About this Cook
I love to try new recipes and I am always looking for recipes that offer a twist to the traditional dish.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood dishes, chicken dishes, beef dishes, lasagna, salads ...
My cooking tragedies
Anything involving baked goods such as cookies, cakes, pies, etc. They are always too dry, too hard or too ... something. I can't bake for the life of me.

Perfect Ten Baked Cod
Cooked this for dinner last night and it was just okay to me. Took others suggestions and omitted the white wine. The dish wasn't bad but wasn't all that it was cracked up to be, either. Just my opinion. My four year old didn't like this. My husband said it was "good" but I could tell he wasn't crazy about it. Probably won't be making this version again.

Easy Mexican Casserole
I took the suggestions of other reviewers and used a packet of taco seasoning. The taste of the meat mixture was okay but, overall, I didn't like it. The sour cream separated because it was heated, and I didn't like the consistency of the "broken" chips. They almost had a chewy, stale taste. A lot of the chips didn't stick to the casserole. I doubt that I'd make this version, again.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup
I paired this soup with a turkey and cheese melt and, boy, was this good! So here's what I did: I used the suggestion of a previous reviewer and chopped up the stems and leaves of the broccoli. I sauteed the onion and celery in butter until tender; added in the broccoli and chicken broth; simmered it for about 20-25 minutes; in the meantime, I made the white sauce (butter, flour, half and half instead of whole milk and beat it until it was thick); then, I mashed the broccoli/onion/celery/broth mixture with a potato masher (to leave some texture to it); and added in the white sauce and let everything simmer for a bit. I did add salt to my desired taste (because I like seasoning and the recipe did not call for any).
