About this Cook
I am also an avid dog lover! I just recently adopted a Blue Heeler. I am waiting for him to turn a year old. Then I can start him on agility training and put to rest some of the high energy he has!
My favorite things to cook
One of my favorite things to do is take a favorite high calorie food and recreate it to a less fattening, lower calorie food. Then not telling my family that I did. (Hee! Hee!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of our favorite traditions is for everyone to pick a favorite dish for their birthday or holiday then I make it. Sometimes it gets challenging.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I can pull together a major meal and get it on the table with everything the right temp, that is a cooking triumph.
My cooking tragedies
The Thanksgiving that I had my Dad buy my grocery list. My family and I drove 2 hours to make him a Thanksgiving dinner. We were having Key Lime pie for dessert. It wouldn't set in the oven. And I couldn't figure out why. I had made it numerous times before with no issues. Embarrassed, I started to throw away the pie. When I opened the trash can, I saw the empty container of evaporated milk....not condensed milk. God bless my family, they "drank" the pie that night.
Recipe Reviews 7 reviews
Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake
Overall, this was a great dinner. We substituted Italian turkey sausage to cut down on the fat and calories. I personally feel fresh herbs make a huge difference compared to dry. But realistically, dry are readily available. I think fresh minced garlic cloves would be a great addition. The recipe is very easy to make and after work, those are my favorite recipes. We gave it 4 stars because their seems to be too much oil used. We cut back on the oil, and it was still too much. We will definitely make it again...and again....and again.

Classy Green Bean Casserole
Like other reviews, there was something missing in this recipe. I think the black pepper amount was too much. I used some seasoned salt, garlic powder and celery salt. I agree, too much sour cream. If I make again, I would reduce the sour cream. The original green bean casserole is still better.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
I loved the flavors in this cheesecake. The straining of the raspberries was time consuming. But I don't think you would have the same rich flavor with seedless jam. The consistency of the cheesecake itself was just right. Some cheesecake sit like a brick when eatean, this was lighter. The topping of fresh raspberries and white chocalate shavings was beautiful.
