About this Cook
Like to try new things, and experiment. I like to follow the spirit of a recipe, rather than the exact, unless I'm baking.
My favorite things to cook
Greek food, Pastas, breads.. heck, I like to try almost anything that sounds good... Won't eat Tomatoes (unless they are seeded), bell peppers, Okra or organ meats.

Waldorf Salad II
Perfect! I went to the bulk section of my local Sprouts and found just enough raisins and dried cranberries (yep, added some) to make this salad pop. Also, I cheat and use the pre-sliced apples I get at Sams and just dice these up. The lemon is important for my than just preventing the apples from browning, I think. Great, fresh flavor.

Herbed Greek Roasted Potatoes with Feta Cheese
Loved these, but left out the mint (sort of ambivalent about it). I used one large lemon (because I don't measure much) so whatever that produced was enough to give just a hint of lemon to the potatoes. Lots of oregano, and I also used some prepared Greek seasoning I saw while shopping for this recipe. Garlic is a must and I left in the water to better distribute the lemon juice.. the oil alone does create a crispier potato, but I think you don't get the same sort of flavor distribution you want. Feta at the end adds a sharp, delicious tang. If you like feta, you'll be glad you added it, but if you don't, skip it, the potatoes stand on their own.

Mom's Yeast Rolls
I made the mistake of adding more flour because, as the reviews said, the dough didn't look 'right' - wish I hadn't. The rolls turned out heavy, like biscuits and we didn't finish them all, odd for a big bread loving family. Ill try again, however, I chalk this up to learning, never made a yeast bread before.
