouth and brain said it should be like. I left out the dill b/c I didn't have any and used less lemon juice and less parsley like previous reviews suggested. I like onion, but 2 cups seemed a little too much for me so I used 1 cup. This was very good and any future mushrooms that cross my path will become THIS soup not salad decorations.
