About this Cook
My identity as a home cook is meant to compensate for my frigidity. Plus, I'm cheap. Just ask Kevin.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, easy side dishes, lean protein dishes, slow cooker dishes, and all things baked: brownies, chocolate chip cookie, pineapple upside down cake, apple pies, breads and pastries
My cooking triumphs
An ooey-gooey chocolate cake topped with chocolate ganache that I still dream about.
My cooking tragedies
I didn't realize my fridge was broken and served spoiled filets topped with spoiled goat cheese to my dinner guests.

Eggplant Parmesan II
Delicious!!! I took the advice of another reviewer and sweat the eggplant and baked at 450F. But other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, and it was great.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Such a great recipe! I took the advice of some other reviewers and sauteed onion, carrot and celery in the pot before adding the broth, water and chicken. I also used whole milk in place of cream, and cut back on the butter a bit. It was delicious!!

Penne Rosa with Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Great tasting and easy dinner. I use regular spaghetti sauce and add cream, rather than use jarred Alfredo. Also I use chicken cutlets to make them nice and thin. Definitely a keeper!
