About this Cook
I'm a mom. I work. I'm tired often. But my husband and I cherish family meals, so I work hard to have dinner on the table nightly. I love quick & easy recipes that taste good, are family-friendly and on the healthier side, but also need some fancier fare, appetizers and main dishes, for when we entertain.
My favorite things to cook
We love Italian and your good ol' American meat-n-potatoes, but because of watching our wastelines, I'm always working toward making these things in the healthiest fashion possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love making my mom's turkey with dressing and baked beans because I learned from her and she learned from her mom and grandma learned from her's, etc. It's a great connection to my heritage.
My cooking triumphs
My husband would rather eat my dinner leftovers for lunch than eat out with his co-workers.
My cooking tragedies
We learn by our mistakes, right? I've definitely had my share of learning. :)

Sarah's Spicy Turkey Chili
This a very tasty soup. I did take into account what other reviewers said and dialed back the spicy spices (chili powder and cayenne) by about half, then added a bit more to taste and desired "hotness." Entire family enjoyed this. Used regular beer and pure lime juice since I didn't have the other as called for in the recipe. Used one soup pot in preparing it. Simply heated the oil, browned the garlic and softened the onions, then browned the turkey and added the other ingredients. Let it cook for approximately 30 minutes on stove top. Turned out yummy with minimal clean up.

Turkey Tetrazzini II
This is a great basic recipe. Very flexible. It's a base or core recipe that can be switched up many ways, as is evident from what other reviewers have done with it. I love recipes like that! Thank you for posting it ANNOFBEV. I wavered between giving it 4 or 5 stars (I rarely give 5 stars). It's yummy as is, but I prefer it with garlic, celery salt, onion powder, salt and pepper added (to the butter, flour, milk mixture). Topping it off with crushed corn flakes, bread crumbs or potato chips and butter is nice. I've also used French's Fried Onions on top (do not mix with butter, they're fatty enough & brown up well on their own), which is very good. This has become a regular meal in our household - everyone loves it. Thanks again ANNOFBEV!
