About this Cook
I love to cook, read and share reciepes. However, my family has grown and so I don't cook as much. I would love to find a group of 5 or 6 that would like to have dinner partys maybe pot lucks or even having alternate dinner parties Updated 6/18/11 Now have a dinner group that shares the passion of cooking. It is fun and glad I am part of it. (Two Years Later) Found a cooking club we meet every month and enjoy a meal together.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
Great reciepe. I have sliced banana before yet I prefer mashed. I added cinnamon and cloves to spice it up. Another trick I like is to butter pan and sprinkle mixture of cinnomon and sugar. It really dresses it up. The first time I made it I tried sourcream next time I did not have enough sub with plain yogurt could not tell a difference. So next time trying just yougurt better for my waist. Can't go wrong. Another banana bread I like is Sourcream banana bread.

Healthier Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Love this reciepe. Been making it for years I was hoping to get a healthier version without loss of flavor. I don't think this did it. I sauté onions veggies, ham and ham bone first. Then add chicken stock or bullion with water. Make sure to cook the butter an flour in separate pan before adding that keeps the pasty flavor away. Bone really helps with flavor as the sauté does. Enjoy your comfort dish not a healthy version good try

Salmon Wellington
Another really nice presentation is to boil asparagus for two min then put in ice bath or cold water. Pace on top instead of spinach. Make sure to trim the stock before boil.
