About this Cook
We are empty nesters - where did the time go?
My favorite things to cook
Enjoy the challenge of finding recipes with the fewest ingredients that produce a WOW factor. Strive for low fat, carb and calorie with great taste.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family celebrations most often include a beef tenderloin on the grill - even in the dead of our northern winters.
My cooking triumphs
All my friends adore my green salads - have to take wherever I go! I seldom have a restaurant salad as good as mine...
My cooking tragedies
Since the kids are grown - most baking. I really believe if your heart is not in it, it just won't turn out. A couple Christmases ago I made sure all the ingredients were fresh from the store - none of my attempts turned out. If I am forced into taking a dessert, it will have to be store bought!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
Easy, quick & good. Works well with raw or cooked chicken. Ingredients on hand. Thanks. Lots of good ideas from other reviewers also.

Pasta Salad on a Stick
I have made this recipe. One hint: cook pasta as directed. Marinate several hours (up to overnight) in Italian dressing. Also, add artichokes to marinade if purchased plain). Thread as directed.

Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad
With addition of onion & frozen peas, this is great. Also 1 T dry ranch instead of Italian dressing. I served with uncut grape tomatoes.
