About this Cook
I cook because I love food. I've come to have a healthy relationship with food. I had weight loss surgery on 3/12/01, and have lost 175 lbs. I can now enjoy food, and enjoy cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking "fancy" recipes. I don't like cooking "thrown" together things.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin
I loved it. I would eat cardboard soaked in vinegar, so I might be a bit biased, but one of my dinner guests went back for 3rds even. Another left most of his on his plate. I didn't want to embarrass him by asking why. My husband gave it an 8 out of 10. My roast was 3.5 lbs so I adjusted the ingredients. It cooked a little over an hour and a half. I don't know exactly how long because I use a thermometer. I basted during the cooktime. It didn't look like the photo provided, but it looked pretty good. Very very tender.

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese
This was a delicious mac and cheese. I used shells. I didn't add the ham, and I used the cheeses I had on hand, cheddar, colby and montery jack, and muenster and it turned out great. I think it's really in the cheese sauce. I thought a quart of milk was a bit much and I was half a cup short, but it turned out great. I cooked it for 30 minutes and it was perfect for us.

My Sister's Favorite Potato Salad...Ever
Very very tangy. I omitted celery salt because I didn't have any. I did add just a tad more mustard and 4 eggs. I'm taking it to a church function tomorrow, and won't know until then how it will be received, but I like it. It was easy to prepare. I love vinegar and everything vinegar, so it was perfect for me.
