About this Cook
I am the mother of 3 daughters and the wife of a wonderful man who loves my cooking and compliments it all the time.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have favorites of many things but I love to cook dinner foods. I used to love to bake when I first started cooking but found the thrill in the creativity of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are creating traditions as we go. Our favorite and most exciting time of year is the fall and winter. We love the foods that are associtated with it.
My cooking triumphs
Making foods that my family loves. I love to try new foods all the time. Especially new twists on favorites. My greatest moment came when my girls were asked to write down their favorite foods that I make. Their list only took ten minutes and was a page and a half long. While other momm's kids struggled to find more than one or two! I have just mastered or at least tamed cooking rice! (2008) It has taken 20+ years for me to be able to say that and now I can hold my head up when I serve it.
My cooking tragedies
When I was young and tried to bake sugar cookies and they all ran together and were full of holes, I hadn't added the baking powder. I am notoriously bad (self imposed) at making rice (not any more!!) and cooking a steak. I can season a steak well but I always over cook it.

Sarah's Applesauce
I have been wanting to make applesauce for ages but always thought it too time consuming. But when I actually looked into it I of course realized I was wrong. I also found that there were as many ways to make it as there were recipes. I chose this recipe because it used the simplest of ingredients and in my humble opinion applesauce should be simple. I had about 2 dozen or so apples that needed to find a new purpose so I quadrupled the recipe except for the sugar as I was using my two favorite kinds, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious, which are sweet on their own. I only added a little under 3/4c sugar. Well it turned out perfect! By the time it cooled enough to be jarred my daughters had eaten a quarter of it. Thanks for the best recipe. Will be making this many times in the future.

Shrimp Scampi Bake
This is a very simple and quick recipe. I have been making shrimp scampi for decades and have never added Dijon before. I rarely added mustard to any recipes that call for it in unexpected places because for my personal taste it off putting and overwhelming, but being it was Dijon and it was scampi and I was looking for something a bit different I gave it a go and it was great! It adds just a hint of something extra not especially distinctive but noticeable. I also added white wine as others mentioned and because it is scampi. We are garlic lovers in this house so I add without measure just by judgement. This was a great recipe and because it all was basically in the oven I didn't have to baby-sit the pan while doing other things which is a true blessing for a person with a back a condition which only allows for short periods of standing. Thanks this will probably be my new standard scampi recipe!
