About this Cook
I am a retired flight attendant living north of Boston with my husband, an airline pilot, happily busying myself with volunteer work. With our “finicky child” off to college, I am cooking for two. I collect cookbooks and have no idea how many I have. With a glass of wine and a cookbook in my hands I am totally transported to my “happy place”. I admire both the creators of the recipes and the food stylists who make their creations look so appetizing in the photographs. Of course, the helpful reviews and fabulous photos from others keep me coming back to Allrecipes. I don’t consider myself a good cook, just a good "chooser of recipes". One of my favorite sources for new recipes and cooking tips are my many friends who are passionate and talented cooks; I am constantly inspired and delighted by their culinary expertise.
My favorite things to cook
I love the occasional indulgence, but for the most part I like tasty but healthy meals. I love trying new recipes so a recipe has to knock my socks off for me to make it more than once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone gets to choose his or her own birthday meal, from beginning to end. We have had some unusual meals and even more unusual birthday cakes, pies, tortes, etc.
My cooking triumphs
I love sharing recipes. I always feel great when guests leave my home clutching favored recipes in their hands.
My cooking tragedies
There was a “nut loaf” incident once, but I would hardly call it a tragedy.

Mexican Grilled Corn
Great flavor! I only boiled the corn for about two minutes and it was perfectly done when the kernels began to caramelize on the grill.

Butter-Roasted Cauliflower
Excellent! Even better with butter than with olive oil.

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker
This was my first time making broth in the slow cooker. After three hours I removed the meat from the chicken and returned the bones to the slow cooker to continue cooking. I skipped the basil and added peppercorns, garlic, and fresh parsley. This recipe produced a full flavored, delicious broth without having to babysit the stove.
