About this Cook
I'm an American that finally took that leap and left the US for life in Europe. Settled in Lausanne, Switzerland where I've been now for the past four years. Slowly made Swiss friends with the Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Now I'm treated like I've lived here my entire life!
My favorite things to cook
Just take a look at my waist...desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not sure what should be put here but for me, Thanksgiving and Christmas meals are my entire family's cooking traditions. By the time we finish preparing for these holidays, the table is groaning!
My cooking triumphs
I guess they would be the meals prepared for the holidays mentioned above.
My cooking tragedies
We really don't want to go there. It was bad. Between the smell and the smoke the house had to be evacuated.

Chicken Noodle Soup
This is a simple and good recipe. I don't use as many bouillon cubes as the recipe calls for but it turns out fine anyway. Of course we all add or subtract according to our tastes. For me it's more chicken (I use only breast meat) and no celery. (Can't stand celery unless it's filled with peanut butter!) Made this tonight and took some over to a 95 year old Swiss neighbor. She hardly eats enough to keep her alive. Tonight she asked me if I had some extra she could have. I gladly ran home and got more for her. She ate two and a half bowls in one sitting! Thanks for this one!

We enjoy this recipe at least once a week just after I've made spaghetti sauce which I use in place of the pizza sauce. Usually use store bought dough just to cut the time. For the people that complain it makes too much "crust" have you done what the poster suggested and cut it in half? No, I didn't think so. I mean, why do something intelligent when you can complain instead? When I make the dough any left over gets made into garlic bread sticks.

It's great! Better than what my mom made...and that's saying something. I sort of laughed at the comment posted by Momof2 stating they thought it was too sweet and they don't like the green pepper. Ever thought of just cutting down on the suger and skip the pepper?
