About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like to make bread with my stand mixer. There is something about timing it yourself that makes the bread process more enjoyable. As far as meals, my "specialty" is Paprika Chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Granny used to have her whole family over ever other Sunday and would make a huge meal. A lot of times there would be two main dishes even. The one thing that she didn't do was drinks. Her kitchen was always a mess when her whirl wind of cooking was done. She wouldn't let anyone help clean it up either, she said she wanted to save it so that she'd have something to do when everyone left. She said it kept her from being too sad that her family was gone.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married in the summer of 2008, I made a linguine, swiss cheese, and ham stew. The picture looked so yummy. It smelled awful and my husband had to throw it out because I was too busy getting sick in the bathroom. The Chinese restaurant down the street saved our dinner that night. The egg rolls were delicious though.

Chili Seasoning Mix II
After reading the reviews, I made a few adjustments (doesn't everyone?). I cut the flour back to 2 tbsp, although I don't think the full 1/4 of a cup would have made a big difference. I also didn't have dried minced garlic. I substituted 1 tsp garlic powder and 4 garlic cloves, minced. I was also a little confused as to if this made enough to equal multiple packets or just one, but when I mixed it all up it looked about the same as 1 packet that you would buy in the store. I put it all in my normal recipe instead or the store bought packet. It wasn't EXACTLY the same, just a little different. It was actually slightly better!

Amish White Bread
This is a very soft, very good bread. I have made it countless times. It is a sweet bread, so a lot of time I halve the sugar called for in the recipe. Delicious!

Slow Cooker Pork Cacciatore
After reading some reviews, I cooked this as directed except I halved the pasta sauce and amount of diced tomatoes. I regret doing that! It does make a lot of sauce but that sauce is needed to stew all 4 of the chops. Next time I will use the whole recipe and make spaghetti another night because the sauce is delicious! Some people complained that it was a little watery, which is true but that doesn't bother me. Others suggest throwing everything in the crock pot without browning the chops or sauteing the vegetables. This would still taste good, but browning helps keep the meat from falling apart. Sauteing adds a level of taste to the vegetables that stewing alone will not get.
