Hey Moose!
About this Cook
I work for that really big organization that delivers letters. I don't have time to cook from scratch like I used to, so I find myself looking for short cuts and "quick and easy" recipes. I also am adjusting to cooking for two and converting recipes to what I need.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes and Cookies....I love to make sweets...Especially CHOCOLATE...anything chocolate...did I say CHOCOLATE???? Nothing like it!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being of French Canadian descent, I learned to cook hearty meals. My Grandparents used to cook in the logging camps of the Adirondacks, and I have been gifted many of their treasured recipes. In later years, my Memere ran a hotel and cooked for the many travelers and family members that crossed her path. My Mother began cooking at an early age and grew to be the amazing cook she is today. My siblings and I each have our favorite meal or dessert that she prepares for us when we visit. No matter how old we get, it makes us feel like children inside.....
My cooking triumphs
There have been many and will continue to be many...I hope!
My cooking tragedies
Again, there have been many, and I'm sure there will be more to come in the future....unfortunately.

Hamburger Gravy
As many others have stated, this needs some seasoning! I sauteed onions and garlic in some butter with salt and pepper, I added some white wine (Have to share while I'm cooking dinner!). I then added an onion soup mix to the burg. At the end I added some of Tupperware garlic herb seasoning that I had. HOLY COW! Husband gives it a 8.5 out of 10 (Porterhouse being a 10)

Slider-Style Mini Burgers
Holy COW! These were a HUGE HIT! I didn't have onion soup mix, so I used some of the Tupperware Simply garlic seasoning, which was AWESOME!. I used reduced fat mayo and reduced fat cheese, I also sauteed a small onion in with the burger. Will be making these again for sure!

Sweet Fried Summer Squash
At first I didn't like this, but as the first batch turned to the third, then fifth, then eigth...We liked it. I found that I needed to keep adding shortening. I also cut the slices thinner and added cooking time to make it more crispy. My husband loved this and so did I. He preferred them dark brown, they were like potato chips! I will say, when they sit, they get soggy so make them and eat them. They really are great. I will make again! Thanks for the recipe!
