About this Cook
Cooking is not my thing. My husband is an excellent cook, but has no time. I'm a simple cook trying to please a picky husband. Ugh!

Taco Seasoning I
Better than seasoning packets. Slightly spicier. Use 1 tbsp. per 1 lb of meat. I stumbled upon this after the meat was browned and I realized that I didn't have a taco seasoning packet. My 3 picky kids liked it too.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
This is a great soup! The first time I made it, it was not thick enough. I read a review stating that to thicken, you must stir the flour/butter/milk roux mixture for at LEAST 5 minutes. So the second time I made it, I added a bit more flour to it (1 more TBSP) and stirred about 10 minutes to be SURE it got good and thick before I added it to the soup. I also added 3/4 package of bacon. This will be a regular recipe for me! Pretty easy and super good!

Beef Stew VI
This was VERY easy. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it did not thicken up. I used 2x the cornstarch and it still was watery. Next time I make it, I will dredge the meat in flour and sear it first. Maybe that will help it thicken up better.
