About this Cook
I'm a housewife. I have a husband, a super son, a super daughter-in-law, 3 super grandsons, and 1 super granddaughter. Cooking is the most fun when my husband and I work together on a recipe. I find it hard, sometimes, to find recipes for just 2 people and always have too many leftovers.
My favorite things to cook
My husband and I like to experiment making up different kinds of food recipes. Some are great, some are awful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Black-eyed peas on New Years Day for good luck. Mexican food is a tradition on Friday nights. My husband and I started to make this a tradition about three years ago. Every winter I make 8 qts. of spaghetti sauce and 8 qts of chili and freeze it in 2-serving containers. On cold winter nights a Norwegian beef and potatoes recipe, passed on for 3 generations from my husband's great grandmother, is cooked up. Enough is made to freeze for more servings on later nights.
My cooking triumphs
Low carb, easy-to-make desserts. I threw a bunch of leftovers (meats and vegetables) into a skillet with a can of chicken stock, white wine, seasonings, and xanthan. Let it cook on low for about an hour. It turned out pretty delicious. Now, I have to find the paper that I wrote the recipe on. I'll post it as soon as I find it. Finally conquered zucchini pancakes. They actually stayed together.
My cooking tragedies
The worst was adding too much red wine in a green bean recipe made for family on Thanksgiving. I baked a batch of meatballs too long and maybe at too high of a temperature and they were hard as rocks.

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies
Followed baking instructions, but made a few substitutes: Instead of beef I used 1/2 lb. bratwurst and 1/2 lb. Andouille sausage. Other substitutes: 1 cup diced poblano pepper instead of bell peppers, 1 cup extra sharp Cheddar cheese, and 1 cup Monterrey Jack cheese. Sprinkled about 1/2 cup "4 cheese" mix over top after 20 or 25 minutes of baking, and baked another 5 minutes until cheese melted.

Cheesy Peas
Very good. It needs a different cheese, although I don't know what. The cheddar overpowered the other flavors. But, it was still very good.

Tomato Mozzarella Salad
I followed the recipe exactly as Joann Han prepared it. It is light and has a perky flavor that is perfect for a 90 degree day.
