About this Cook
I'm 34 and keep myself busy with college full time. I like to cook gourmet meals for my boyfriend, go to movies, concerts, and plays. I love to swim, and I have a huge array of hobbies and interests. I'm a gypsy at heart though, and in the past 10 years have moved around the USA. I just recently moved back to my home town about 3 years ago.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy
I thought these had good flavor and were easy to make, my husband thought they were good, but a bit salty. I didn't realize I was out of sherry so I changed the gravy and used a can of cream of mushroom soup and some water instead and that was good. I let the gravy cook with the meat for about 15 minutes on low to just get the flavors blended. I think the saltiness my husband tasted came from that soup. Next time I would go strictly by the recipe or use low sodium soup. Otherwise, a good fast recipe for those days when you're just looking for comfort food. Served with mashed potatoes and corn.

Hugh's Dry Rub
I hate to give any recipe a bad review, but we just didn't care for this. We both felt it was way too salty and salt was the first flavor I tasted. I didn't think it was too spicy, and thought the spice level was ok. I did scale this down for 8 servings, so it is possible the measurements may have been slightly off, but I did follow the recipe as written. We both felt this tasted southwestern, which wasn't really what we were looking for. I may try this again in the future, but I would reduce the amount of salt by at least half, and perhaps add a very small amount of sugar or brown sugar.

Marinade for Chicken
We thought this marinade had a really great flavor, and my chicken came out moist. I do think that it was a little salty for our tastes though, and if I make this again, I will leave out the additional salt and use low sodium soy sauce. I added a few shakes of red pepper flakes to add a bit of spice which really livened it up some. Other than the saltiness this was great.
