My Best Friend and Hubby!
About this Cook
I am a (still) new wife, been married for 4 years. Only started cooking about 3 years ago, and I learn something new nearly everyday! I don't claim to be a great cook, although my husband tells me he loves my cooking! (Course that doesn't mean much because no offense but guh - his mother's cooking is HORRID!) But still, it is nice to hear the compliments. I would like to learn more about making things from scratch or 'homemade' items. Learning some more about baking would be nice, or how to incorporate more fresh veggies and fruits instead of using canned or frozen. Anywho, that's why I am here!
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian, and anything with a red sauce and flavorful cheeses! I would LOVE to learn how to make my own spaghetti sauce and meatballs. I am also having a small affair with my crock pot! (Lol) It's like the miracle food-maker. Nearly everything you put into it comes out fabulous and juicy! I'd like to get the same results when using my oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Substituting applesauce instead of oil while baking is something my Grandmother taught me. "Cuts down on fat." she used to say. She's right, and I STILL cannot notice a difference!
My cooking triumphs
I made (from scratch!) Christmas cookies for all the members of my family last year. It was quite the baking feat! I also discovered that I have a knack for grilling that I never knew I had. I need to actually buy a grill of my own though to explore that more. And I invented a few skillet recipies when I was forced to cook without an oven or a stove for six months. I call them 'Hamburger Helper' without the box! It's like homemade. It's wonderful! I have a few recipes like that that I came up with on my own.
My cooking tragedies
I have been known for years to be the "forgetful cook" and have a bad habit of leaving the oven on for hours when I am finished with it. Been working on that though. Haha! Also, I am not afraid to admit that in a rush twice, I left the cardboard on a boxed pizza while I baked it and completely ruined it. And I once grabbed sugar instead of salt and screwed up an entire batch of soup. Dropped an oven mitt into the oven once too...good times!

Salisbury Steak
It had a bizarre taste! Ketchup as no place in this recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes
One of the best recipes I have found using this website! I never make anything but these pancakes since I found it over a year ago. The only difference is I never use the vinegar to make sour milk, nor use buttermilk. Always just used regular milk and added 1tsp of vanilla to the mix. Comes out fantastic! I have often added blueberries, strawberries, or apples to with or without a bit of cinnamon. They are unbeatable!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II
Nothing beats real Chinese in my opinion, but this wasn't bad! I added a cup of mixed veggies to the stir fry for more crispness and flavor. Would of been even better a side of egg rolls!
