About this Cook
I'm a mother of two young children. I've been happily married about 7 1/2 years.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to make my dad's chili and my mom's meatloaf. I also have enjoyed finding new recipes to try off of
My cooking triumphs
About 90% of my baking efforts turn out really good!
My cooking tragedies
When I was in college, I got some prebeaded fish and followed the directions but didn't know how to check that it was done. It was not nice to break in the still fairly raw fish.

Lighter Banana Muffins
These were good but not as great as I hoped. Perhaps some of my modifications didn't work. I added one more banana and 1/4 cup of applesauce. I also added a tsp of cinnamon and vanilla. I used splenda instead of sugar. I think that next time I will try to use 1/2 cup of spenda and 1/4 cup sugar.

Butternut Squash Casserole
This recipe was great. My husband said that if I had put it in a fancy dish, it would have been just like something at Ruth's Chris (a really fancy steak place). I didn't use the cookies in the topping, but used all the other ingredients the same. I used a combination of baking in the oven and the microwave to cook the squash until tender. It was a bit of work to get the rind off the squash, but it was worth it!. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting.

Egg Drop Soup I
This soup tasted good but looked just a little weird. I added some garlic powder and just a little soy sauce. I also didn't use the cornstarch but did add a little more egg. When I added the eggs it looked good and then it looked like scrambled eggs in chicken broth. When I have it in the restaurant the eggs look more whispy. I'll definitely be making it again but I might try to let the soup come down from a boil when I add the eggs.
