About this Cook
Born and raised in Oklahoma. Married to a hometown boy for 35 years. We have one married son and two 14 year old labs. I recently retired and have been cooking up a storm. I've gathered most of the new recipes from allrecipes. This is a great web site.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Tiki Marsala, Bread, Pork Loins (experimenting with different marindaed), Piroskis (I love trying different meat mixtures) and cookies of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a typical Thanksgiving dinner. I have made the same cornbread stuffing for years. The recipe was given to me by my mother who got it from my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook I feel like I have triumphed. It's so rewarding to hear the praise from my husband and family.
My cooking tragedies
Years ago I attempted to make a cheese soup. Somehow it turned into a yellow rubber frisbee type of object. We had a really good laugh at that one.

Flatlander Chili
Really like this recipe. I've grown up making chili and I always cooked the onions, celery and bell pepper until it was tender before adding the rest. In the fall it's fun to roast a hatch pepper and peel it and dump it into the chili. It doesn't increase the heat that much. I also experiment with different chili powders. We really like chipotle chile flavor. I love club crackers in my chili and my husband says no way. Well we both can eat chili for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great recipe. We always have cornbread with lots of honey with our chili. Thanks.

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad
My Husband, Son and DIL all raved about this recipe. I even got a "This is the best chicken salad I have ever had". I agree it was great made just as it was written. I cheated a little by using a store bought rot. chicken. Oh well. This was fast and easy. I served it with big croissants from Sam's bakery. Thank you for giving us this recipe.

Cotechino and Braised Beans
Thank you Chef John. I was looking for something different to do with my black eye peas on New Years day and found this recipe. I added 1/2 package of 15 bean soup and the rest of the black eye peas. It was delicious. It was a hit.. who knew! Thanks again. Oh, I found the cotechino at a little gourmet spice in Oklahoma City. It was wrapped the same way.
