Tuscan Villa
About this Cook
Married for 29 yrs to my high school sweetheart, 2 grown children, 2 rescued dogs, Marley and Jackson, work full-time, find cooking to be soothing, giving, gratifying, and an ever changing way of expression
My favorite things to cook
comfort foods, potatoes in all forms, all things Mexican
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family simply must have scalloped corn for Thanksgiving
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving as a wife I cooked dinner for my in-laws and parents. I managed to incorporate everyone's "traditional" foods and it was a hit!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving, the turkey would not get done. (I think it was still a bit frozen). We were supposed to eat dinner at 3 and ended up eating at something like 7pm. (my famous salsa and chips was tiding us over)

Chicken Tortilla Soup IV
This was yummy,but I did change things up a bit. I used a rotissere chicken (already cooked) and tortilla chips as well as chicken stock instead of broth. (richer flavor) I doubled (at least) the spices and added fresh chopped tomato and chile peppers. Then I topped the soup with pepper jack cheese..It's really tastier the next day. I will make this again...super easy!
