About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! Cheesy Italian dishes, melt in your mouth meats (even the best jerky you'll ever taste!), the most delicious cookies you'll ever taste and quick "mom" meals - no one can transform mac&cheese into a gourmet meal like I can!

Broccoli Rice Casserole
For those complaining that this is bland, 1) IT'S BROCCOLI CHEESE CASSEROLE...not meant to be a symphony of flavors; 2) You see the ingredients. Anyone with half a brain can tell it's going to be bland and anyone with the other half would throw some garlic and/or spices in. There's no excuse for being surprised that it's bland. For those saying this is unsophisticated: IT'S BROCCOLI CHEESE CASSEROLE. Get off your high horse. Fact is that this is a perfect no-frills recipe that is perfect as-is or dolled up. You can sub wild rice or real cheddar (as I did), add spices, etc. It's a blank canvas; you bring the paint.

Indoor S'mores
After reading reviews claiming the mallow/chocolate mixture set too quickly, I made sure not to overheat it (as that was what people claimed the issue was). Almost as soon as I added the chocolate, the mixture began to set. It was nearly impossible to get it mixed thoroughly. I ended up with chocolate everywhere and most of it stuck to the bowl. I also found that there was a lot more chocolate mixture than grahams. I think maybe 6cups of grahams would be better - provided you can get the mixture through an extra 2 cups of cereal before it sets. Although it was a pain in the butt to make, it does taste delicious.
