About this Cook
I have always loved to cook. I was fortunate to be around my mom a lot who loved to entertain and to try different things. I am especially lucky that my husband isn't picky and will try anything! Trust me- he is honest when it tastes horrible. LOL!
My favorite things to cook
Home made soups and stews and casseroles are my favorite things to cook. I use the crock pot a lot and love to experiment. I would love to learn true gourmet cooking.

Spaghetti Pie II
My husband LOVES this! I usually use linguine or fettucine because I like the wider noodles. I use a jar of Ragu or Prego rather than the tomatoes & tomato paste. I sautee the onion and green pepper with hamburger and garlic and add a little bit of Italian Seasoning. I top the completed pie with a little more parmesan and a little mozzarella. Bake covered for 20 minutes. I then uncover and add more mozzarella and bake for 5 more minutes. Extra sauce is a must! I usually heat up some extra to put on top after baked as we like it saucy and moist. Excellent recipe!

Easy White Chicken Enchiladas
I have made these several times. The first time as written and way too bland. After that I add 1/2 package of taco seasoning mix and that totally changes and adds a lot of flavor. I sautee the chicken in olive oil with McCormicks N'Orleans cajun seasoning and cut into pieces. I spray my pan with pan and don't put the sauce in the bottom. I place the sauce on top and the last few minutes sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. My hubby requests at least weekly. With those changes definitely a 5 star recipe!

Ground Beef Stroganoff
This was a good recipe. I did as others and added 3/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup mayo. I increased the garlic powder and added 1 tsp. black pepper and salt to taste. 1/2 package of lipton onion soup helps the flavor a lot! This is great over a baked potato also.
