About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything really. I love it when people are like, wow how much effort when in to this... I love it when my husband says he would rather stay home and eat my food then eat out. He's been all over the world and tried everything so that is truly an ultimate compliment to me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday when I was a teenager in my parents house, it was my job to make spaghetti for dinner. My parents would always invite people over to try my different adventures in pasta!
My cooking triumphs
Well over a year ago I gave up my microwave and it's unbelievable the stuff I have learned to do now that I don't have it. (Long story short my kids lit it on fire with some popcorn...LOL) I enjoy cooking a hundred percent more now and everything tastes so much better. My friends/parents are considering giving up theirs now too because we've been such a success without it.
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger I attempted a spaghetti with a sweet/sour sauce... It came out horrible and I was so embaressed!!! so much for that idea, I don't suggest trying it. It truly was horrific, straight off the plate to the trash...

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad
I used this as a base but didn't have all on hand which is why the four stars. So added pears, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, lemon juice, celery, raisins, turmeric, and mayo. Did NOT have apples, onions, grapes, pecans, or golden raisins. So umm... it's all interchangeable right?? Served this on popovers with spinach leaves. Was DELISH and would do it again. I have a similar recipe that uses apple cider vinegar and dried cranberries so just a thought of how creative with this recipe you can get! EnjoY!

Colorful Corn Chowder
Kids thought this was really good and hubby happily took it to work for lunch. I added celery to the veggies. I also used two cans of corn. Added extra water to make a little more. Next time I might sprinkle some crumbled sausage on top with the cheese! On a side note all I had was potato pearls and I went ahead with it anyway. There IS a difference and although I made it work I wasn't able to follow liquid recommendations as closely. I knew that would be the case. Wish I had flakes around my house but I don't! Oh well. :)

Cabbage and Dumplings
I added carrots and red bell peppers to veggies. Also some crumbled Jimmie Dean sausage. Kids gobbled all of it! I liked it the way it was but some felt the need to add teriyaki sauce.
