About this Cook
I love cooking, but work full-time, so big meals are mostly a weekend production these days. Always looking for something quick and easy. I'm beginning to experiment more with slow-cooker recipes and love watching Food Network for new ideas.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles and other all-in-one entrees that I just need to pair with a salad or microwave-steamed veggie to make a complete meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love baking Christmas goodies every year and, since we're in Kentucky, cook traditional recipes for Derby Day every year as well.
My cooking triumphs
Have won blue ribbons in the county fair for my banana nut bread and coconut butter pecan cake.
My cooking tragedies
A friend and I decided to make chocolate-oatmeal no-bake cookies many years ago. We settled for off-brand peanut butter, and the cookies turned out so awful we had to pitch them all!

Teriyaki Sauce
This was much too salty. Cut soy sauce back by about half of what is called for. I took some of the soy and added 1 Tbsp. cornstarch, heated the rest of the ingredients and added the corn starch/soy mixture in when it came to a boil. It made the perfect thickness of sauce for my chicken. I will make this again, but I will cut back on the soy.

Tater Tot Bake
My husband, my 18-month-old son and I all loved this recipe. Will definitely be making it again. As some previous posters have suggested, I added a package of Lipton onion soup mix along to the cream of mushroom soup and milk. I also put a little garlic in with the beef/onion. If you're adding the onion soup mix, it does make it a little saltier. I might suggest using the reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup to help with that.
