About this Cook
I love to try new recipes. If I don't have exactly what is called for, I don't hesitate to make changes or substitutions. I believe that recipes are basic guidelines, not absolutes!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite memories are of holidays and helping Mom and Granny in the kitchen. I am hoping to pass those special memories along to my children as well as the pleasure and fun of everyday food preparations.
My cooking triumphs
Getting up the courage to cook a large whole boneless pork loin - it turned out very moist and tasty!
My cooking tragedies
My many failed attempts at homemade mac-n-cheese... there's a reason it comes in a box!!! The reason is for people like me!!!

Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions
Wow! This is great! I pretty much made this as closely as my pantry supply would allow me to... I had a bit less than half a cup of vegetable oil, so I used walnut oil for the sauce. Used the vegetable oil for the meat - took it a bit longer to cook, but it still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Alfredo Sauce I
This was a really good recipe! Following other reviews, I did the following: warmed the whipping cream to almost a simmer, then added the butter in tablespoon-cut pieces. Then, I added a blend of packaged shredded cheese that was parmesan, romano and asiago - 1-2/3 cups. I used a whisk and added just a little cheese at a time, whisking the whole time. After the cheese was melted and the sauce was smooth, I added about a clove of finely chopped garlic and a couple of teaspoons of Italian seasoning. The consistency was fine to me - a little thicker than standard tomato sauce. I served it over spaghetti squash, and it was wonderful! Thanks for sharing your recipe Kathy!

The Best Slow Cooker Cream Corn
This was a really good recipe. DH and I have never had cream corn other than "out of a can," so this was an awesome change! Thanks for the recipe. We will be making this again!
