About this Cook
I was born in Shreveport, LA in an Army hospital. I have only visited there a couple of times during my adulthood. I've lived in Germany twice and in HI for 3 years in my preteens. I was raised on good ole southern cooking. My family raised gardens where ever we could. I am married to a Hispanic man and have learned a great deal of cooking hipanic foods. I love to cook anything though.
My favorite things to cook
I love Mexican food as well as other cuisines. The flavors of foods from other cultures fascinates me. I have recently learned that spinach is a common food staple for India so now I am searching for recipes from there. I love pasta, beans, and soups mainly. But I will try to cook any culture style food that is affordable from my local grocery.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas Dinner and 4th of July BBQs. Southern foods are so versatile, spicy and quantitative. I have so much fun cooking for crowds.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I've made up and can't repeat. Italian has always worked well for me. So has Mexican cooking.
My cooking tragedies
I have trouble with pie crusts and homemade tortillas. I give up. A good tortilla is the house brand from my favorite grocery store here in TX.

Cream of Spinach Soup
I've made spinach soup from fresh spinach since I saw a recipe on the back of the bag of fresh spinach back in the 90's. That soup was awesome. This recipe is very similar except for the frozen spinach and lack of parmesan cheese. I've tried to copy that recipe since because I figured it would be included on the next bag of spinach I bought, I didn't cut out the recipe. But not so lucky. I know that nutmeg is in the recipe just not how much. I see some people have altered the recipe to include the nutmeg though. Try adding about 3/4 cup or so of parmesan cheese into the soup...you will love it. I do anyway. I've even substituted part mozzarella and part parmesan. Today I used heavy cream because it would get old otherwise.

Doggy Meatloaf with Vegetables
I would never use white bread. Dogs need to eat healthy too.The recipe is mine only it has an apple and I use navy beans in mine with brown rice and/or sweet potatoes, and turkey and spinach as well as the carrots other listed ingredients. I make one giant meatloaf and freeze portions until I'm done with the one in the fridge. I have big dogs and little dogs and they all love the meatloaf. BTW, to the person who said to use garlic, it's not good for dogs at all. Onion and Garlic are toxic to dogs.

Homemade Dog Food
I love making dog food for my pets. I have used basically this recipe baked not boiled. However, I refuse to add garlic. Garlic is toxic to dogs as is onion. Give any dog enough garlic, especially on a daily basis, it will kill them. I give a prescription tablet for fleas from my vet to my dogs. My vet said the food is healthy and DO NOT EVER GIVE A DOG GARLIC! three stars because of the garlic
