To me the whole point of the Ambassador program is to try new products and share the ones that work well.  Some products excite me more than others.  Reynolds is one of those brands that I can happily endorse.  From childhood I can recall that pink and blue box of Reynolds foil in my G'ma's… MORE

About this Cook
I am a mother, grandmother, great grandmother by marriage and great aunt. My empty nest seems full most of the time and they all are ready to eat at any moment. I am busier now than I ever imagined once I retired. I now manage our parish friendship kitchen and help in the food bank. Part of what I love most is helping our clients learn to eat nutritiously on their very meager budgets and Allrecipes has been an invaluable tool.
My favorite things to cook
I love anything i can make from scratch, i like to bake breads, rolls, cookies, cobblers, pies. I like to make large dinners too and entertain frequently. I love trying new recipes out on friends and family. Sunday brunch has become a family focal point and if something new doesn't appear they act deprived.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I didn't really grow up with any. Neither my mother or grandmother were great cooks. I learned to cook by trial and error on my own. But I married into a family of excellent cooks who went all out for holidays. All of my children cook well and we work well together preparing holiday meals.
My cooking triumphs
My first successful yeast bread. I spent years being terrified of yeast. The first time my MIL complimented me on a meal I felt like I had won an Emmy.
My cooking tragedies
My early years of cooking were one fiasco after another. I could actually cook fairly well, but had no idea when to start things so they all were ready at the same time. Some meals took whole evenings. My poor husband never once complained, although he did once mention he hoped dinner would be over before it was time for breakfast.

Sriracha Pickled Eggs
I'm generally not a fan of pickled eggs but these may have made me a convert. I used them in place of plain boiled eggs in a Chef Salad and they added just enough flavor to be interesting. I like the idea of egg salad too.

New Red Potato Salad
Classic potato salad in our family with 2 small changes. I omit the milk and add 2 tbs Dijon mustard. To get the full flavor I suggest making this the day before and letting the flavors ripen overnight.

Polish Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
I made this for a ladies luncheon and it was a huge success! I used lite sour cream and 1/2 low fat cream cheese and 1/2 part skim ricotta in an effort to lower the guilt factor. I was working against time so I put all the cake in the pan and spread it with wet hands then added the cheese and the topping. I did add a tsp of vanilla to the cheese mixture. I can see so many variations this will surely be made again. I suggest serving this either slightly warmed or a room temperature to get the full benefit of the subtle flavors. Thanks SAXYBONE, this is a keeper!
