About this Cook
Perfectionist learning that I can't be good at everything, but I can be better than I was yesterday.
My favorite things to cook
Pie, hands down. And I am intrigued by dough and sauce.
My cooking tragedies
I once substituted a can of creamed corn for a can of whole kernel corn in a casserole recipe. That was the only dish I've ever thrown away. Lesson learned: if the right ingredient is cheaper than takeout, buy it!

Jamie's Minestrone
My husband claims to hate half the vegetables in this soup, but cleaned his bowl with a smile on his face. I managed to burn my garlic right off the bat so threw that out and started over, subbing 3/4 tsp garlic powder when I poured in the liquids. Used dried herbs (on hand). "Pepper to taste" was 1/4 tsp (perfect). I did not add salt and it didn't need it, even though I used homemade chicken stock with very little salt. I would probably add if I didn't use canned green beans. Very, very good!

Dill-Glazed Carrots
This was really more of a 2-star for me, but I give it a compensating third star because I don't love dill. I used 2 tsp dried dill instead of 2 Tbsp fresh, and the carrots were almost furry. My goodness, what a lot of dill!! Surprisingly not overpowering, but still underwhelming.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole
I'm about to be that person who gives a less than glowing review for a recipe she did not follow exactly. Apologies in advance; it wasn't bad, but it was very bland. I halved the recipe, omitted the cream of mushroom (half recipe only needed a half can of each, so I used a whole can of cream of chicken) used shredded cooked chicken I already had, mixed the soup, salsa & onions with the cooked rice before layering, subbed pepper jack for the monterey jack, and only baked for 20 minutes (everything was already cooked and it was plenty hot by then). Next time, would definitely add chili powder and cumin, and maybe a can of diced green chiles and some olives. I also thought there was too much cheese (and I LOVE cheese). I think I'd cut the cheese in half and only use it on top. Husband and I ate it dip-style with tortilla chips, which he liked. I usually have all of these ingredients on hand, so with a little doctoring, I can see us trying this again.
