About this Cook
I have enjoyed cooking for many years. My favorite dishes are family favorites, but I love to find and try new recipes. I am willing to try most anything that sounds good, but have spent hours on some recipes that were in no way worth it...
My favorite things to cook
My favortie dishes are dinner foods. I am not into baking only because I and my family do not need the calories.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Because we are a step family, cooking traditions have taken on heightened importance. Also, because our family members live all over the country, we zero in on certain favorites when we get together. Both of my step-daughters are great cooks; one loves to try new recipes like I do and the other makes wonderful "earthy" dishes.
My cooking triumphs
I just generally have a knack for good timing and proper seasoning without tasting (it ruins the delight of the meal for me!). As a side note, I won the Betty Crocker Award when a senior in high school ('70). Try as I might, I was unable to give it back and had to accept the award at graduation! I was totally embarrassed...
My cooking tragedies
When I was a newlywed I made baking powder biscuits with baking soda--and I stuffed a chicken with my Mom's dressing recipe minus the water!

Anthony's Lime Chicken with Pasta
With a few changes, my husband and I LOVED it! Now remember I am in a lime phase... I omitted the breading as many suggested and used fresh tomatoes. Also, I don't think the type pasta really matters, but dressing it first according to the recipe was a plus. We will definitely make it again and again.

Boston Baked Beans
This is a superb recipe! I made them in a crock pot with only half the brown sugar and took the cover off for the last couple of hours to reduce the liquid. Yummy! I'll make them again and again!

Beef Stroganoff III
Wonderful, although I changed it a bit. I used scraps from a beef tenderloin so I cooked the filet briefly, then removed it from the pan until the finish. Also, I used fresh mushrooms and just added them when the onions were added. The whole dish was done from start to finish in about 12 minutes. Yummy!
