About this Cook
I love to cook, love to learn about and taste the foods of different cultures. Love trying foods that "stand out" as unusual, like kangaroo meat, fried anything from state fairs and love to hunt down the locals favorites when we travel.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian (husband is Italian), Copy-Cat recipes, Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, Christmas cookies, Fish dishes on Christmas eve, Christmas day dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Rex and I cooked all the food for our own wedding.
My cooking tragedies
Using Almond Breeze to replace milk since we are lactose intolerant isn't always easy.

Oregon Salmon Patties
It is far too wet to form a patty, much less put into crumbs to coat. I didn't have time to refrigerate it as others have mentioned. I refrigerate my meatloaf overnight because it makes it much better so refrigerating this for hours or overnight makes sense too. I ended up adding another whole package of crackers crumbs which took away from the salmon taste. Next time I make these, I will definitely try the overnight method first and adding more cracker crumbs as needed. If that doesn't work I will try leaving out the liquid and slowly adding some in as needed. I will definitely try these again and use panko for the outside for extra crispiness.

Jalapeno Popper Mushrooms
My daughter requested stuffed mushrooms for Thanksgiving. I made another (the most popular) recipe and this one. I made both exactly as written. My daughter and I really loved this one, my husband liked the other one. He said this was too spicy but I thought the other one was too spicy. I'll definitely make these again! I think next time I will (at least) double the recipe though so that I can use a full package of cream cheese.

Southern Cabbage for the Pressure Cooker
I love this recipe on the stove so of course I wanted to try in in the pressure cooker. I skipped the bacon because I didn't have any. I usually add garlic, onions and crushed red pepper to mine though. I only used one cup of chicken broth and it came out without excess liquid which was perfect and just like when it's made on the stove. I don't ever add salt when I am cooking, so when it goes to the table everyone can add their own level of saltiness. I'm happy to make it in the pressure cooker and get rid of the oil when it's made on the stove and then add butter when it's on my plate. Now I can just sprinkle with salt.
