About this Cook
I'm a work from home mother, wife and grandmother. Cooking has always been fun and exciting for me. I love to golf but would probably rather be in the kitchen trying a new recipe or coming up with my own concoction. We don't eat out that much because I would rather cook it myself. I decorate cakes, but not to sell, just for family and friends. To much mess to clean up.
My favorite things to cook
I love all different kinds of foods (if they are prepared right). My favorite is Italian.I have been an avid cook for over 30 years and prepare all different kinds of foods, from down home comfort foods to gourmet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family really doesn't have a lot of traditions. We are very spontaneous people who like to mix things up a bit.
My cooking triumphs
I recently won the grand prize( a dining room set)for my Mexican Stuffed peppers. My picture and bio were printed in our newspaper along with the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married we had my husband boss and his family over for Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey was beautiful , but as my husband was carving it(at the table mind you) he pulled out a bag of innards!! The turkey had 2 bags inside!! I wanted to crawl under the table but everyone else had a good laugh and enjoyed the dinner.

Swiss Chicken Casserole I
Moist,easy and delicous. I mixed soup with a half can of milk and white wine in equal parts. I used pepper jack cheese instead of swiss. Next time i'm going to add a can of green chili peppers to cream of chicken soup to add some kick. Hubby loved it.

Coconut (Haupia) and Chocolate Pie
OMG! Rich and decadent. My husband said it tasted like a very expensive gourmet chocolate cream pie. Only complaint was I couldn't taste coconut. Next time i will add coconut extract.Can't wait to make this for our Easter family dinner.
