Tomato Basil Salmon
About this Cook
I'm 29 years old and living with my husband and two cats in Independence. I've always enjoyed cooking, but since leaving home to go to college, I've found it difficult to get real creative when you're cooking for one or two! Now that we have a house and my own kitchen, I've been revamping some old favorites and trying out new ones.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything- I grew up on lots of different tastes, and my dad's big pot of spaghetti on his weekdays to cook. Now I'm cooking for myself and a guy who doesn't like plain tomato sauce on pasta or BBQ sauce on anything. My homegrown staples are out the window! I'm slowly working him up to some different things, though, we have a lot of fun in the kitchen, trying new dishes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Orange-Jello Carrot salad- it's a tradition for the born-in women and men in the family to like it, while the married-in guys and gals are disgusted! Also, we all have our Thanksgiving dishes we each always make, even when we are spread out around the country!
My cooking triumphs
When I try something new and it turns out great, with everyone who eats it giving rave reviews! I am probably my own harshest critic.
My cooking tragedies
Making anything weird, and having it turn out even weirder!! I also made cookies with a friend in middle school, added the amount of sugar as SALT! We duped our younger sis's into tasting it before we told them why it was sooo horrible!!

Fresh Cherry Cobbler
This is 5 star! I added sliced apples, cinnamon and vanilla as suggested by other reviews, increased all ingredients by one half to make up for the added apples, and left out all sugar (my hubs is trying to avoid sugar.) It turned out amazing, reminds me of "french toast" consistency, although it is definitely better with a tsp of brown sugar added to each serving. We decided to try adding some brown sugar over the top near the end of cooking time next time- WILL make this again!

Lentil Soup IV
Not a bad soup- I diced instead of grating the onion, and added a can of diced tomoatoes as I didn't have any fresh. I also added seasonings and a teaspoon of beef boullion. My husband suggests adding meat as well, although that would make it not a vegetarian's choice. Not too bad, but I wasn't impressed enough to make it again.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Awesome! I halve the recipe as I only make the one chicken, and I also push pats of butter under the skin before cooking. Turns out fantastic every time! Thank you Sue!!
