About this Cook
I'm a brainy chick, getting close to thirty and languishing here in small town Ohio. I'm a bored housewife who would rather cook than clean. I like to try new things and to eat from my own imagination rather than eating from a box. Although I really prefer to have an expensive meal at a cozy restaurant, I can't do that everyday. Or every month. :)
My favorite things to cook
SOUPS! Fish and beef for protein. Fabulous vegetable side dishes. Chili. Food with an ethnic flair.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is primarily Irish with country cookin' background, so I guess that means I like fatty foods that are boiled. HA!
My cooking triumphs
Getting my kids to eat it. And of course impressing the husband!
My cooking tragedies
I'm pretty creative, so I have made some nasty stuff in my day. I try not to think about it.

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole
My only changes - substituted a bit of canned corn for the mushrooms, did not add carrots, and used water instead of broth. Also used leftover instant brown rice, and cheddar instead of swiss. I really liked this.... it just needed some TANG! So I served with sour cream and it was still missing something. Frank's Red Hot made it so much better. I would make this again.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry
Doubling the recipe, I used strips of beef, one napa (Chinese) cabbage, a small onion, one red and one green pepper, and handful of mushrooms, and omitted the black pepper. Instead I used a 1/4 teaspoon of curry, red pepper, and ginger, and a pinch of cayenne.It was excellent this way - I think it would've been very bland as submitted. Served with jasmine rice.

Barbecued Beef Cubes or Hamburger
This was edible, but not great. It is basically beef, with homemade BBQ sauce, on pasta. No one in my family enjoyed it, but there wasn't anything drastically wrong with it.
