About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I have so much fun cooking and baking all kinds of things! I like old favorites and new items that my family loves.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family tradition is to have Mexican Food for our Christmas celebration. We have alwasy had homemade tacos and we add in some turkey enchiladas or tamales as well. For me, it's not Christmas without mexican food. Yum!
My cooking tragedies
The saddest cooking tragedies for me are when you bake something great and have trouble getting it out of the pan, or it crumbles and doesn't look as pretty as the effort you put into it. It still tastes great, though.
Recipe Reviews 5 reviews
This was great! Added a tad more Parmesan, because, why not??? Freezing the leftovers in ice cube tray topped with a bit of olive oil to pop out and use later in pasta or just to spread on bread. Yes, I spread instead of dip. You can get more that way. ;-)

Dry Buttermilk Ranch Mix
I have been looking for a Ranch Dressing/Ranch Dip mix with out MSG and all the other yucky stuff that store bought has. This is it! Perfectly what I wanted. Great flavor. I have received lots of rave reviews on all forms of this ranch. Add less liquid (buttermilk or milk) to make it a dip or more to make it salad dressing. I store the dry mix in the pantry until I need to whip something up. I have also substituted celery salt for the celery flakes, and just omitted the salt. And before I found dry buttermilk powder, I just prepared it with real buttermilk and it did the trick.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III
This is really good! I didn't have any Masa Harina, so I used 6 corn tortillas cut up and they worked well. But, don't even try it without Cumin. I was out, so I had my husband pick up some on the way home. I made the soup and tasted it. Without the Cumin, it was flat. There was a major piece missing. I added double the amount of Cumin called for and it was delicious! Oh, I also added a little Cayenne Pepper to spice it up a bit. My husband loved it too, and he's picky about soups.
