About this Cook
I'm a medium-height, too-skinny brunette with glasses and a quirky sense of humor. I'm hoping to find cheap, healthy recipes here- ones that are relatively easy to make. I have almost no experience with baking- yeast? Where would I get that?- but I know how to follow a recipe. In addition to the normal cooking challenges, I also struggle with Crohn's disease and the special... let's say 'learning opportunities' it presents me with in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
My grandfather's Honeymoon Beans, Sauerbraten with homemade gingersnap gravy, cornbread, pasta, savory green beans and penny carrots. Not all at the same time, of course.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the 'baby pancakes' tradition my family had when I was growing up. The little accidental drips were the babies, small pancakes were the kids, regular-sized were Mommy pancakes, and then Dad would take the last four-pancakes' worth of batter and make one big Daddy pancake, which he'd flip with the skillet.
My cooking triumphs
Definitely the Honeymoon Beans and the Sauerbraten. My husband loves them both, and still brags about the latter as an example of my cooking ability!
My cooking tragedies
Thankfully, not too many of these. A couple batches of burnt cornbread, which always makes me sad. Oh, and the first time I tried Chicken Saltimbocca, I halved the chicken but forgot to halve the salt and pepper. Oops!

Roasted Red Pepper Soup
Really tasty! Don't really care for mushrooms at my place so left them out- didn't miss them. This is good with or without tortellini.

Cincinnati Chili I
Excellent recipe. The taste is just right! I followed other reviewers' advice and added extra cinnamon- it really helped.

Easy Baked Tilapia
Some of the broccoli did come out a little brown, and the fish was a little burnt on the bottom. Other than that, excellent recipe- everything tasted great, and it was very easy to cook! Will definitely make again, with slightly shorter cooking time.
