About this Cook
Married to highschool sweetheart-two kids, presently (2006) 5 and 10 years old. Travel nurse.

My cooking triumphs
Trying out new recipes and "changing" them up a bit to have something soo good! My problem is, I'll make something SOOO good, and then I can't repeat it because I just kind of "made it up"
My cooking tragedies
Something I made with eggplant and vinegar, with tomato paste. EE gads it was soo bad! Burning a few things.. most meals don't LOOK appetizing (I'm no Martha Stewart!) But boy, do I get a lot of compliments!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
I used jarred tomatoes (specialty) w tomato juice. No fresh basil in the house so I used frozen basil 'cubes'. Found in your freezer section. 10 small cubes, 1 cube = 1 tsp basil. Used NO butter (found it didn't need it) and used 1/2 and 1/2 (fat free). Salt and pepper to taste. Was super rich and creamy. Was less than 1 cup of half and half. Perfect paired with grilled cheese sandwich on french bread.

Classic Cinnamon Rolls
Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE! Who would have thought mashed potatoes could make such a difference! The amount is almost too large for a bread maker on 'dough' setting. Must take it out before it finishes rising. I made 12 rolls, BUT, each were the size of my head! 6 put in a 9x13 pan to control size (billowed over) and 6 put on cookie sheet. Drizzled with cream cheese frosting. Light and airy. PERFECT cinnamon roll recipe!
