About this Cook
I'm a busy newlywed living in south St. Louis with my husband, mini dachshund, and Siamese cat. Always trying new recipes and annoying the hubby in the process!
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet - my favorite thing to make is any kind of dessert. Lately, I've been obsessed with my dehydrator and natural foods. My husband and I usually eat healthy, but we've started following a low-carb diet. We have a serious sweet tooth, so I've been branching out into snacks & desserts made with sugar substitutes... I'm having fun experimenting with new recipes!

Ham and Beans
YUM!! I grew up with ham & beans, but my dad's recipe was always so bland. I had no idea the secret ingredient was brown sugar, but that makes perfect sense! I'm going to pass this recipe on to him, now... I can't wait to eat these leftovers! My husband really liked this recipe, too, and he has never had ham & beans before. Thanks for an easy and fantastic soup!

Hobo Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup
I cooked this after work one night, and did not use the slow-cooker. I browned 90% lean burger with onion and garlic, then drained well. I used frozen vegetables instead of canned - I always use fresh or frozen, never canned - and made my own beef broth from a powdered broth base/seasoning, instead of already-made. Instead of tomato sauce, I used fresh diced tomatoes. This recipe needs a lot of seasoning, because it is very bland as written. I was very generous with garlic salt, pepper, and dried parsley. I also added a tsp of Penzey's Beef Roast seasoning and used 1 tbsp of Melissa's fresh parsley paste. Season your heart out!! Next time, I'll be using two cans of diced tomatoes and adding half a bag of pearl onions.

Grandma Oma's Pickled Okra
This recipe as written is 3 stars - too basic for my taste, but 5 stars and YUM with my additions! I used a mix of 1/2 apple cider vinegar and 1/2 white vinegar. I added a pinch of white sugar, too. I didn't have full sprigs of dill, only minced dill for cooking, so I mixed this with the vinegar while it was boiling. I doubled the chili peppers and added a garlic clove to the jar of okra before adding the liquid. These were ready to eat after about 3 hours in the fridge. I will definitely make these again!
