About this Cook
I'm learning to cook for one now and am determined not to eat breakfast cereal for dinner! So many wonderful recipes on Allrecipes.com that this shouldn't be a problem.
My favorite things to cook
LOVE candy/cookies/bars or any sweets, but have to restrain myself from taste testing and end up giving most away rather than eat them here at home.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean pot roast!
My cooking tragedies
My tragedies are usually from forgetting to remove something from the oven on time. I get distracted or start chatting and space out the oven timer when it goes off. I've had things turn out "okay", but not the best. I made a crab/shrimp filling for phyllo shells as an appetizer for Thanksgiving and found it tasted MUCH better cold on crackers than it did baked in the shells (tasted "off" when baked). Live and learn!

Strawberry Freezer Jam
I'm afraid this had too much sugar for my tastes. I'm a sugar girl, so I can't believe I'm saying that. I really did like the consistency though. For my second attempt, I went with 2 cups mashed strawberries, 2/3 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp Ball brand Realfruit Instant Pectin for each 2 pints (2 - 8oz containers) of freezer jam. I will say that the consistency was more like apple butter, but I'm thinking this will be wonderful in the middle of a Minnesota winter. No cooking or boiling needed. I added 1/3 cup more berries.

Microwave Corn on the Cob
The microwave concept is great if you're making one ear of corn for yourself. If I was serving more people, I'd still boil it with a pinch of sugar added - the way my mother and grandmother always did. 5 minutes is WAY too long for my microwave and wrapping it in a damp paper towel only made the corn mushy. I found that two minutes without the paper towel gave me a crisp ear of corn.

Vegetarian Cottage Cheese Patties
My step-son who's a vegetarian was visiting, so we decided to make the cottage cheese patties together. I had my doubts, but they were actually VERY good!! I'd coat them in seasoned bread crumbs to hold their shape. The entire family enjoyed them and they were a welcome break from red meat. Thank you!
