About this Cook
My name is Susanne, I am a married stay at home mom at the moment. I have a baby girl(2&1/2 yrs)and a baby boy(1&1/2 yrs). I come from a family that loves to cook so naturally I have picked it up. I actually feel cooking is relaxing as crazy as it sounds.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything and everything. I will try anything that looks or sounds good. I especially love desserts. I could eat them as meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are no constants. My parents always recreated dishes everytime they made them. I think I have inherited the experimentation trait.
My cooking triumphs
When someone asks me for the recipe, thats a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
My greatest tragdies would be when I forget I added salt and I add some more. In the end it tastes like we just put the salt shaker straight to our mouths.

Carrot Rice
This is a great recipe! I didn't add the peanuts because I was hosting a dinner and feared the possibility of someone having an allergy. I used it as a bed for baked salmon. I did also substitute a tiny bit of butter and a little olive oil in place of the margarine. Will definitely use this again, thank you.

Spinach, Caramelized Onion, and Muenster Au Gratin Potatoes
I made this last night. I have to admit right off the bat that I did not have heavy cream but I did have half & half. So I used that mixed with 2% milk. I also had a bag of shredded Muenster & Gruyere cheese mixed from Trader Joe's. For the last topping of cheese, I shredded a block of Muenster cheese. This was creamy and rich but I felt it still lacked something. One onion caramelized is definitely not enough for a 9x13 dish. I caramelized 4 shallots in addition to the one onion and it still could have used more! I see other reviewers added more salt or some nutmeg, it definitely could use some of those things at least. I will definitely try this again with some modifications. Great idea though!

Sesame Udon Noodles
My family loved this recipe. The only substitute I made was a little peanut butter in place of the peanut oil (which I didn't have)Since others complained this was a little oily, I'm glad I used the peanut butter, it was the perfect consistency and held to the noodles beautifully. I only added about 1-1/2 TBLSP. I used a 9oz pkg of udon noodles and there was way too much sauce for the amount of noodles so I kept some aside and used it as a dipping sauce for some beef and chicken satay that I also made. Great meal!
