About this Cook
I am a retired Aerospace Sales Representative living in sunny Southern California with my sweet hubby. I have a passion for cooking and love all things about food, from meal planning, to grocery shopping and cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook almost everything and try to make healthy meals. If we indulge one day then the next day usually is a light meal. My favorite area of the grocery store is the produce section. I have recently gotten interested in bread making.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Even though I don't cook this as often as my hubby would like me to, one of my signature dishes is meatballs and spaghetti / also lasagne.
My cooking triumphs
My first loaf of sourdough bread using my home made starter.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes
Absolutely wonderful - I used 1 pound of red potatoes and with the exception of using 1/4 tsp of salt kept everything else as stated in the recipe. I cooked them in a cast iron skillet in a 400 degree oven and they came out perfect. Thank you Bellpepper!!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II
Excellent - used 4 frozen chicken breasts cooked in the Crockpot for 5 hours. Then shredded the chicken and added a little cumin and a lot of onion powder. Then I combined 8 ounces of light sour cream, 16 oz medium picante sauce, 1 8 oz bag low fat cheese and 2/3 of an 8 oz bag of regular cheddar cheese, 1 can of healthy Campbellā€™s cream of celery soup, 1 can of Bush's canned chili beans drained. Instead of the flour tortillas I used 12 6" corn tortillas cut in strips and made 3 layers. Cooked covered 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Then cooled 15 min before cutting. Topped with sour cream and jarred chopped jalapenos. This tasted just like chicken enchiladas without all the work. Will definitely make again.

Asian Lettuce Wraps
I have had this saved in my recipe box forever and finally made it. What a treat. Since we don't like water chestnuts I added 3 stalks of sliced celery. The flavors were amazing. I served it with steamed white rice.
