About this Cook
I enjoy cooking for others and with others, but hate cooking for myself and all by myself. And I can't seem to cook dinner on the days that I work...no energy! I now know that I can live on sandwiches for weeks because of this personal flaw.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food, things that simmer for hours
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fruit cobblers, putting yogurt on top of pancakes, eating salty foods w/ sugary foods (i.e. saltine crackers w/ frosting on top, salted peanuts inside cola bottles)
My cooking triumphs
Won tons, chicken and dumplings, chili, baked risotto, chocolate chip cookies
My cooking tragedies
Any quick weeknight dinner, tortilla soup (I used flour tortillas instead of corn...they soaked up all the liquid and made a giant pot of pasty soup)
Recipe Reviews 2 reviews
Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs
After reading the reviews, I followed the suggestions of browning the meatballs before adding them to the sauce and using 1 can crushed tomatoes/1 can whole and pureeing the sauce after it cooked for a while. My sauce tasted bitter, which could be due either to the brand of canned tomato stuff or else the tomato paste. Any suggestions anyone?

Simply Parmesan Chicken
EASY! Took longer to bake than it said, but not a problem. I put it with rotini pasta and a white sauce (butter, flour, basil, milk, and garlic) - overall, could have used a bit more flavor but that's easily done. Thanks!
