About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Dessert. I'm working on cake decorating, so any chance I get (birthday, potluck, party) I volunteer to make the cake.
My cooking triumphs
Oreo truffles, cream puffs, peanut butter avalanche
My cooking tragedies
I once made a Boston Cream Pie where the cream never set... it was more like a Boston SOUP Pie!

Cheesy Pork Chop Casserole
I too used hashbrowns since I was afraid potatoes wouldn't cook right. I had just enough frozen hashbrowns to layer the bottom of my pan, then laid four pork chops on top. I'm not a huge fan of onions so I only used about a half cup of the broth to dampen the hashbrowns. Then I mixed a can each of cream of cheddar and cream of potato soups and poured that over the chops. Baked at 350 for an hour, then bumped it to 400 for another 20 minutes because the chops weren't quite done. It came out so perfectly that I didn't need to put any more cheese on top. The bubbly sauce is quite good and definitely makes enough for another meal - perhaps over chicken or even plain boiled rice. Great recipe that lends itself to tweaking based on preference (and even better - it's a one-dish meal!) I'm giving it four starts only because it's a bit on the salty side between the pork and all the canned soup. Will definitely make again!!!

Little Nut Cups
I made this recipe to include as part of a monthly care package I send to troops stationed overseas. With Thanksgiving coming up, I figured they could use a little home tradition. These turned out very well and I really like the shortbread quality of the dough. One small warning - read the ingredient list carefully! After putting in wayyyyy too much cream cheese (seriously, never seen a 3oz package of cream cheese...) I had to adjust all the other measurements to match and wound up with 90 little nut cups!

Pork Chop Casserole II
I just made this for dinner tonight and have to say that I came back and added it to my recipe box! I normally make Caramel Apple Pork Chops whenever we have pork, but we were looking for something different this time. Since we were in a time crunch I had to make do with what I had on hand. My changes were: - Used a "family size" can of cream of chicken soup (26oz) and omitted the mayo. - Added a can of corn in place of the green beans - Only had 4 pork chops on hand - Used egg noodles instead of rotini but upped the amount to 2 cups The result was wonderfully bubbly, lightly crispy on top, and a little too salty for our tastes. I know pork is salty to begin with, but I think it was the cream of chicken that was the real culprit. Next time I'll cut the pork into even smaller pieces and increase the noodles to at least 3 cups. Adding some diced potatoes would add another dimension and combat the saltiness. I think this is a very versatile recipe that lets the user play with ingredients based on what's available. Thanks for sharing!
