Foolproof Rib Roast
About this Cook
I'm a proud Army wife! I try to cook healthy and delicious as cheaply as possible.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook healthy things but I'm not a crazy health food nut. Everything in moderation but the less fat I have to put into something the better.
My cooking triumphs
I'm surprised everytime I cook! I'll take 2 or 3 recipes and make up my own version of something in between using what is in the fridge and pantry. My kids love hearing it is a "Mommy made it up" night! Usually it is surprisingly good! My kids say I should have a show on the Food Network. :)
My cooking tragedies
One time I made my mother-in-law a birthday cake. Right after I finished icing it I opened the cabinet above it and a big can of Slim-fast fell on it! I was mortified.

Sonoran Tilapia
We really liked this. I used about 1 pound of fish and had plenty of sauce. I took the advice of others and did not salt the fish after the creole seasoning but I did salt the sauce. I also left out half of the red pepper flakes as others suggested. It was still plenty spicy. I did not have any wine so I used a tablespoon or so of sherry. After 20 minutes I felt my sauce was still too thin so I used a bit of corn starch to thicken it. Worked great and the sauce stayed on top of the fish instead of running onto the plate. I'll make this again.

Kale and Feta Salad
I can't believe what a difference the kale massage makes! Fantastic! The fam said that I could have used less vinegar. I subbed dried cranberries and walnuts. Kale is cheap here so I'm sure we will be eating this all summer.

Sweet and Sour Pork III
This was my first try at sweet and sour anything. I had grilled two Asian marinated pork tenderloins the night before so I chopped one up into bite-sized pieces instead of deep frying the pork. I also used fresh pineapple so for the juice I put a few pieces in the Nutri-bullet with a bit of water and pulverized them. Everything else was just as written. It was delicious. Served it over rice. I am so glad to make it fresh and not rely on bottled sauces.
