About this Cook
I love to cook! The best part is when folks ask for seconds. Then I know it's a success!
My favorite things to cook
Traditional, family foods. Nothing too fancy, but hearty and healthy. I love to experiment and luckily my husband isn't a picky eater.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All day cooking events for big holiday dinners. Ethnic foods from my grandparents were made growing up and are still my favorite comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
Getting confident enough to experiment on my own and not needing measuring cups/spoons. Learning to go off instinct of what tastes good/how long to cook/how much to add, etc.
My cooking tragedies
Not listening to my gut instinct on a recipe and being disappointed in the results.

Sausage Potato Stuff
It was a little greasy; would cut the olive oil to 1T next time. To jazz it up a little, added a small, diced red onion to the sausage and potatos, then added a chopped green pepper, a crushed clove of garlic, subbing a diced jalepeno for the chiles, plus about a half cup of frozen corn. One cup of cheese was just right to finish it off. Really good meal.

Broiled Sweet and Tangy Tilapia
Followed the recipe as written, aside from substituting apple cider vinegar and 1/2t dried tarragon, sprinkling the tilapia with a tiny bit of lemon pepper seasoning prior to the first flip, and only using the 1t lemon juice in the sauce, which that sauce is just about plate-lickin good. Great dinner.

Shepherd's Pie VI
We went with using frozen peas and carrots, per some reviews, and cooked them in a steamer basket over the potatos; next time I would just add them to the beef mixture to cook. Used minced green onions in mashed potatos. Added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, a few dashes of rosemary, marojam, thyme and worcestershire sauce in the beef. Cooked the beef in a cast iron dutch oven, then did our layers in that and popped it in the oven. I think we'll be doing this recipe again!
