About this Cook
I have been married 25 years and I am the mother of two college students. My husband is a wonderful man who patiently put up with many cooking disasters. You see, I could pretty much only boil water when I got married at 19. Thankfully, in time I have become a "good cook," so I have been told by others (not just my family.) I learned the old school way from recipe books and cooking magazines. There was no Internet in 1982.

Quick Pasta Sauce
Often times I veer from the original recipe. I had NO time and NO jar sauce on hand. So, I followed the recipe and found it to be simply perfect. No more jar sauce, as this will be my last minute standby for a no fuss meal. Thanks for sharing.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
Simply Perfect! Like other reviewers I would recommend and extra 1/2 cup of cheese. (I prefer x-sharp cheddar.) Also, microwave the potato slices for 8 minutes prior to baking as another had recommended. Allows the mixture to be creamier w/ less cooking time. Lastly, remove cover to brown top, as someone else advised. Combined all 3 recommendations and it was Simply PERFECT!
