About this Cook
I've cooked for myself since I've been supporting myself. I used to just cook to eat, but now I am learning to cook with fresh ingredients and to really enjoy the meal. I also like to cook different recipes, I rarely cook the same recipe twice.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna is a personal favorite. Meatloaf is also a favorite dish, but I always try something different.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's potato salad is the best I've ever had, and the closest thing to a family tradition that I still follow. My mother's mother used to cook a lot of Swedish dishes, but most of them are a bit bland for my taste.
My cooking triumphs
Every time my guests and I enjoy the meal!
My cooking tragedies
Every time I've passed out with something in the oven or on the stove.

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup
Great recipe! I used beef stock, added more corn starch, used broccoli and water chestnuts because I had them. I also used rice vinegar which I think is much more authentic, and more than the recipe calls for - the sour is what I find is missing from too many restaurants.. Used chili oil instead of sesame. Definitely cut the chicken into very thin slivers, not cubes or slices - cut it while it's partially frozen and it's really easy! And when you cut the chicken this way, add it after corn starch and vinegar and cook for no more than a minute or two, that small it is cooked almost as soon as its added to the mixture. Finally, I added sriracha to help spice it up and add more flavor. Great recipe that I'll make again and again!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini
This was an excellent dish. I used more spinach, more garlic, and sauteed some onions with the sauce. I'll definitely make it again!

Catfish Saint James
This was easy to make and very tasty! I thought there was too much flour in this recipe, and a bit more butter than necessary, but otherwise a keeper!
