My cooking triumphs
I made a cake for my sister's-in-law rehearsal dinner--a blackberry spice cake--and when it was served my husband's grandmother asked where we'd bought the cake. They had to tell her three times that it was homemade before she believed them.

Divine Chicken with Green Beans
After reading the reviews I went ahead and heavily altered this recipe. But first, as a note to those of you using chicken breast: place the meat in a plastic baggy and pound the meat into a more uniform width. This will make cooking moist chicken far easier! I only had chicken tenders on hand. I salted and peppered and marinated them in Dijon mustard for a half hour while I got the onions, garlic, and beans ready. I cooked according to the recipe, browning the meat on both sides before throwing in the onion, and then roughly 2 minutes later, the garlic. I also poured in a healthy dollop of white wine (between 1/4 and 1/2 cup) and set it to simmer while I cooked up my noodles. I added the green beans, added a bit of garlic salt on top of them, and let the entire thing cook down for roughly 20 minutes. I added 3T of 2% milk at the end, removed everything but the sauce, and let it reduce while I finished the noodles. Cooked like this, the chicken came out moist, tender, and super flavorful. In the future, I may cook the green beans only on top of the chicken, as they absorbed the mustard flavor more readily than the meat. Next time I will squeegee more of the mustard off before tossing it into the skillet! I served it on top of Rotini pasta. If I do this again, I will serve it on white rice instead.

Grandma's Ground Beef Casserole
Found this as I had ground beef already cooking on the stove with a vague idea that I was going to cook SOME kind of casserole. I am always looking for new additions to our weekly routine and this one fit the bill nicely. I expected it to be a bigger hit with my small children, but my husband and I both enjoyed it immensely. I added canned peas and fresh chopped carrots as well as parsley, and I cooked most of the onion with the beef and only added a small amount to the cheese/sour cream mixture. I will make this again, but sparingly. This is firmly in the comfort food department and can't be very waistline friendly...which is why it tastes so good!

Banana Pudding III
This is a recurring dessert in our household. I couldn't believe that I hadn't reviewed it yet and so I do so now. I absolutely recommend making it with homemade whipped cream. Very rich and definitely serves dessert to our family of 4 (and a baby) for more than two days!
