Haven't written in a while - its been a busy summer.  I'm trying to hold true to the purpose of my blog, which is to write about my dogs and their daily adventures in the great lives they lead.   Lately, I've really noticed that one of my dogs in particular really has a sweet… MORE

About this Cook
I often use the recipes I find as a starting point to make my own version of that particular dish. I love cooking, and find it relaxing and a way to bond with family and friends hanging out in the kitchen. Love having people over for dinner, last minute or well planned out. Nothing fancy, but GOOD!
My favorite things to cook
my famous mashed potatoes, pasta dishes, creative salads, anything that doesn't involve baking!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried Matzoh, Cottage Cheese pancakes (sounds gross, tastes unbelievable), pork tenderloin, chicken and dumplings.
My cooking triumphs
Not ruining my first $100 piece of beef tenderloin for a party of 8!!! Perfection - pan seared first, pan and all in the over to finish, perfect!
My cooking tragedies
The chocolate-chocolate Chip bundt cake that took me 2 hours to put together, followed direction to the tee, and still managed to burn and have it taste like sandpaper...:(

Asian Coleslaw
This was amazing. Huge hit with a big crowd - doubled the recipe and there was literally not a drop left. Shortcuts: Buy bagged cole slaw/cabbage mix for the green cabbage - then I just had to cut red cabbage. I also bought bagged carrots and added a bit more then the recipe calls for - gives it good color and texture. Used the fresh ground ginger & garlic from the tubes which was also a time saver. I added fresh ground pepper to the peanut butter dressing - gave it a bit more dimension. To finish it off I took a bunch of roasted peanuts and crushed them and tossed them in just before serving.

The Best Meatballs
I thought they were really good meatballs. I screwed up and lined the pan with foil instead of parchment and that was a huge mistake - all the extra delicious cheese I added to the recipe stuck to the bottom of the pan as di half of each meatball :( BUT despite my sticking disaster, the meatballs themselves were great.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
This was great. Basil is such a perfect flavor w/the parmesan. Perfect with flank steak, pork tenderloin, etc. Use as much basil as you want - I added a bit more. And I added lots more cheese than it called for which made it extra flavorful.
