Behold My Cookbook!

As any personal cookbook should be, this space is a work in progress! I'll be working on putting up my recipes slowly and in some cases a couple versions so we can adapt for time/spoons as needed. =3

(Also, you can find my notes on reheating things, recipes/techniques i want to try, recipes i'm working on refining, and odd and end notes can be found here because I forget generic things like temperatures/times for cooking stuff a lot.)

My Recipes

Recipes I've Tried

  • Chicken Bacon Ranch Tater Tot Casserole - Enjoyed how easy this was to put together and have with a veggie side. I'll be working to tweak the flavors as I think it needs the ranch flavor to shine through a little more, but I highly recommend a low/no sodium cream of chicken soup and seasoning to your taste.
  • Creamy Cajun Sausage Pasta - Added onions and bell peppers for some veg.
  • Creamy Sausage Gnocchi
  • Honey Garlic Meatballs - I recommend reducing the amount of soy sauce to 3/4 cup to balance the savory and sweet better, and my sauce never thickens enough which has been fixed by adding a little corn starch toward the end of cooking.
  • One-pot Chicken Fajita Pasta
  • Pork & Cabbage Over Rice - Another really versatile recipe (if you love cabbage, lol). I'd like to make this as written, but I subbed the olive oil for sesame oil, added a little soy sauce to my broth, and added twoish tablespoons of brown sugar, and it tasted d i v i n e. I also added one julienned carrot and some green onions to zazz it up a bit, but it really didn't need it.
  • Rotel Southwest Chicken Skillet - Super versatile recipe. Add beans, add more topings, use ground beef instead of chicken, put it on a tortilla. I basically used to make this in my rice cooker, but the tomato sauce makies it nicer. I'm also lazy and have just been using taco seasoning in place of the suggested spices.
  • Swedish Meatballs - May double the sauce next time we have it with mashed potatoes!
