About this Cook
I love to cook in the fall and winter! When Labor Day rolls around I'm thinking ahead to cocooning and making soups, chilis, etc.
My favorite things to cook
Soups and baking
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom's chicken noodle soup recipe, tweaked a little, is the one I use. We have lots of traditions around cooking in our family -- muffins on the first day of school, bat pie in October (chicken pot pie with cookie cut outs of bats on top). I make applesauce that my kids love so much that they turn up their noses at the jarred stuff.
My cooking triumphs
My soups are really good! My kids take their lunches to school and I really pride myself on making creative, healthy lunches.
My cooking tragedies
I made the worst apple pie ever a couple of weeks ago. The apples were the consistency of sauce and it was just about inedible.

Light Avocado Egg Salad
I love egg salad and I love avocados, so I was happy to find this recipe and excited to try it. It was bland and dry. I would not recommend this to anyone, and I'm not sure how the recipe could fixed to make it better.

Spinach Brownies
I followed the recipe except for a couple of changes: Instead of 1/2 cup butter, I used 1/4 cup Smart Balance butter spread I added a generous amount of garlic I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour I added a pinch of red pepper It was absolutely wonderful! My version was healthier but oh, it was just so good!

Alisha's Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
With the changes I made, my family loved this. I liked it OK. What I did differently: 1/2 cup of cheese blended with the mashed potato mixture; 1/2 sauteed onion added; 3 cloves garlic added. What I'd change in the future -- try to figure out how the make the mashed mixture so the texture's not so gluey!
