Italian Tomato Pasta Salad
About this Cook
I am a marine wife. We were married on November 5, 2007. We have a beautiful 2 year old little girl named Marilynn and a handsome little man named Patrick. My favorite foods are sushi, gumbo, and hmmmm....basically anything cajun. :P
My favorite things to cook
Anything new and anything baked. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite time is Christmas and Thanksgiving. I love to help my grandmother with everything for those holidays. Even if we do have to make a pie for everyone. haha. I also love making great picnic/cook-out food like potato salad with my mom.
My cooking triumphs
I successfully made a German Chocolate cake for my husband's 20th birthday. I also get RAVE reviews for my cookies and baked goods now. :)
My cooking tragedies
lemon-pepper chicken...just did not work. I burnt it and put too much seasoning on it...whoops. However, my husband is sweet and tells me everything I cook is good. I also tried to make chicken cordon bleu (according to the recipe, mind you) and it was waaaay undercooked and we didn't realize it until we ate most of it. :( blehhhh! lol

Sweet Potato Casserole II
I'm not sure if it would have been different if I used fresh sweet potatoes instead of canned but using canned it was 4 stars. Alot of people complained that it was too sweet but in my opinion it wasn't sweet enough. lol. There also wasn't enough to fit in that sized pan so I mixed up a little more. I added the marshmallows throughout because I'm pregnant and have been craving them and I think that saved this for me. haha. Everyone else said it was great but there was still some on some left on their plates. I'll probably make this again with more sugar and cinnamon.

Easy Cheese Ball II
I'm not a big cheese person so my opinion didn't really count but my husband LOVED it when I made it last year so I made it again this year. We had guests this year and they loved it, too. I love how easy it is to make and it's gone fairly quickly. I'll be making this every year as hubby requested. :)

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
This is a great recipe. My husband is a major meat-eater and he still loves them. He actually requests these. We make it a little different. Instead of using hot sauce, we use Worchestershire sauce and it comes out fabulous. It was a little strong for me this time...but I'm pretty sure that's because my husband was "helping" me and added more sauce after I had already put extra in twice. lol. Anyway, these are amazing and good for you...definitely 5 stars!
