About this Cook
i have a baby, a dog, and a little ginger mister. now that life is crazy, its hard to cook anything, but i always find some good stuff on here!
My favorite things to cook
CASSEROLES! i lovvvve casseroles! i also like to make steak and chicken marinades for my friends. apparantly my buds rave about them being the best they ever had, which is awesome because i cant taste it to tell
My favorite family cooking traditions
i dont really have any. i actually prefer to go to family functions and have everything already made for me, hahaha!
My cooking triumphs
guacamole, chicken and steak marinade, cake, muffins, stuffed peppers(half veg, half meat), cheesecake, cheesey potatoes(from a family recipe, not on here), roast beef, vegetable casseroles, green bean casserole, etc... oh and i can kick the out of boxed mac and cheese with my additions! its my lazy day food
My cooking tragedies
um.... one time i made a green bean casserole dish i found on here that asked for soy sauce. i thought it sounded interesting so i tried it. one bite and it was all in the trash. DONNNT DOOO ITTTT

Calico Squash Casserole
ive made this a few times and loved it! i only changed a few things... i left out the pimento peppers(not a fan), i used 2 cans of water chestnuts(i love the crunch), and i added extra squash, and made sure that the zucchini was the same amount as the squash. also, i use about 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic(lovvvve garlic) and added garlic salt instead of regular salt, i also add about a teaspoon of fresh ground peppercorn instead of white. i added about 1 1/2 cup shredded colby jack(dont like cheddar unless in cheesey potatoes), and i used 4 tablespoons of butter and a quarter cup of mayo. thats just way too much in my opinion, especially the mayo. i agree with a few comments that its too crumby, so i only make half the crumb mixture and put it on top.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
1) forgot the red pepper 2) didn't have cayenne pepper, so i used cajun seasoning and tonys creole... which the hubby actually put in 3) got boullion powder packets by mistake 4) used brown sugar instead of white 5) used a whole can of beer 6) used 2 cans of kidney beans instead of the 3 chili beans 7) store didn't have green chili peppers, so i used 3 red chili peppers 8) used 5 pieces of bacon i cooked and the mister crumbled them in 9) sauteed the onions, celery, and garlic in the bacon fat 10) he likes it really spicy so i added about a Tbs more of the hot sauce to HIS taste. It's going to sit in the fridge until tomorrow when the hubby man takes it to work! he tasted it and said it was good! bad thing is, im a vegetarian so i couldnt taste my handywork! ive actually never made chili before! im interested to hear if he thinks it tastes better the next day since the flavors will have a chance to marinade over night!

Polish Style Lasagna
my husband and i literally just got done eating this! it was really good, but the potato was insanely dry! i added more water, and it was still very hard to spread. because of the other reviews, i made more of the mashed potato to add an extra layer on top, which i followed with cheese. i also mixed in my saute(1 and 1/2 white onion, 2 green onion stalks, 1 celery stalk, minced garlic) in the with potato, as well as garlic salt(instead of regular salt), ground pepper, basil, parsley, and dill(loooove dill). instead of regular cream cheese, i used the chive and onion kind. if i make this again, i will definately add milk to the potatoes. they stuck to the roof of both of our mouths! i may add a layer of kraut, but my husband hates it. ill just have to sneak it in!
