About this Cook
Livin' the dream!
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti, Lasagna, Roast Beef w/Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Paige's Kick Butt Eggs, Sausage Stuffing, Potato Salad, Homemade Chowmein and Chocolate Cherry Cake are what I'm known for, among other dishes. (Not served at the same time of course!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook from my Grandmother, the old fashioned way, so although I try cook from scratch, I'm not above using some prepared items.
My cooking triumphs
I don't mean to brag, but I've had quite a few.
My cooking tragedies
Once, I made a Tuna Casserole for dinner. As we were eating, my son commented, "Mom, somethings different about this". We all agreed, it tasted different. Finally, it occurred to me. I FORGOT to add the Tuna!! We all thought that was too funny. I did add the Tuna then, so all ended well.

One-Skillet Italian Sausage Pasta
Pretty good. I added a diced sweet onion, green pepper and minced garlic to the sausage, along with some parsley flakes and dried basil to the wet ingredients later. I also sprinkled some shredded mozzarella cheese after I turned off the stove, covered the skillet and let it set for about 5 minutes to melt. All in all, I liked it.

Baked Spaghetti
I have made this for years except instead of cottage cheese, which makes it more like a lasagna, I use a 16 oz container of sour cream in that layer. Very tasty!

Country Goulash
For my family, goulash has to have diced tomatoes and celery, with a squirt of yellow mustard and a little sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes, in addition to the ingredients listed here. Cut back on the paprika too. 3 TBS is a bit much. 1 - 2 TBS is better. Use 2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes and 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce vs the 2 cans tomato sauce and 1 can tomato paste. The goulash will thicken once you add the macaroni. Add a TBS of yellow mustard to the hamburger while browning and a TBS of white sugar after you add the tomatoes.
