About this Cook
I love to cook. I usually make a huge mess that I hate to clean up. I hardly ever cook out of a box, I like to make everything fresh and from scratch. I try, when I have time, to can and freeze veggies in the fall to use through out the winter.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook big meals for family. I have some good enchilada recipes and I like to make chili rellanos. I also have a really good recipe for ribs that everyone likes, and I get requests for lasagna and home made chicken and noodles. I love to cook anything that everyone likes eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any real cooking traditions, however my Mother and Grandmother both used to can a lot. Now I have my own garden and can tomatos and green beans with my girls. We also freeze other veggies to have for the winter. I never got to can with my Grandmother I just remember always seeing the jars and boxes. But, after school would start in the fall my Mom would start canning and can remember coming home and she would save the tomatos and beets for me to "slip". I used to love that. Now my daughter likes to peel the tomatos for me.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad
I love this salad. I pretty much followed the recipe. I used leftover penne pasta and didn't have any olives to add and it was still vary good. I love the tasts of the fresh basil. I planted an herb garden this summer and have been looking for recipes to use them in and this was great. I used my first 2 ripe tomatoes also. Wonderful, definately a keeper!

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder
Excellent recipe, my husband loves this stuff. I also add 1 teaspoon of chili powder and a can of kidney beans. Makes a great meal! Leftovers are good also.

Cream Cheese Pickles
I have been making these for years! They are a little time consuming, I think I eat more than I get made, but well worth it! I use the thin sliced deli meat in the little packages, usually in Corned Beef or Pestrami, but any lunch meat works well.
