About this Cook
As a cook, I just can't seem to follow a recipe because I am always making my own changes, additions, substitutions, new recipes, etc. I just cringe when my now-adult daughters call me and ask me how to make one of my dishes. I always have to say "you know me, I don't really follow recipes" and then I do the best I can to try to explain how to make. My goal is to try to create real "recipes" for my dishes so they will have a hard copy to keep and pass on. Wish me luck! :-)

Jalapeno Popper Spread
My men LOVE this! Surprisingly for me, I followed the recipe without any "tweaks." On the day after (if there is any left) my men use it as a spread on sandwiches. Says it gives them a real kick!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
Nice addition to my main meal recipes. Didn't have time to put in the crockpot but still worked fine on stovetop. I did add another can of cream of chicken soup, a little milk and sprinkles of Italian seasoning and garlic. I needed a little more than the original recipe made and wanted it a little thinner. Thanks!

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake
Added green bean bottom layer as suggested by some other reviewers and used Cream of Mushroom soup vs Cream of Celery (not my fav) and boneless pork chops vs bone-in pork chops. Made a good winter all-in-one meal of boneless pork chops, hashbrown casserole and green beans. Gotta love the crunchy onion topping, too! Made my Recipe Box for Main Meals. Thanks! :-)
