About this Cook
I've been married 17 years and have 2 teenagers. I like to cook and read recipe books.
My favorite things to cook
I like recipes that will allow for leftovers. I especially like stews and casseroles that will give me enough for 2 meals during the week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of my fondest recollections of my mom's cooking (she was a great cook) are the easy meals she made when there was no time or nothing in the house. Like chipped beef gravy on toast or hamburger gravy on toast. But there's really no traditions to speak of.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few crockpot meals that disentegrated by dinner time. And nice fish steaks have turned into rubber after I've cooked them. I avoid most fish and crockpot recipes.

Pecan Pie V
Very good! Mine turned out "puffy" , too. Next time I won't let so much air whip into the filling. I made it for a pecan pie loving friend and he LOVED the crunchy surface (almost like a thin merangue layer.) It wasn't goopy and syrupy like my traditional recipe. I will definitely make this again!

Bob's Stuffed Mushrooms
These were fantastic! Only thing is, nobody could taste the clams...and since I tripled the recipe for a big party, the clams added about $6 to the cost. I think I'll leave them out next time to save some bucks. Everyone loved them!

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
This is NOT a difficult recipe...I don't know why some think so. Use 2 rotisserie chickens to cut down the cooking time. Throw everything together and put into 3- 8x8 aluminum casserole dishes. Eat one...freeze the others. It is an awesome dish to have on hand for crazy evening when there's no time to cook, OR if a friend is sick and needs a dinner taken to their house. I add either French fried onion rings to the top, or crushed/buttered Ritz crackers. Also, my original recipe for this didn't call for curry's good either way.
