About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Always looking for great new recipes that are money savers and tasty. I like fresh and simple flavors.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I make a new soup recipe each first snowfall of every year. We have a good little collection of soups that have turned out great out of whatever we had in the house that day.

Shrimp Linguine Alfredo
Was great! I accidentally thickened it too much with flour, but was happy in the end when I had extra sauce above the doubled amount having added milk to thin it out. I also included grilled scallops on top and steamed asparagus. Heaven! Oh, and mushroom, but I don't know if I'll do that again as it was too many extras. Lots of fresh grated parm cheese made this one a success. I certainly didn't measure it. Just put in a whole lot of it. I didn't use the lemon. Oh, and all I had was rotini. Yum! Husband and I made it together.

Best Brownies
Made these last night, and loved them. Thanks for the tips to not over beat. I melted the butter in a pot and did all the mixing from there with a fork, using a 8x8 glass dish. From start to finish, I think it only took me 5-7 min before they were in the oven. I rinsed out the pot and used it on the burner venting the oven, burner turned off, to melt the butter for the icing. I followed the advice of others to use 1/2 cup icing sugar for the topping, which was good advice, and iced the brownies as soon as they were out of the oven. Easy to cut, and easy to left. I'm going to double the recipe next time and see if I can freeze some. If I try that a few times and they don't ever make it to the freezer, I'll have to just make the small portion for my health's sake.

Thank you for sharing this simple use of the whole plant. Always on the lookout for penny savers. It was delicious!
