About this Cook
Former Pampered Chef consultant, part-time job but full-time mom now. Live in Kansas with a "meat & potatoes" husband and 2 hungry teenagers!
My favorite things to cook
I love presentation, so colorful casseroles (Mexican & Chinese cuisine) and meals with leftovers for lunch the next day!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom didn't cook a lot, but my husband's mom always did it up right. Chicken w/noddles over mashed potatoes, Cooked Shredded Wheat w/poached eggs and Taco Salad are our stand-bys
My cooking triumphs
Meal variations using cream soups - I got a lot of them!
My cooking tragedies

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)
Joined Weight Watchers so constantly on the look out for a low point recipe. This totally met my GREEK side! I took the advice of other reviewers and used Greek Non-fat yogurt (so no need to strain) and added the dill weed, pinch of sugar and onion powder and was ABSOLUTELY thrilled with this dip!!

Ham and Beans and More
I've always struggled with getting the right rich taste from ham & beans without a flavor packet. This was SPOT ON! I had already started the recipe with beans, ham and water realizing that maybe it was too late to do anything but salt it and move on. But when I found this recipe, I simply added the garlic, chopped onion, olive oil, chopped celery and cumin and WOW! Never knew it could be this easy and good! Will DEFINITELY do this again!!!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
