About this Cook
Imaginative, dyslexic, easily distracted carnivore. Sings in the kitchen...and elsewhere.
My favorite things to cook
Steak. Eggs. Pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
A *quiet* Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone was too busy eating to talk!
My cooking tragedies
Crockpot roast chicken that cooked too long. It smelled great, starting at the sidewalk. But it was completely inedible. And let's not forget the Lemon Lead Cake I took to a church supper. Plastic forks were breaking all over the room...I tested the baking powder when I got home - it was old and had completely lost its fizzle.

Easy Potato Sausage Soup
Pretty good, but I prefer my Mom's recipe. I halved the quantities because my slow-cooker is a small one. I skipped the green pepper since I had none. I added a stalk of celery and used fresh carrots instead of frozen. I also used the smoked polish sausages. My potatoes may have been old - after 3 hours slow-cooking on high, they lost 90% of their structural integrity, disintegrating into the surrounding soup, so I didn't bother adding potato flakes. At the end, it seemed very bland, so I added half-n-half instead of milk, a teaspoon of dried parsley and a few more grinds of black pepper. It thickened up nicely, I may have used more potatoes than just half. I stirred in two small handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese and served it with a handful of mini-pretzels scattered on top and the little bit of crunch was nice. My son went back for seconds of the pretzels only. Oh well.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos
Very good and quick lunch dish. I am gluten-free so instead of 2 flour tortillas, I made 6 corn tortilla foldovers. I had no cilantro but used the rest of the ingredients as listed, with estimated amounts, no time to measure. It was delicious and my son really wanted more, so I guess I'll be doubling the recipe next time I make it.

Who Hash
Ok, really quick and easy. Needs lots of freshly ground pepper and it's even better with ketchup. My son was surprisingly appreciative, he-who-loves-hot-hot-chili. Definitely comfort food. I'll probably try it with the over-easy eggs next time.
