About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
... are the things that can be correctly made only by me. This eclectic list includes everything from Labor of Love Lasagna to instant ramen noodles (only Maruchan brand, water level and cooking time are critical) to Jack-Daniels-Chocolate-Pecan-Pie with hot-water crust.

I made a batch of this and compared it to "Pesto Sauce," also on this site, and this is the clear winner for me! The ratio of basil/nuts/oil/cheese was perfect, and next time I will definitely try the parsley for a different twist.

Gravy Baked Pork Chops
This recipe is exactly what I wanted: a simple, foolproof recipe to use up pork chops on a night when I wasn't in the mood to cook. It may be straight out of the 70s, but there's a reason it's still around. Thanks!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
I have made this time and time again, and people still request it at least once a week! It's been popular with my husband, my nursing class (80% Mexican), and the wide variety of international guests that stay at our house. The only change I make us substituting kale (stems removed) for spinach, and adding the kale about 5 min. before serving so it can soften.
