About this Cook
I'm a Culinary School graduate, have raised 7 kids, and started cooking at age 7, inspired by my Dad. I believe food is the foundation of relationships and a wonderful way to express my creativity and love. All these years later, I'm still learning new things!
My favorite things to cook
I'm really big on vegetables and seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have one recipe that has consistently survived 5 generations now called Potato Filling. There would be anarchy if it were not on the table at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Knowing how to substitute ingredients and how flavor profiles can be created, as well as a good understanding of herbs and spices.
My cooking tragedies
Peanut Soup - AGH!

Meatloaf Cordon Bleu
I found this to be dry, too salty, and without flavor. Can't say I'd even try again with tweaking.

Hobo Beef and Vegetable Soup
A good meal on a cold winter's night. Next time I will either dice the potato small instead of medium, more probably add them (diced med) with the carrots as they didn't get quite tender enough for us. Also, I paid attention to the reviews and agreed there needed to be more flavor so I added Italian seasoning, crushed thyme, kosher salt, and cracked black pepper. I also felt I could have used more beef broth, but didn't have any so I used vegetable juice, knowing this was a great variance from the original recipe, but it worked well. One last tip - use a sachet (tied cheesecloth bag) for the bay leaves to make them easier to fish out at the end.
