About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, which is rather unfortunate because it usually involves something fattening. I like to try different breads and desserts. I usually find things in order to use something up. I have been changing recipes around to be as healthy as possible, by using whole wheat flower or yogurt or milk rather than oil. I cut where I can and play around a lot to find out what tastes good. I use a lot of garlic. I think everything tastes better with garlic. Try chopping up a couple of cloves, sauteing with a little olive oil, and steaming your fresh vegatables with it. Add a little salt and oregano, and you have some yummy, healthy veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We actually don't have many particular cooking traditions, and I have really come into my own style as an adult. I do love my mother's meatloaf though and flat out refuse to try another recipe. I make it leaner by using a lean ground beef (sirloin or better).
My cooking triumphs
I have chocolate velvet cake recipe that I just adore. It is so versatile and delicious. I have used it with several types of frosting and it comes out unique and delicious every time.
My cooking tragedies
This past St. Patrick's day I attempted to make a corned beef and cabbage with Guiness in the crock pot. I followed the recipe instead of my instincts and the veggies were still hard when it was time to eat. The meat also lacked flavor. It was just bad, and I was trying to do something special for my parents.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
We really enjoyed this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly except I used frozen tortellini and threw in a bit of salt to suit my taste. I mixed red and yellow tomatoes because that is what I had from my garden.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
I have made this several times as written. We love it. I think it could easily be used on other kinds of meat or fish. The only difference is that I do not cook the thighs so long. They only need about 45 minutes.

Chicken Pesto Pizza
Made this with the addition of baby bella mushrooms, and using my own dough recipe. I cut the artichoke hearts into quarters. Cooked some Market Day chicken in the skillet with salt and pepper, then sliced it for the pizza. Delicious..
