About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
Once, when on a low-fat kick, I made ground buffalo meatloaf and added oats to the mixture to bulk it up a bit. When I took the meatloaf out of the oven, there were NO juices in the pan whatsoever. I had baked a brick of dry meat. And unfortunately, for thatsame meal I made mashed potatoes and used low-fat yogurt to whip them up light and fluffy, instead of milk and butter. The whole thing was just gross, but DH and I ate it anyway....he choked down the meatloaf, while I ate the potatoes.

Caesar Salad Supreme
Made this as directed, minus the extra salt, because anchovies give you enough. Everyone in the family raved about it and used it as a dipping sauce the next night with vegetables. The next time I make it (and there will be a next time!) I will thin it a little more with olive oil/lemon juice, because this was too clumpy as-is.

Flatlander Chili
I've never made good chili before today... I've only made "ok" or "hmm" chili. But TODAY, I impressed my husband! I followed the recipe with only one change: canned diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. Worked great. Seasonings perfect for our family with two younger children -recipe can be tweaked if you like it hotter.

Champagne Punch IV
I used this recipe with one major tweak--I left out the simple syrup entirely. I don't care for overly-sweet punch. The lemon-lime soda and the white grape juice add all the sweetness it needs. This recipe, minus the syrup, fit the bill perfectly for a wedding reception I was catering. Guests were surprised that there was no alcohol in the punch- maybe a little disappointed, too! (lol) Since that wedding reception in Aug 2006, I have made this punch 3 or 4 other times, to great acclaim. A classy alternative to that yucky red punch we see far too often.
