About this Cook
I am a 30 something working woman who enjoys cooking. I have no kids so I just cook for me and my boyfriend. I enjoy cooking just about anything. I am not a great baker, so I want to practice more in that area.
My favorite things to cook
Any type of pasta, meat, casseroles, and veggies. I really love trying out new drink recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas I go visit my retired parents and I fix just about everything. My mom enjoys my cooking just as much as I do.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I bake something and it's successful.
My cooking tragedies
Popped popcorn in a Teflon pot and lets just say the pot went into the trash when it was all over. :)

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak
This was amazing. I scaled this down to half and did what everyone else suggested and used cream of mushroom. I also added baby portobello mushrooms and worcestershire sauce. I cooked the meat with flour first as suggested then cooked on high for 3 hours. The meat was not dry, very moist and not salty at all. For those who felt the meat broke apart, I suggest you break off a small piece of meat and fry it first then you can see how it holds up.

Chicken Noodle Casserole II
I gave this recipe four stars because I did not follow it to a T, but it was still great. What I did was first scale down the recipe, I used a half can of cream of mushroom and a whole can of cream of chicken. I only used 1 can of canned chicken and a half bag of noodles. What I did was cook the noodles for no more then 5 minutes, cooked the onion until softned. While the noodles where cooling, mixed the soup, onion, cheese, milk and seasons (season all, lemon pepper, onion powder, garlic power and a pinch of red pepper flakes). I mixed everything together and poured in the milk slowly. I did not use alot, but enough to make the mixture creamy. I then added the noodles mixed everything together and placed in a casserole dish. I used fried onions on top since that's all I had. Baked it for 30 mintues and it came out creamy. I did not use sour cream as I did not have it and felt I did not need it.

Classic Spanish Sangria
I changes this around a bit, I added brandy and triple sec and cinnamon sticks to the recipe. I also took out the orange juice and added more sugar. I like my sangria sweet. I also let the fruit soak in just the liquor's with a little sugar and the cinnamon sticks. This recipe is a good start, but with my changes made it GREAT. If you do drink it the way I suggested, please drink it slow, it will sneak up on you later. Hope you enjoy!!!
