About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
Baking is not my forte, but I do make a cheesecake and pecan pie to die for. They each have been frequent requests of friends and family.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a teen I made bread with 2T of salt instead of 2T of sugar. Needless to say it wasn't my best effort.

Czech Stuffed Green Peppers
Prepared this tonight, DH and I both enjoyed it. I prefer the style of stuffed peppers where the meat is not cooked first. Typically I don't feel I have the right to review someone's recipe if I alter it, but since I thought the basic recipe was quite good, this time I will. I sauteed some finely chopped red/green pepper and garlic with the onions and used about 2 cups of cooked rice to 1lb of ground beef. I also used fresh herbs in the meat mixture (oregano,parsley,basil)I used the same fresh herbs plus garlic in the sauce, I also added 2T sugar and splash of red wine to the sauce which I simmered for about 30 minutes before pouring over the peppers. I also par-cooked my peppers by steaming for about 10 minutes before I stuffed them. I agree with others, this sauce is really good!

Flat Iron Steaks Marinated in Red Wine
This steak was tender and flavorful. I often use wine/olive oil marinades, throw in a few herbs an viola! I didn't measure the mustard, and am sure I used at least 1-1 1/2 tsp. I also used a couple of T. of olive oil and threw in a few shakes from the Spike bottle. I started with a frozen flat iron steak and marinated for 4 hours, grilled on a fairly hot BBQ grill for 5-6 minutes each side, sliced thinly. It was yummy!
