Without going into all of the details, let me just say that last week was one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride and a week I hope to never see a repeat of. I’ll skip the first part of the week and fast forward to Thursday. Thursdays have potential to be late nights for me at work and… MORE

About this Cook
Hello, my name is Nicole. I am 41 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 17 years now. I haven't always enjoyed cooking but Allrecipes has changed that for me over the years. I now consider myself a foodie and am always up for a good challenge in the kitchen. There isn't anything I won't try at least once. Summer is my favorite time of the year and when I am not recipe hunting, menu planning, etc. I spend my time fishing gardening, and babysitting my chickens.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Mexican, Italian, Asian, and grilling
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any so I have started my own. Allrecipes has taught me to "think outside the box". I love trying new and unusual things that I would have never dared or even thought of before discovering this place.
My cooking triumphs
When I got married, I honestly had 0% experience in the kitchen. My mom was the kind that wanted the whole kitchen to herself so that nobody was in her way and I was only allowed in there to grab the plates, utensils, etc. to set the table. I really never thought about what I was going to cook until we got back from our honeymoon and then I was like, "uh oh!". Amazingly enough it all came pretty natural and I am happy to say that I have never ruined a meal forcing us to order take-out.
My cooking tragedies
Me and double battering things do not get along!

Jan's Loaded Pizza Fries
5 stars all the way! I almost felt guilty for something so tasty being so ridiculously easy. Notice I said "almost". The possibilities are endless here and this is such a great way to put something hot on the table when you have a whole bunch of other things going on. It doesn't get any easier than this and who doesn't like pizza? AND FRIES? Thank you WFDM for sharing.

Chorizo Chili
Just as the recipe submitter did, I too had to resort to what was in my pantry. That being said, I did not have a can of prepared chili so I used a can of chili beans, the whole can of tomato sauce, and extra chili powder in its place. I also used venison in place of the ground beef. Chorizo is so greasy that I recommend draining the meat mixture before adding it to the slow cooker. This recipe could very easily be done on the stove top as well if you needed dinner on the table in less than an hour.

Jumbo Shells with Asparagus, Prosciutto, Ricotta Cheese and Three Cheese Sauce
I used bacon in place of the prosciutto and fresh asparagus in place of the frozen and those were the only changes made. I cooked my bacon first until it was nice and crispy, drained it on paper towels until cool, and then crumbled it into the ricotta mixture. It stayed nice and crisp during the baking step and was still crispy in the leftovers the next day. I stuffed my shells pretty full and there was enough for 18 shells. These turned out really good but there is SO much cheese in the filling that I think a marinara sauce would do this recipe more justice.
