About this Cook
I've enjoyed cooking since I worked in a restaurant in my teens.
My favorite things to cook
Breads of all types. I'm also beer brewer - guess I enjoy yeasts and grains. BBQ and grilling.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A French bread made with beer and an old salt risin' bread recipe passed to me by my father. We also have a Thanksgiving tradition of scalloped peanuts and onions and an interesting sweet potato casserole that we never fail to fix.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
This recipe has good flavor and easy but to call it stroganoff is a huge stretch. No mushrooms? No sour cream? OK maybe cream cheese substitutes for it - maybe or maybe not! No paprika? No onions? Margarine - yuck! If stroganoff taste is what you are after, there are far better choices out there.

Taco Seasoning I
Easy, uses spices in the pantry, and does the job tastefully. I always buy taco seasoning (and nearly all my seasonings) from a farmers' mkt and it is way cheaper than the prepackaged stuff. This is great when I run out or just want to make my own.

Crisp Marinated Cucumbers
An excellent recipe that can be made zippier with just an easy change. In a saucepan on stovetop or glass measuring cup in microwave warm the vinegar, sugar, and salt stirring until everything is dissolved. As it cools, add up to about one teaspoon of mixed pickling spice in an infuser (or leave it loose if desired). When cooled completely dunk the infuser several time to extract flavor and remove. Stir in the celery seed and pour over the cucumbers and onions. Chill and enjoy.
