About this Cook
Marriage and childbirth have thrust me into the role of purveyor of grub. Hence my title, the reluctant chef. I grew up in a big family and learned only the basics of cooking. Joined the site to expand my horizons....and keep my family from eating mac&cheese every night.
My favorite things to cook
I would rather not cook. But I make a truly fabulous apple pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Casseroles, Italian dishes.....
My cooking triumphs
Lol. See above.
My cooking tragedies
Fortunately, my husband will eat nearly anything. So, even that which I consider a dire tragedy is still dinner to him.

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup
This was a very good recipe, hearty and filling. My only complaint is that the flavor was too understated for my taste. I feel like it needed some red pepper or something. Anyway, will definitely make it again.

Quiche Lorraine II
Great flavor! Texture was good, but still a little soft for my taste. Maybe less milk? Like others, I baked it for a full hour then cranked it up to 425 for 10 minutes to brown it a bit.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
This was pretty good, but still needed....something. I put the carrots, celery, onions and garlic in the food processor then sauteed the lot in some butter. Threw the cubed chicken (raw) into the pot to cook in the stock and added a little garlic powder, sage and thyme to the spice list. We used alphabet pasta to make it more fun. Thanks for the recipe.
