I am married to the love of my life and we have boy/girl twins born in May of 2011. They keep me busy, but when I have time I love trying new recipes. I really enjoy making recipes from my garden veggies, especially spaghetti sauce. Now that I've made spaghetti sauce from scratch I can't touch that stuff from the super market! This summer I want to find some pizza sauce recipes. If you know of any good recipes for preserving fresh veggies let me know!
I have 3 cats who come running to the kitchen every time they hear a can open because they think it's cat food. I also have 2 dogs, a recued greyhound and a rescued pit bull/black lab/ german shepherd/ who knows what else.
I am always looking for new efficient tricks in the kitchen. My favorite kitchen "gadget" is my food processor, especially as I begin looking into making baby foods.
I am the type of person who just throws some of this and some of that in to cook together and it usually turns out good so it can be difficult actually narrowing down the amounts - if you use one of my recipes keep that in mind and please adjust to your tastes!
I can not cook without garlic, any recipe I try out that does not have garlic I add it in (except desserts).
The way I rate recipes:
5 stars - stellar, this recipe will be added into my weekly dinner rotation.
4 stars - very good, either my husband or I really liked it but the other one just thought it was okay.
3 stars - okay, I will make it very occasionally.
2 & 1 stars - I don't rate many recipes this low, but I will if I followed all the steps exactly and it was not something we were able to finish eating.
I usually try to put in my rating how I changed the recipe - this usually entails adding garlic.
I am trying to cook healthy and yet still delicious. I buy all organic meats and dairy and I try to on produce. I am very wary of all the hormones and additives put in food and ultimately would like to cook everything from scratch - although I know this is a pipe dream at this point in my life. I detest fast food, I really believe that fast food is ruining the health of the majority of America (that and T.V. - but I won't get started on that).
My favorite dishes include my spaghetti sauce, recipes made with garden veggies, and yeast bread (when I have the time!)
My husband's favorite recipe that I cook for special occasions is recipe #118115
My mom's page is: http://www.recipezaar.com/member/296050
Her recipes are good, usually heavy food that I think is great for winter. My chicken and rice recipe is actually hers - I just got around to publishing it before her!
