Reviewed Pumpkin Seed Dried Cherry Trail Mix
"I made this trail mix a few weeks ago when I saw it on TV. I put it in snack bags and took it with us on a trip. Also, gave some to a friend who was recovering from surgery. We love this trail mix so much I am making some more today. My friend sent a thank you and said she loved everything in her goodie bag, especially the seed/nut packets. I""
"Wow! When I saw Anne making these cookies on her show, my mouth fell open in amazement. This recipe is almost identical to a recipe I came up with (I thought) and have been making for a while. I love Anne's cookie recipe and would have never thought about adding the salt on top! What a difference a little salt makes, right? My cookies have dr""
"Ellie, I love your show and I am trying a lot of your recipes. Just tried the grilled veggie salad and loved it, but my husband wasn't crazy about it. I love the flavors, but I changed the mint to fresh basil just because I had basil on hand. It was a little oily for me, so when I make it again I will cut way back on the oil in the dressing. T""
My house is empty, except for my husband so I have plenty of time to cook, watch Food Network and try out new recipes. I consider myself a "Self-Made Chef." I started early because my mother was a wonderful cook and she allowed me in her kitchen to experiment with cooking. That experience created in me a love for cooking that has grown stronger through the years.
I have always enjoyed cooking and creating recipes or changing then to make them my own. I wish now that I had spent my college money on a good culinary school, instead of a degree in social welfare. "Cooking" is one of my passions and its what I love to do more than anything else. Go Figure!
My husband is a lucky man. He calls me his "gourmet chef" and enjoys my wonderfully, delicious dishes daily.
I love and enjoy the flavors of Mediterranean and use them alot. Anything, Mediterranean, Italian I love, love, love. I also love and enjoy the flavors of Southwestern or Mexican. I lived in Texas and California in my early married years and those Southwestern influences hit me early and I am so glad they did. I am always cooking something Italian or Mexican.
I am known for my Greek Salad with lemon and olive oil dressing. My favorite restaurant is my own kitchen where I know the food is good.
On the sweet side, I love fresh fruits and anything chocolate.
