I made turkey meatballs the other night from an AR Recipe except I substituted a lot of stuff, I added shredded carrots left over from 5 star eggrolls, and mushrooms and a bunch of other stuff and they came out great.  I couldn't wait to tell you all about it except when I went in to write… MORE

About this Cook
I am a retired registered nurse. I have two fabulous grandchildren ages 10 and 7, they live only 1 mile from me so we cook together often.
My favorite things to cook
I like one pot meals, slow cooker, rustic fare. Lately, I am cultivating recipes for soup and have turned out some really good results, especially using curry seasoning. I am not a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make many of my mother's dishes. I like to entertain with just a wide array of appetizers sometimes, even though it is labor intensive.
My cooking triumphs
My Italian spaghetti sauce. My famous pot roast made in an oven bag. Appetizers.
My cooking tragedies
My latest debacle is making Pho, Vietnamese beef soup. Very labor intensive, many exotic ingredients, cook all day. I went to strain it through a cheesecloth lined colander and forgot to put anything under the colander. Down the drain it went; 7 hours worth of broth. Oh Well!

Beef Shish Kebabs for Freezer Cooking
marinade was so so, Vegetables were good raw and unfrozen ist night. After freezing they were just a mushy soft mess. I will not use this method again.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce
I made it exactly as the recipe listed. It was seved hot, and was very good. The raw onion was a little strong. We rated it a 4, then I added some cold leftover chopped roast chicken and some homemade riccotta cheese crumbles which took it to 5 stars. Thanks for a new twist on pasta. Still have some leftover for lunch tomorrow, and I will see how it tastes cold. Good I bet.

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce
Flavor was okay but I find when you cook already prepared tomato sauce for a long time, it gets kinda slimy. It is meant only to be heated up. The texture of this sauce ruined it for me.
