About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
One-dish/pot meals and slow cooker meals are favorites of mine for their ease of preparation. Baking desserts is my absolute favorite thing to do in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My marathon Christmas cooking baking sessions, which typically occur from December 22nd to the 24th.
My cooking tragedies
Attempting to make peanut brittle and pecan pie on a very humid day in Mobile, Alabama. These types of treats will not "set" in certain weather conditions! They ended up remaining shapeless and runny.

Easy Lasagna II
This recipe provides very good basic proportions for lasagna. I used browned, crumbled Italian sausage rather than ground beef. I used no-boil lasagna noodles to ensure that they would be soft after cooking. Also, I used parmesan shreds instead of powdered grated parmesan. When I use cottage cheese instead of ricotta in a lasagna, I always run it through my food processor to break the curds. No one will know it isn't ricotta and it's a lot cheaper!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread
This recipe was a hit! My mother loved it and she is a big fan of Irish soda bread. I used butter instead of margarine. I also used craisins instead of raisins in order to appease a raisin-hater in my family. I suggest lowering the heat to 350 and cooking it about 10-15 minutes longer. It will be visibly doughy right in the middle of the top if it isn't done yet.

Spanish Rice II
This is an easy side dish or an easy meal with the addition of a protein. The vegetarians in my family enjoy adding cottage cheese as a topping to this. The meat eaters enjoy seasoned, browned ground beef along with it.
