About this Cook
we'll i keep myself certainly busy cooking for my husband, he's on a heart diet,, low sodium,low fat. so i have to come up with concoctions that taste like something.. not easy! so i experiment daily.My husband is very limited with what he can eat because he takes coumadin, so i make allot of healthy low fat, low sodiom meals. I watch the ingredients very carefully. So far so good! Happy cooking everyone!
My favorite things to cook
pasta sauces, rice dishes,i like to load my oven up with different things at the same time. turkey meatballs, veggie casseroles,anthing that takes allot of ingredients i'm happy making.I do allot of baking, every other day. Lots of cookies and pound cakes, ginerbread, hermits,greek recipes for desserts. YUM
My favorite family cooking traditions
middle eastern, italian, greek.
My cooking triumphs
Surprizingly, I can remember something from 20 or 30 yrs. ago and how it tasted,so I kinda put together what I think was in it and it comes out pretty close, so I go from there, keep making it, til I get it right. Sounds like allot of work to some, but that's the challenge I like, LOL LOL
My cooking tragedies
Had a tragedy today making my favorite MMMMM brownies,I've always tweaked them adding so much more chocolate than called for making them so gooey good. today tho,,,I added nutella and cherry cordial hershey kisses instead of choc. chips,, I also added 1/2 cup more flour to accomodate, anyway after 40 min of baking the brownies were still liquid in the center, how bad is that,the sides are done and center is liquid! So i turned my oven to 300 degrees and just left them in another 15 min.. had too, diden't want to waste all those ingr. so low and behold as soon as I took them out I cut them and put them into tightly covered tupperware,, and that's it! yes,, they are edible,but they harden up real quick... So next time,I may tweak less!

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints
I made these exactly as recipe said, and I didn't care for them. The dough was kind of gummy, and bland. I used orange marmalade and strawberry preserves, as there is allot of dough.they were sweet, and that's due to the jelly. Something is missing.Will try another recipe next time.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies
I made these little "JEMS" today.They are by far the best butter cookie created! The recipe called for whipping for 10 min.'s,, I tried that for a couple of min.and decided to knead the dough instead. Perfect results. I didn't add cherries just made them plain... Next time and there will be many next times, I will add preserves in the middle. These are #1 YAYYYYYY!

Soft Sugar Cookies II
I didn't use the cardomom, I used vanilla ext. and orange ext.and colored them. I did have to add more milk, just to mix it, which took a long time, there's allot to work with here. But overall, they came out good. I'd make them again using more flavoring, they need allot. Nice soft sugar cookie. There soft only in tupperware containers, right out of the oven. After eating a few, you can get the taste, and a sugar cookie it is!
