About this Cook
I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and nurse. I love everything old, and live in a historical home in a logging community in the Cascades.
My favorite things to cook
Seasonal cooking using fresh produce from the farmers markets.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have no other family members living near us and I never wanted my children to grow up feeling holidays weren't special. I make traditional dishes for all holidays and always try to make it just as special as if we were entertaining a crowd.
My cooking triumphs
My children and husband think I'm a great cook!
My cooking tragedies
Peanut brittle that boiled over onto my new stove and stuck as hard as cement. Just the memory of that stuck mess makes me cringe.

Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie
This was wonderful. You do need to refrigerate it so it will "set". I made it for company and was so worried it wouldn't ever set. It did, and they all loved it.
