About this Cook
I am just learning to get creative in the kitchen. I always cooked dinner for the family, but the same old stuff out of boxes and cans. I am now watching the cooking channel and learning new things and trying them out at home. Some disasters (of course) that even the dog won't eat, but I'm getting better!
My favorite things to cook
I love soups and crock pot recipes that are ready when you get home and make the house smell wonderful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None, but I remember watching my grandma make homemade bread, doughnuts, sausage, you name it. Very talented lady. I wish I had paid more attention!!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinners when everything comes out right and I don't burn the rolls or forget something.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention... haha.

Curried Brown Rice
I've been on a diet with no potatoes or wheat so I have been eating a lot of brown rice as a side dish. It's okay, but soooo bland. This recipe was wonderful and I actually can't wait to make it again. Very tasty. Made exactly as directed.

Tuna Fish Salad
Very tasty! Will make it again and again. I used 2 small cans of tuna and only measured the lemon juice. I eyeballed the celery and onion and just added until it was crunchy enough for us.

Baked Scallops
Very, very good! Cooking time is perfect. I added garlic to the melted butter and cooked for a minute or two to infuse the flavor. Used the larger frozen scallops. Thawed them in cold water and dried thoroughly. Then I rolled the scallops in the breading instead of putting the breading on top. Absolutely excellent. Perfect texture. Can't wait to make these again. Served with garlic and butter Pasta Roni.
