I wished my first "Merry Christmas" yesterday. Savana needs a pair of black pants for her Christmas program, or I would have never ventured out into shankville...I mean, Walmart. It is a madhouse there on the weekends, even without all the Christmas shopping. It turned out that I… MORE

About this Cook
Small town Oklahoma is my home but I've been all over the place. Love to cook but I've been stuck in a rut lately.
My favorite things to cook
I make a mean spaghetti sauce, before my husband met me he wouldn't eat spaghetti. The first time I made it for him he had 3 plates full! Now it's a favorite. There are now a couple meatball recipes from AR that I love. I never used to like meatballs. They are Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs and Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs. I highly recommend them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No real traditions other than I don't usually do Thanksgiving dinner. For several years now, we have gone to church for their Thanksgiving dinner. Love seeing old friends that we haven't seen since the previous year at the same dinner!
My cooking triumphs
Anything that doesn't wind up burnt is a triumph in my book....
My cooking tragedies
It is a tragedy of late that I was once so inspired in the kitchen... and now, not so much.

Spring Salad
Great combination of flavors. I prepared this the night before we served it. Blanched my broccoli florets in boiling water for a couple minutes then submerged broccoli in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Also subbed sunflower seeds for the almonds and didn't add them in until just prior to serving. I like this salad but feel that the simple dressing of mayo, vinegar and sugar was missing something that would have given this recipe 5 stars from me. Thanks for the recipe.

Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake (Kladdkaka)
Rather disappointed with this one. Baked at 300 degrees for 35 minutes (on the lower rack of my oven). Let it cool for an hour and it came out so under baked that we couldn't eat it. Stuck it back in the oven at 350 degrees and now we wait...

Delicious Salmon
This was just okay in my book. I marinated for about 4 hours, keeping the recipe as written as far as ingredients and broiling time. I thought it was rather dry but the rest of the family liked the flavor. Served with rice and roasted brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes.
