About this Cook
I'm a single gal living with my 3 cat babies. I love to cook and bake, and will try anything once. I keep my mind and body healthy and whole with my food and herbal teas. I'm not a good measurer, but stuff thrown together usually works out pretty well. I like ourdoorsy stuff- hiking, biking, and camping. I love to crank up my music and dance around the kitchen as I cook and just have a good kitcheny time.
My favorite things to cook
Soups are my thing, year-round. And nothing goes better with soup than fresh baked bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big pot of chili on Halloween, sausage casserole for Christmas breakfast and a fish fry for Christmas dinner, and my mom always makes me her chocolate chip cheesecake for my birthday
My cooking triumphs
I've picked up bread baking in the last year, and have finally got the technique down to baking beautiful gourmet breads, and some pretty good muscles from kneading all that bread dough!
My cooking tragedies
Hmm, no tragedies per se, just things not turning out quite as well as I had hoped.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta
This was ridiculously good. I also finished the chops off in the oven smothered with the tomato mixture. If you're trying to cut calories, this dish is so rich I think it would do just fine without the feta. My husband said this is now his favorite dish!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce
This was so, soooooo good. I cleaned out my fridge and used 1 red pepper, 1/2 each of yellow and orange peppers, asparagus, red onion, and mushrooms, along with some thin sliced chicken. The cayenne bottle and I had a difference of opinion on how much should come out on the first shake and I think I put about a 1/4 cup in there (!), so it was really spicy, but all the extra ingredients and sour cream toned it down. Really good base recipe that's super easy to jazz up. Thank you for posting this!

Burrito Pie
This was a great basic recipe. I skipped the refried beans altogether and added a can of drained black beans to the meat mixture, added a package of taco seasoning as so many suggested, and used fresh jalapeno and serrano peppers instead of canned chiles. I used a lot more cheese, too, but that's personal preference. This was a really good and easy week night dinner that made great leftovers!
