About this Cook
I love food. I love eating. Cooking is the means to that end.
My favorite things to cook
I like finding healthy, tasty dishes. I've been trying to eat less meat in order to bring down my (and my husband's) cholesterol. My love of cheese kind of throws a wrench in that plan.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I ate spaghetti with meat sauce (from a can) as my birthday dinner every year growing up. I like to think that my palette is a little more sophisticated now.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my husband to eat tofu and actually enjoy it. So far, this has only happened with one dish.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew
A solid four star recipe. It doesn't look appetizing, but tastes pretty good. Husband actually gave it two thumbs up. oh yeah! I made this exactly as stated, just sprinkled some cheese on top at the end.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
I followed this recipe almost exactly as written. The one change I made was to use water instead of beef broth in order to control the sodium content. For this reason, it needed a little extra salt at the end, but was otherwise quite toothsome. My husband was very pleased.

Barley and Mushrooms with Beans
I had really high hopes for this recipe, but was quite let down by the result. I followed it pretty much spot on, but added an extra cup of mushrooms. When it finished cooking, I thought it was very bland. To make it edible, at the last minute I added about 5 ounces of feta crumble, some fresh parsley and about a tablespoon of cracked red pepper. If I make this again, I think I'll add some goat cheese crumble and maybe some other fresh herbs.
