About this Cook
I'm a mom of 4 all grown children, two dogs, one cat, wife of one man who also loves to cook AND is good at it, and busy legal secretary. I love to cook, I have a galley kitchen that is not well suited to "gatherings", but we manage. Holidays are interesting but very tasty at our house. I've been a fan of the All Recipes site for many years and I share my reviews as often as I can and share the awesome recipes I find with friends, family and co-workers.
My favorite things to cook
I try to find at least one recipe a week on this site to cook. I would say 99% of the time it's wonderful. I love beef recipes, chicken recipes, lamb, and fish. I love to bake and found a fabulous cake recipe that my future daughter-in-law wants me to make for her WEDDING! No pressure! I should post that one, though I cannot take credit for it's creation.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have roasted turkey with all the fixin's for Thanksgiving, lamb for Christmas, and Standing Rib Roast with garlic mashed potatoes, yorkshire pudding, roasted balsamic asparagus, roasted garlic, and blackeyed peas (recipe from this site) for New Year's dinner. We typically have a chili party for the superbowl complete with hot dogs, hamburgers and fries - and a little testosterone...
My cooking triumphs
Paella - Once I found a paella pan that I really liked,it was clear sailing from there. Whether my oven was big enough was another question...It feeds a LOT so we invite friends over. One BIG triumph is my 23 year old daughter now asks for my recipes!! The boys request specific dinners to impress girl friends or sports friends. Friends ask for recipes for something that I brought to a function or had at my house. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Does life get any better than that???
My cooking tragedies
When I ran out of food for the number of guests I had. Who knew they would like it so much? That's kind of embarrassing. I don't think I ever burned anything beyond recognition, I may have stuck some rice or beans to the bottom of a pot once or twice though. Once I caught some wax paper on fire on my gas stove - THAT was interesting. High flash point I guess.

Stuffed Green Peppers I
Loved this. I changed it up just a bit for flavor preferences. I used a 14.5 oz can of tomato sauce instead of the soup, and I added Italian seasoning to it. I used diced organic tomatoes instead of the whole peeled tomatoes, and I included the liquid. I used less cheese only because I don't recall my mom using cheese in her peppers when I was a kid and I didn't know how it would taste. I think the cheese doesn't add a whole lot of flavor but it helps everything stick together. I added two cloves of minced garlic to the beef and onions for more flavor. It was quite good and made great lunch leftovers!

My mom used to make this back in the 70's and I loved it then. This recipe is exactly what she made. I made this last night and it was a huge hit... stunk up the house really well too! I will say that there is no way those potatoes are going to cook to tender in 10 minutes. You can certainly microwave them first to cut down on cooking time, just drain them well before you put them in hot oil. This is probably one of the easiest dishes to make when you are short on time. Everyone loved it!
