About this Cook
I married my high school sweetheart 36 yrs ago. We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren(so far). The most recent arrivals were twin grandsons. So fun!!. We have raised our family on our farm. I have been a registered nurse for 37 yrs. and hope to retire in a few years. We love to travel and visit our kids, in Colorado, Boston and Chicago. I enjoy photography,scrapbooking, and sewing.
My favorite things to cook
I think my most favorite thing to cook is dessert, including pies, cookies and anything else that is yummy and rich!! And in the winter, I love to make soups-and try new soup recipes on allrecipes. I also enjoy slow cooker recipes. There is nothing better than coming home from a long day and having the aroma of dinner waiting for you!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught me how to make my first pie-it was peach and very good actually. I learned how to make pie crust, and to this day, I have rarely bought a pie crust. When Mom taught me to make cookies, she said always make 2 or 3 "testers" at first to see if you need to add more flour. I think teaching your children to cook is very important. It is a great time to be together and enjoy the yummy food at the end.
My cooking triumphs
I would consider my homemade pies my specialty. The way to your man's heart?-bake him a pie!!
My cooking tragedies
Why is it when you have to take something somewhere, it sometimes doesn't turn out like it usually does????

Key Lime Pie VII
Delicious!! I will cut back on line juice (Nellie and Joe's Key West lime juice) next time. I baked it for 15 minutes. Instead of 3 cups of Eagle Brand milk I used two cans. My husband loved it. I served with a little cool whip. Fabulous dessert if you want to impress someone without all the work!!
