Cream of Mushroom Soup 1
About this Cook
I am an accountant who has a passion for food. I cook to de-stress and show my family and friends how much I love them. I became a vegetarian five years ago. As a food lover, becoming a vegetarian was a challenge. I think my cooking skills have vastly improved because of it though. I have tasted and cooked exoctic meals and I have had to learn to make vegetarian meals that please non-vegetarians.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook warm, rich flavors. I am always on the lookout for recipes that combine strong and unique flavors and textures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am no longer able to enjoy most of my family's traditional recipes since I became a vegetarian. However, I am working hard to create vegetarian recipes that will become new traditions for my family.
My cooking triumphs
Tackling recipes from exotic cultures!
My cooking tragedies
Eggs! I will argue that plain eggs are one of the most difficult things to cook. I can make them how I like them, but find it trying to make them well any other way.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
Very tasty (and very naughty). I followed the recipe recommendations of member "Reg927." The alfredo had good texture and great flavor.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
This recipe is awesome! The whole family loved it and it is really easy. I used Dos Equis Amber for beer and Bill Echols Taco Seasoning for spice. I also added half a head of cabbage at the start of cooking.

Cream of Mushroom Soup II
Easy recipe, very tasty considering how simple the recipe is. I added some sherri, which deepened the flavor.
