About this Cook
I don't cook from scratch a lot, but when I do, I like to get creative, and somehow I always know what spices to put with what and which wines to use with which dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods and desserts...anything with chocolate!
My cooking triumphs
My Thanksgiving Pie (recipe in my profile). One day I was trying to use up what we had in the house and I came up with this amazing savory pie. Comfort food personified!
My cooking tragedies
I have the hardest times with roasts. I hardly ever get them to come out tender and almost always have to "save" them by shredding the meat and creating puff pastry pockets.

Berdean's Cube Steak
I didn't have beef bouillon, so I took a little beef gravy and mixed it with water, then covered the steaks with that. I was a little nervous that cooking the steaks for 2 hours would end in disaster, but I kept the faith and these are the best cube steaks I've ever made. Will definitely be adding this to our rotation!

Easy After Work Chicken Francaise
I have been looking for a good lemon chicken recipe that doesn't use white wine (my hubby can't stand wine in anything, unfortunately) and this one is perfect! The only changes I made were that I left out the salt & pepper and didn't serve w/ parsley or lemon wedges. Next time I will drain off the oil from the pan before melting the butter. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing!

Oven-Fried Pork Chops
Finally!!! Pork chops the whole family loved! I made this tonight, with the following changes: I skipped the pepper (which I will add next time) and I subbed Italian flavored bread crumbs for the stuffing mix. I'll add the pepper and some salt to that next time. I also melted my butter in the baking dish in the pre-heated oven while I dredged the chops. Using homemade butter helps keep the butter from burning. These were great and I will definitely add them to our rotation, which is saying a lot because I usually HATE pork chops!
