Our Wedding!
About this Cook
I am a military wife living in a joyful home with her husband. I try to make everything from scratch, including my breads and home care products.
My favorite things to cook
I love spinach and artichoke dip, potatoes of any kind, and chocolate chip cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's chocolate chip cookie recipe has been passed down through the family! It's a secret :)
My cooking triumphs
My spinach and artichoke dip is always the first thing devoured at parties. It's just that good.
My cooking tragedies
I have definitely ignited a pan of oil before and ruined my pan. Dinner was served in another pan that night, though.

Hot Maryland Crab Dip
Awesome, simple crab dip recipe. Changes I made: added 1 jalapeno, extra old bay and some paprika as other reviewers suggested. Also used canned crab, drained SUPER well, and used regular mayo instead of miracle whip or creamy salad dressing or whatever (I have used regular mayo in a lot of dips and it always works fine). Great flavor and the cheddar cheese crust was delicious! If you serve it at room temperature, I recommend mixing the cheddar cheese in because it hardens if it's on top and makes it hard to dip. Served with Hawaiian Luau chips. Awesome!

Keema (Indian-Style Ground Meat)
I was looking for a quick and dirty recipe that involved the use of garam masala and ground beef. This one fit the bill. Four stars because I believe it would have been bland without the spices I used suggested by other reviewers. My recipe used a package of ground beef, 2.5 tablespoons garam masala, a teaspoon of salt, a dash of coriander, cayenne pepper, cumin and cinnamon. I ground the coriander myself. Then I mixed in the onion, garlic, beef broth and tomato paste as suggested. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal and I'll be keeping it around for future use. Thanks again!

Alfredo Sauce
I added rosemary/oregano instead of fresh parsley, and used 1 cup of parmesan/asiago cheese instead of the amount in the recipe. This was fabulous. Will definitely be making it again.
