About this Cook
I am a nurse , but have been disabled for about 15 years. I have one disabled son. before being disablesd I loved to cook, that didn't change. I just learned to modify recipes so that they would be easy to make. I am always looking for new cooking gadgets to make cooking easier. My most recent purchase was a modern pressure cooker!
My favorite things to cook
fish, lamb, salsads, and of course desserts. Always trying to make them healthier that when I grew up. Whole grains, lots of legume (diabetes, metabolic syndrome) and love to bake. most recently have added WheyLow to my baking strategy with wonderful succes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. We had that for every holiday meal and special occasions. My Dad's best meal. I didn't learn to cook from him, but in spite of him!! But what I did learn from him was to have fun and that cooking is not an exact science (though baking is more so and that became my forte).
My cooking triumphs
Several Blue Ribbons at the Minnesota State Fair (and a red and yellow, too_ Put the first no sugar jam recipe ever at the fair and won a Blue Ribbon!! Also specialty recipes for various specialty diets. My favorite? English Trifle at a British food Contest which won first prize!!
My cooking tragedies
So many how do you count them? Bread has been the worst. Still not very good at it even with a bread machine.

Russian Beet and Potato Salad
Lovely recipe> That being said, I made a couple of modifications: Roasted the veggies in the oven instead of boiling. Also, I have a ods and ends pickle mix that I keep up and I used about 1/4 cup of those--very nice. Also a few slices of cucumber tossed in to freshen. Thanks for a great base recipe to work from.

Orange Banana Smoothie
Great but like others said, a little sweet for me. So I reduced the sugar to about 2 tbsp. I also foroze the banana in chunks and always have milk frozen in cubes. Then I don't have to water down a smoothie using ice cubes--frozen bananas and milk ice cubes do the trick. Also, plain yogurt for me. I first came across a version of this in German Class in High School. We were having a German food day. One of the girls was German and brought her favorite food. simply mil and oranges blended together. WE all thought it would be awful, but it was delicious. We never know.

Mincemeat Cake
I am always looking for mincemeat recipes. I love the boxed mincemeat because there is no HFCS. This is a great recipe. Add this ti my holiday rotation of sweets. I made an applesauce glaze for this cake instead of the caramel frosting. a citrus glaze would be nice as well. Thanks
