About this Cook
Married to a man that will eat most anything, which is great because I am always trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Meals for a large number of people (I'm used to cooking for two). And of course, dessert!
My cooking triumphs
I've had people argue over who gets the last piece of a cake I made. That was satisfying.
My cooking tragedies
I think the worst one of all was cooking fish that was salted. I didn't realize it was, so I didn't soak it in water beforehand. We considered using it to melt ice on the driveway (it was winter), but it went straight to the trash instead.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake
A coworker just made this the other day, and now it is saved into my recipe box. The cake was done on the edges but not quite in the center, but it was still amazingly delicious and I went back for seconds!

THE Pasta Salad
Skipped the onions and hot pepper sauce, added about 1/4 cup milk, and it came out fairly well. Not your typical store-bought pasta sauce flavor, but definitely worth making a second time with a few tweaks.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
This gets a 5 for taste and a 3 for preparation directions. And hour to cook, really? I had mine ready in 30 minutes from start to finish, only boiling/simmering the carrots and pasta. I also used one tomato, 4 would have been overkill. Skipped the wine and zucchini to appeal to my daughter. And lastly, I used mostly reduced sodium broth with a bit of regular, I think next time I will use completely reduced sodium.
