About this Cook
I am a single professional who enjoys cooking in any spare time I can find. I read cookbooks for fun and devour every idea. I was raised in New England and learned the simplicity of New England traditional meals. My family was originally from Pennsylvania near the Amish country and so I have some Dutch influenced dishes in my repetoire. I have lived in New Orleans for several years now and have vastly expanded my tastes now that I am surrounded by a city that has made food part of the culture.

Lover's Loaf
This is my recipe so I give it five stars, but try using the second half of the meatloaf to make meatballs instead of the second load and stick them in the freezer for an easy weeknight meal of spaghetti and meatballs on another night!

Vietnamese Rice-Noodle Salad
I made this with minor changes due to being unable to locate rice noodles today. I used some ramen-like asian noodles instead. My package was 8oz and it made 4x what I needed so I don't know if you really need 12oz of rice noodles based on the quantity of sauce. I used hoisin sauce instead of fish sauce and added 1 tbsp of rice vinegar at the end just to help blend the flavors. I chilled it and served it cold with the "Asian Salmon Cakes with Creamy Miso and Sake Sauce" recipe from this site along with some steamed baby bok choy. It was a great dinner. Will make this again.

Asian Salmon Cakes with Creamy Miso and Sake Sauce
I made this recipe tonight to the letter. I tasted the sauce before serving and decided to add about a tsp of fresh grated ginger. It was delicious. Very simple recipe for salmon cakes and the sauce was just flavorful enough to complement without killing the taste of the salmon. I often make salmon cakes and get crazy with the ingredients trying to spice things up but this is a great recipe that lets you enjoy the simple goodness that is a salmon cake. I served this with steamed baby bok choy and the Vietnamese Rice-Noodle Salad recipe from this site (substituting hoisin sauce for the fish sauce and adding a tbsp of rice vinegar). Everything went together very well. Will definitely add this to my permanent recipe book. Thanks for sending it in. Oh, the sauce made a lot more than I needed for the 6 salmon cakes I got out of the recipe so I might try it as a pasta sauce tomorrow.
