About this Cook
Joined a dinner co-op in 2010 and plan to continue until dd graduates high school (2015). This is what brought me to Love the ability to adjust number of servings and build shopping lists. Due to digestive issues I don't do red meat ( sad ) so am always looking for hearty red-meat alternative dishes to keep my carnivorous husband and daughter happy!
My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking triumphs
Salad dressing -- who knew?!
My cooking tragedies
the broccoli casserole incident (definitely user error), and an unfortunate effort at pecan pie that scarred me for twenty years!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
Yup. Just right. Couldn't find my mom's s-doodle recipe so used this one for Super Bowl. Had to apologize to my mom for preferring this one!

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy
great and quick in a pinch -- added sour cream at the end for a more stroganoff flavor to top bleu-cheese stuffed burgers. as other cooks recommended would saute the onions first and make the roux -- for my first time out of the gate I tossed everything in together and got lumps and undercooked onions. I strained most out but would leave in if cooked through.

Garlic Butter Acorn Squash
Great alternative to a sweet dish. Did 3/4 tsp of garlic salt and only 1.5 tsp fresh garlic. Seemed like a lot of butter, but that did t stop me from enjoying it!
