My little garden
About this Cook
Cooking is one of many arts I enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in a frying pan!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and I cooking together in the kitchen. Her freshly baked bread with real butter whipped with honey.
My cooking triumphs
? Every successful dish is a triumph! I enjoy cooking with unlikely ingredients together and naming it "...Suprise", or "Come get your slop". It may not be pretty, but it is usually quite tasty!
My cooking tragedies
My first grilled cheese I put the cheese on the frying pan and began to panic as it stuck and burned. I still like fried cheese though :)

Basil Cream Sauce
Amazing! Before the last step, (heat & thicken) I sauteed shallots and baby portabellas in a tbsp. of butter and poured the cream sauce into the pan to heat & mix. I also used only a tbsp. of olive oil & half and half.

Summer Squash Puffs
I knew what I was getting into when the ingredient list begins with 1 quart of oil. But these little puffs did tend to soak a lot of it up (even with very hot oil), thereby making it a far cry from a healthy snack. That said, I am sure that is not the intent of this recipe. After frying the first batch using the recommended tablespoon, I switched to teaspoons. The recipe yields way too many for a family of two, and I thought smaller ones would make a nicer treat to take to work and share with others. Next time, I would probably up the dry ingredients a bit, as the batter was more like pancake than puff. I gave four stars because they are a guilty but scrumptious pleasure.

Baked Omelet Roll
This is easy & an impressive breakfast treat. I saw no reason to add the flour, omitted it, and had no problem. I also add onions, mushrooms and peppers, sauteed before adding & rolling.
