About this Cook
Proud Army wife who loves to cook for my hubby and entertain guests.
My favorite things to cook
My husband is a picky eater, so I'm constantly modifying recipes. I go through phases, and rarely make the same thing twice. I love allrecipes because I make a lot of modifications based on reviews.
My cooking tragedies
My husband still teases me about the time I misread a recipe for honey wheat bread for my bread machine. I added 2 cups of honey instead of 2 Tbsp. Of course, the bread was extremely dense, sticky, and nothing like bread. We still laugh about that "honey loaf". :)

Quinoa Veggie Salad with Zesty Vinaigrette
I loved this! What a fantastic way to use quinoa. I cut the quinoa and dressing in half, but not the veggies. Excellent! I will definitely make this again. Thank you!!

Vegan Lemon Poppy Scones
We aren't vegan, but I ran out of eggs wanted to make a yummy breakfast that would incorporate some lemon curd I'd made earlier in the week. These were perfect! I made some major adjustments however. I substituted 1/2 c. butter and 1/4 cup applesauce for the margarine, omitted the water, and used real milk. I also only used 1 Tbsp. of poppyseeds, which was plenty. My only complaint is that these spread out like cookies when baking and looked more like poppyseed pancakes. But they tasted great drizzled with lemon curd! I'll make them again and refrigerate the dough so they won't spread.

Chuckwagon Stew
This was a really hearty stew that pleased my veggie-hating hubby. I tweaked it slightly by omitting one of the potatoes and adding 1/4 c. barley and 1 c. of beef broth. Delicious! I'll definitely make this one again.
