About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to use my crock pot. Things seem to always turn out better when I use it.
My cooking tragedies
My stir fry's never turn out well. Soggy broccoli - yuck!

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs
I was skeptical of this recipe because it didn't require much pre-marinating and the cook time was much shorter than I expected. I made it exactly according to the directions and the meat just didn't get tender. Ribs meat should almost fall off the bone. The vinegar marinade wasn't enough to cover the ribs (I did baste them halfway as instructed.) I have them back in the oven to see if I can salvage them. The rib meat was from a farm CSA so it was really good quality meat and I was sad to have them not turn out well.

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup
Very good. I added three stalks of sauteed celery and used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. Tasted good even before the cream and I haven't added any seasonings yet. I'm not a huge cauliflower fan but I had some leeks I needed to do something with from my Farm CSA, and this was great! Since it's blended, I might even be able to get my three year old to try it!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I make this all the time. I usually substitute half whole wheat pastry flour and half white whole wheat flour and it turns out great. I also add pecans. Very good, moist recipe. I don't melt the butter (I soften it) and I definitely mash the bananas up to make them sweeter rather than use cut banana chunks. Great recipe b/c of the sour cream!
