About this Cook
I am 38 years old, I love to cook, and I am addicted to cookbooks! LOL
My favorite things to cook
I have a few favorites, but my taste is really all over the board. It varies from day to day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My boyfriend is not always receptive to what I want to try. So, every couple of weeks, I will go to my parents' house, and we will cook together. I love it!

The Original Fantasy Fudge
The original recipe says to boil the sugar mixture until the temperature reaches 234°F on a candy thermometer. I've made this every year for the last 15 years or so. Trust me, 5 minutes of boiling WILL NOT bring the mixture to 234°. It takes at least twice that long, maybe longer. Here is the actual original recipe. http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/fantasy-fudge-51833.aspx

Tacos in Pasta Shells
I'm giving this 5 stars because it is a great basic recipe. I did change a few things, however. I used packaged taco seasoning mix instead of the salt and chili powder. Also, because my guy will not eat cream cheese, I used re-fried beans instead. It helped hold the mixture together, and it was very tasty! The cheese I used was a shredded Mexican-blend.

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast
I've made this on several occations, although never in the slow cooker. Always in the oven. As is, it is extremely salty! I like the flavor, though, so I keep trying it. I've tried using reduced sodium gravy mix, and it's still super salty. This last time, I replaced the brown gravy mix with cracked peppercorn gravy mix for steak (1.25 oz). It doesn't have any sodium at all. It was SOOO much better, and still plenty salty enough.
