Chili, beer bread, biscuits and gravy
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting up on Saturday mornings and making a big breakfast of biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, and bacon!
My cooking triumphs
tirimisu and non-breadmachine bread
My cooking tragedies

Bodacious Broccoli Salad
Very good, however, after following the recipe exactly I thought it was too peppery. And I really love pepper too. So I mixed about 1/3 C of more mayo with about 1 T of more lemon juice and 1 T of more red wine vinegar, then added it to the salad and it seemed to help lessen the peppery flavor a bit. Will definitely keep making this recipe, but with only 1/2 the pepper called for.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic
Restaurant quality for sure! I left out the flour as other reviewers suggested. I also doubled the sauce and I'm glad I did because it was delicious!! I did thicken it a little with corn starch just because I wanted it thicker, but the flavor was delicious either way. Thank you colleenlora for a fabulous recipe!

Baked Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, and Coconut Milk Soup
Delicious! I changed it, BUT only because of what I had on hand! I bet that if I would have made it as is, it would have been 6 stars instead of five! I didn't have a pumpkin, so I used a can of pumpkin puree, and I didn't have any broth, so I used an extra can of coconut milk plus a can of water. I didn't want to, but it's all I had. Still great! Helpfull hint - cover it while it heats on the stove! It's kind of like spagheti sauce, in that it will bubble, and spew everywhere! So, just cover it while you warm it. Thanks for the great recipe!
