I find it strange how many people use canned mushrooms in recipes.  I don't know about you but IMHO, canned mushrooms don't even come close to fresh.  Not only is there absolutely no taste, but their texture is rubbery.  As well, does one really believe they are convenient when all you have… MORE

About this Cook
Being a single mother at a very young age along with pinching pennies, I learned how to cook pretty quick. I am now 50 years old and have been disabled for over 10 years, but my love of cooking is endless.
My favorite things to cook
One pot casseroles, crock pot dishes, homemade soups, cookies, Italian dishes, stir-fries, comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Meatloaf, roast chicken, beef and pork with all the trimmings, including yorkshire smothered in homemade gravy.
My cooking triumphs
It has taken many attempts but I've finally mastered pastry.
My cooking tragedies
Anything that requires the broiler as I have a tendency to walk away from the oven (now I set a timer to remind me to check the oven).

Greek Pasta Salad I
I used cucs, cherry tom, red onion, olives and feta (more along the lines of an authentic Greek salad, and also added sliced cooked chicken. Hubby and I both enjoyed it.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
Many reviews suggested adding a bit of balsamic vinegar. 1st time I made it I followed recipe & we liked it. I did add a wedge of squeezed lemon juice.

Chicken Quesadillas
I liked this quick and easy meal with a side dish of Mexican rice. The only ingredient change I made was instead of Fajita seasoning I went with Taco, as per other reviews. I chose to assemble mine differently (pie-shaped) - brushed one side of tortilla with EVOO and put in 10" skillet, sprinkled with a bit of cheese, topped with chicken veggie mixture, and then sprinkled with more cheese (cheese to act as glue to hold two tortillas together), an then topped with another tortilla brushed with EVOO. When bottom was golden, I flipped tortilla over to cook until golden. Cut into wedges and served with sour cream sprinkled with sliced green onions. I will make again.
