About this Cook
I'm an empty-nest mom and wife who is enjoying time with her hubby again. We are 50+ and enjoying a slower pace life as we are semi-retired. We moved to a lake and I am enjoying being home more and expanding my hobbies in areas like cooking, crafts and reading.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new recipes and try to keep my meals light and healthy. Desserts (especially chocolate) are always a favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A few favorites are chicken pot pie, Christmas/Easter morning casserole and coffeecake, and layered dip. We all recently discovered coconut prawns so a new favorite has been added to the menu.
My cooking triumphs
Now that I'm home more I am having a lot of fun trying new recipes and cooking techniques. I've tried ingredients I'd never even heard of before and discovering that I AM a very good cook! has been a very valuable tool for me and is the first place I go to find a new recipe.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at a rotisserie chicken on the barbecue resulted in a large fire in the drip pan and a very blackened chicken! I refused to give up and the next night had a wonderfully juicy chicken for dinner. The trick I needed was to add an inch of water to the drip pan and to turn the heat down a little lower. Be sure to try the Rotisserie Chicken recipe on this site. It's fantastic!

Sweet Dinner Rolls
Bob loved them. Cooked great in 15 minutes. I made 12 but should have made 15 - some were too big. Cooked them in muffin pans because my 9x13 was not available. Try next time.

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole
I salted and then squeezed water out of the zucchini before mixing the ingredients together and it turned out great. All our guests thought it was very good.
