I am a new cook so to speak.  I never liked cooking but now I am finding it to be a lot of fun and rewarding.  It also helps since my husband was the only cook before.  Now we motivate each other to try new meals.  It's a great way to make your guests visit satisfying, too.
Desserts:  Husband likes Creme Brulee.  I like warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.

Mexican Lasagna

Mmmmmmm! This was decicious! I ate the leftovers for lunch today with chunks of avacodo on top. I used corn tortillas. My husband and I both loved it. This goes into my personally created cookbook (binder) as a staple meal! — mommyof2gals 2/3/2011

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

This was very good. It's a keeper! I tried a pot pie a few weeks ago that used Bisquick for the crust and didn't like it. Using pie crust is much better. — Cherylbythesea630 1/29/2011
Chicken Milanese - Breaded Chicken Cutlets

Chicken Milanese - Breaded Chicken Cutlets

This is very good. The directions were long so I wasn't sure how easy it would be. I skipped the butterfly portion of cutting the chicken and just tenderized the pieces as they were. It wasn't hard and will get faster each time. I like the suggestions for various uses to make different meals. This may be useful with the prepare ahead and freeze it idea. — sgrishka 1/19/2011

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Grandma's Corn Pudding

I made this corn pudding as a side dish for my Christmas meal. Just because it's called "pudding" doesn't mean it's a dessert. Everyone loved it! This is a simple and delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing your recipe! — BillDSmith 12/26/2008
Simple Spinach and Red Bell Pepper Pasta

Simple Spinach and Red Bell Pepper Pasta

This was very good and I like the easy part! The meal can be made quickly on a week night. I didn't believe that the recipe could be right for all that spinich but then I found that it cooked down and could use the full 10 ounces (one pre-packaged bag). This meal could use a little more flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I will definitely make this again. — lizmari 11/30/2008
Bread Pudding

The kids loved this too! [I posted this recipe.] — BlizzardCooks 8/4/2008
Mexican Casserole

Mexican Casserole

Looking at the difference between your active time and total time, I'm assuming it takes 40 - 50 minutes to cook in the oven (depending on if you included the 10 minutes cooling time). Is that correct? I didn't see a cooking time and didn't want to check for bubbling constantly. Thanks. This looks good. I want to try it! — byoungerscott 6/9/2008
Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Excellent! I awarded Sherri a medal because this recipe is far beyond the average home cooked meal in flavor. It's like dining at a five-star restaurant in my own home! We put the chicken over tomato-basil fettucine and poured the sage-butter sauce over it. Heavenly delicious! Definitely a keeper and one to impress guests! 4/7/2008
Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes

I made this for my Easter meal this year. All the guests were in love with it and everyone had seconds! Not difficult either [I posted this recipe.] — BlizzardCooks 4/3/2008
Lauri's Stuffed Shells (12 Points)

Lauri's Stuffed Shells (12 Points)

I didn't like the marinara sauce out of the jar that I chose. I messed up the amounts of cheese. I will try this again and try to get it right and pick a better sauce. I think I will look into homemade marinara sauces because we can't find any out of the jar that we like! — laurijax 4/3/2008
Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip

Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip

The dip was absolutely delicious! I appreciated how the cook tried to make these as healthy as possible. My problem was that I thought we had Tabasco but didn't and used some other hot sauce instead. Tabasco would have been better. And the wings might be better if marinated for a while. Great recipe. We can play around with the hot sauce as we wish. 4/2/2008
Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff

This was a great way to cook stroganoff - in the slow cooker! The sauce was too rich for me and my husband. We plan to try this again experimenting with a reduced amount of cream cheese - probably half the amount called for. There was an abundance of sauce so leaving out some of the cream cheese probably won't be a problem Liked it over extra wide egg noodles. It will take a little experimenting to get to our liking but a great start! — Kowgirl777 4/2/2008
