About this Cook
I am a 30 year old mother of a 7-year-old boy. I'm living in my dream town and doing my dream job!
My favorite things to cook
Quick things that my kiddo and I enjoy. Rice concoctions (with cheese or vegetables or chicken or beef). Pasta concoctions (with cheese or vegetables or just different sauces) though we're trying to stay away from gluten as much as possible - so brown rice pasta and pastas made from corn are usually on our menu. TexMex varieties.
My cooking triumphs
I'm completely thrilled when I make a balanced meal that actually LOOKS like something off a cooking show.
My cooking tragedies
My beans always come out hard!!!

Mexican Fire Rice
I made minor changes to this. My six-year-old and I don't really handle spicy too well, so I put in about 3/4 cup medium chunky salsa and about 1/2 cup sour cream. I also use sage sausage because that's the only sausage I actually like. I use Daiya cheddar shreds on top. We now make this 3-4 times a month because we love it so much. Occasionally we'll use the leftovers in burritos the next day but usually we just eat it with spoons.

Kat's Alfredo Potatoes
i did exactly what most everyone else did. substituted pizza cheese (hate swiss), added garlic powder, halved the milk, omitted onions (allergic), and added extra cheese and cooked 10 extra minutes. The top was golden brown, the potatoes were tender but not mushy, the sauce was the perfect consistency. i was thoroughly impressed with it all. thanks for the great recipe!
