So what’s the big deal about Allrecipes.com?  Hmm. Gonna take a while to explain it I guess so I had better start from the beginning..It was sometime in 1999 that I was online, looking for recipes of some kind. What exactly I was looking for I can’t remember. That was thirteen years ago and my… MORE

About this Cook
I cook because I love to create. I find it to be very soothing and rewarding. My mother was my greatest influence, but because of my love of experimentation I think I am a better cook than she is now. :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything healthy. I love to try new recipes and love the challenge of altering high caloriefat recipes to something more healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swedish Christmas cookies. These were baked by my mother and now by me.
My cooking triumphs
I have had few failures when cooking. Every new recipe is a triumph when it turns our terrific.
My cooking tragedies
The first cake I made by myself was a bit of a disaster. I think I was 11 or 12. I didn't let it cool in the pans after baking and frosted it while it was still warm. Needless to say, it sort of fell apart. Refusing to let that stop me, I held the cake together with half a box of toothpicks. My father ate half the cake.. he was a good Dad. Didn't complain once about the toothpicks. :)

Mexican TVP and Cheese
I thought this was nice. I had some TVP and wanted to use it up, so I made these. Made them into burgers by adding some egg whites and a few bread crumbs

Goat Cheese Sauce
I had some problems with the recipe.. mainly the amount of flour. Standard Bechamel sauce is 1T flour to 1 cup of milk. This has double the flour and resulted in a very very thick gloppy sauce. I also found the diced onions in the sauce not to my liking. I added more milk and pureed the sauce to smooth.. much better although i didnt have any more goat cheese so that flavor was diluted by the additional milk. I posted two photos.. one with the thicker sauce and one with much more milk and pureed. I realize the recipe says milk too taste but doubling the milk is way more of adjustment and also results in less goat cheese flavor.. YMMV..

Tofu, Red Onions, Walnuts, and Blue Cheese
Quite tasty. Only change I would make would be to marinate the tofu next time... and I did stir in some leftover cooked broccoli. I liked that addtiion
