The best compliment you've received

Last night, I was watching my favorite, Ina Garten on TV with my 5 yr old daughter. As we were watching Ina making her delicious caramel syrup, my daughter said, wow, mommy, she looks like she is a good cook'er' but I think you are a better cooker.
Made my day. =)
Sorry Monica, but it is not healthy. This is my approximation...no real recipe.
4 cans black beans, drained.
4 cloves minced garlic
1 brown onion, diced
2 Tb olive oil
32 oz can diced tomatoes
1Tb chili powder
1 dark beer (I use dos equis dark)
3 Tbs cilantro, minced
1lb spicy bulk breakfast sausage (I use Jimmy Dean)
Saute the garlic and onions in olive oil. Brown the sausage. Deglaze with the beer. Add the beans, tomatoes and spices. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add the cilantro before serving. I top with sour cream.
There is nothing unique about it, it just fits my taste.
that is a nice moment Monica - mine is when the grumpy fusspots who have nothing good to say about anything have thirds. speaks volumes.
HA! Similarly, from one of my uncles re the oatmeal M&M cookies Nanny always baked: "These are just like Ma's--'cept you didn't burn them!" :D
This one really touches my heart, though. Someone who follows my blog--who is not related to me--told my mom she has a folder with printouts of all my recipes. Just wow!
Whenever my #1 taster says, "That's a keeper!" or "____ is f*cking awesome/the bomb!" Music to my ears!
