About me: I collect cookbooks and love to cook and try new recipes. I tested recipes for Leite's Culinaria for almost eight years. I learned to cook from many good southern cooks including my Mom, Dad, several Aunts and my Grandmothers. My children and husband also like to cook and try new foods and recipes. My son still lives with us but our daughter is married. She often visits to cook with me. We are adventuresome eaters willing to try new things.

Broccoli with Jalapeno and Garlic : page 46

This was so flavorful. It comes from the microwave section. It's started in the microwave and finished in a fry pan with a tiny bit of olive oil, garlic, jalapeno and a splash of lime juice which really brightens up the dish. I served this wiht the Sirloin steak wht creamy horseradish sauce page 210 and Lemony Herb Potatoes page 244.

Lemony Herbed Potatoes : page 244

While this was good they just weren't as flavorful as I would have liked. I don't think a 1/2 teaspoon of the oregano and lemon pepper was enough for the amount of potatoes.

This was very good. It's from the broiling section and a couple tomatoes are halved and broiled along side the steak. I served this with the broccoli and lemony herbed potatoes from the same book.
