Mommy Again
About this Cook
Midwestern white girl married into a Mexican family in Los Angeles. High school English teacher on maternity leave.
My favorite things to cook
I love my daily recipe emails becauase I love to try new things! But mostly I love the bluberry scone recipe I got here and any variety of pasta recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom trained my sister and I to cook early so that she could go back to work when we were in middle school. I've been making a number of her recipes, and often tweaking them to my husband's spicier tastes.
My cooking triumphs
Selling a variety of scones at our local coffee shop!
My cooking tragedies
With two in diapers and sleep deprivation, I've left things on the stove more than I care to admit. Good thing the fire alarm is a few rooms away.... LOL!

Ratatouille Soup
Yummy!! My 7-year old said it was the best soup he'd ever tasted! ;-) Seriously, though, it is really easy and really good. Use low-salt beef broth for a healthier option.

Chicken Florentine Casserole
This recipe came out WAY too rich for me and my family. It needs some kind of starch to tone it down, in my opinion.

Broccoli Cheese Soup VII
I sent this as my son's lunch to preschool and all three of his teachers want the recipe. Not bad, huh? OH, and I had to make two batches in one weekend because I ate practically the whole first batch by myself. Only, I NEVER use the Velveeta/processed cheese. I used Cheddar, and in the first batch I threw in a little Colby/Jack mix and in the second batch a slice or two of Muenster. Add whatever you like, but I recommend basing it on Cheddar. Also, for my little guys, I smash up the broccoli before adding it so they wont freak out with the chunks and balk at eating the most healthy part of this soup.
