About this Cook
Worked for 36 years as a business litigation paralegal. Raised 2 children and now have 3 wonderful grandkids. Retired just 5 months ago and am loving having time to cook, bake, needlework and all the other things I haven't had time to do for a long time.
My favorite things to cook
Soups - my cheesy potato and vegetable beef get rave reviews from all my family and friends. Also love to do crockpot roasts, chicken and dumplings, meatloaf, and stuffed pork chops.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are a big deal in my family and I absolutely love doing all the cooking and baking. I start baking cookies and candies around the 1st of December each year and give baskets of them to all my neighbors and friends.
My cooking triumphs
My soups have to be my triumphs - I've "played" with different ingredients through the years and they just seem to get better and better each time.
My cooking tragedies
I've never had much luck at making those big, beautiful cakes you see in the ads and on TV. They taste alright but are never that lovely to look at. Perhaps that's why my son prefers an apple pie every year for his birthday in lieu of a birthday cake!

Yummy Cheese Ball
Absolutely delicious and one of the simplest cheese balls I've ever made (and believe me, I've made a bunch during my 60 years of life!). I'm having a small dinner party tomorrow and I know everyone will love it. Thanks for posting it!
