About this Cook
Over the last year or so I've become more interested in cooking light, healthy and interesting meals. I get on quite often to get great ideas! Trouble is my husband is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy who doesn't like the idea of "messing up the meat" by using citrus, wine, capers, fruit, etc. Needless to say I can't get as creative as I'd like!
My favorite things to cook
One of the favorite things I like to do is eat something wonderful and go home and recreate it! Actually I guess the one thing I cook a lot of is soup, my husband is a soup guy and loves my homemade soups. I love to make salsa and great salads when all the ingredients are at there freshest. There's nothing as good as a really ripe tomato picked fresh from your yard!
My cooking tragedies
Oh there have been a ton!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence
I marinaded a top round flank for about 10 hours and it was wonderful. The only change I made was to use only 1 tbsp of the dried basil as I was afraid hubby would taste too much of it. Wonderful marinade, next time I'll opt for overnight or longer. Thanks for a great one Kookie!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce
I just made this sauce and actually can't wait to try it once it's sat overnight. I too doubled the garlic, used regular flour and added approx 1 tsp of sugar to this recipe. Love how easy it is to make! Hubby loves it! Thanks for posting!

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce
I made this last night for dinnner, husband and I both loved it! I did add a couple of extras, (personal preference) I sauteed 2 large chopped garlic cloves with the onion, alittle extra dijon, slightly less marsala and ground black pepper. Excellent sauce, Thanks Shar!!
