About this Cook
Hello! My name is Corrine (but I go by Corrie) and I'm a recent transplant to the beautiful state of Arizona. I grew up in a small town in Eastern Washington, and relocated to Tucson to be with my fiance after my first marriage broke up. I enjoy the Southwest more than I thought I would and am learning to love foods I never did before - anything with avocado being a big one!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake...I made Mel's Magnificent Chocolate Chip Cookies yesterday and loved them. Cakes and quick breads are also high on my list. I cook for a guy that loves to eat, so pasta is high on the list, as are casseroles and anything that comes together quickly and tastes good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will always remember Thanksgiving and Christmas fondly - making pies and cookies with family and friends in my parents' kitchen...endlessly rolling out batter for fattigmann, frying them and dusting them with powdered sugar.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made homemade pudding and had it turn out perfectly, I was more pleased with myself than I thought possible! I also remember the first time I made a bundt cake (and had it turn out of the pan looking just like the picture)...I was more proud of myself than I thought was possible.
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally mistaking a cup of sugar for a cup of flour when I was making roux for potato soup.

Ultimate Roast Beef Blues Sandwich
I have made this many, many times and each time it's a little bit different. What I usually do is sear the roast beef until it's warm, then chiffonade the basil and throw it into my Magic Bullet with some lemon zest and the mayo. The lemon basil mayo is delicious on the sandwich! I also have learned that sliced blue cheese works really well on this as opposed to crumbled, which usually makes a mess and comes out all over the place. This is one of my very favorite sandwiches - and my husband's as well. Thanks for a great recipe!

Meatball Nirvana
OK...these are the best meatballs ever, bar none. I used half ground beef & half sweet Italian sausage and decided to take the advice of the reviewer who recommended ricotta cheese in place of the skim milk - definitely a good idea! My husband loves them and I have found the most perfect meatball recipe known to man - thanks, LTH!
