About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
My key lime pie and sweet potato casserole are requested at get-togethers. Hubby loves my cheesy tomato pork chops.
My cooking tragedies
Carrot soup. My husband loves carrots so as a newlywed, I thought I'd surprise him with a delicious and nutritious carrot soup recipe. I made a huge pot of it and was proud of myself for trying something new. My husband tasted it, and being the gentleman that he is, didn't say anything other than ask the question, "Hmmm... is there anything in here besides carrots?" I tasted it and nearly spewed it out. It was terrible! The enormous pot of soup was thrown into the garbage. Even the dogs wouldn't eat it! No more carrot soup, but it makes for a good story as my "cooking tragedy."

Chicken Tortilla Soup V
This soup is wonderful! I doubled the portion and used my 6-quart Crock Pot to make enough for company. It was such a big hit that between only four of us, we ate so much that there is hardly enough left for leftovers! The changes I made were: I boiled 4 chicken breasts just long enough to turn them white on the outside, shredded them and placed them in the Crock Pot. I used 70 ozs (2 boxes & 1 can) of chicken broth. I added 1 can of black beans, rinsed & drained. I used only 1 1/2 TBSP lemon juice and added 1/2 lime juice. I used 1/2 medium an 1/2 mild salsa so that it would be mild enoug for everyone to enjoy. I added 1 tsp of fresh chopped cilantro. I cooked on high for 3 hours and reduced to low for about 2 hours until company arrived. I made the following available for people to add as they preferred: Mission tortilla strips, jalapenos, shredded Mexican cheese, sour cream and guacamole. It was delicious!

Pesto Chicken Florentine
Absolutely delicious! I could eat this twice per week, and hubby likes it, too. Fresh or canned diced tomatoes on top brings out a "zing" to the dish. Thank you for this recipe!
