About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Enchiladas, Chicken & Spinich Manicotti with Artichokes & Sundried Tomatoes, Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Dumpling Soup, Garlic Potatoes, and I love to bake...ANYTHING!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chocolate Amarreto Cake at Christmas, Pies at other holidays. My immediate and extended family looks forward to my desserts.
My cooking triumphs
I have finally (after many many years) completely mastered Alfredo. My husband is very picky about having homemade food and he and many friends now say I make the best Alfredo they have ever had.
My cooking tragedies
No major tragedies to date....aaagghhh, I hope I didn't just jinx myself! :)

Rock Salt Encrusted Prime Rib
We made Prime Rib for New Year's Eve this year using your recipe....IMPRESSED! Very very good flavor, moist, and juicy. I didn't put the "cast" on the bottom of the meat, just the top and sides and it was superb! My husband is very picky about his prime rib and he thought it was delish! I cooked it to 130 and let it sit for 15 minutes. The temp rose to 140 and it was perfect! We used "Johnnys" Au Jus on the side (since the others said it was too salty to use its own - however, I saved it and dumped over a roast prior to cooking I made a few days later and it too was great) Yummmmmmm, making my mouth water just thinking out it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!

Wisconsin Cheese Soup I
Must add a great beer (I used Honey Weiss) or pale ale to be a true Wisconsin cheese soup!!!! (substitute some of the chicken broth for the beer) Also, because of a corn allergy in our family I used 1 medium mashed potato with potato water and flour to help thicken and left out the cornstarch. I also substituted the milk for half and half. Higher calorie count but richer and heavier flavor like a Cheesehead would want it! Go Packers!

Cottage Cheese Fluff
We have always used strawberry jell-o and a can of drained crushed pineapple in the cottage cheese and whipped topping. Just dump it all in a bowl and mix, no food processor needed. We call it "pink stuff" and all the cousins fight over it at gatherings! You can also add chopped pecans for texture but my kids rather I didn't. Enjoy!
