Holding my beautiful grand daughter
About this Cook
I am a mom of 6 grown kids & grandma to 6 grandkids. I have always loved to cook, and spent most of my life making "kid friendly" meals. Over the past few years I have revved up our menus and am REALLY enjoying it now! My husband of 24 years is my cooking accomplice and we have a lot of fun! I think my kids for the most part have acquired my love of cooking (& eating!)also, which makes me very happy!
My favorite things to cook
I like making just about anything with fresh veggies in the summer! All kinds of fresh veggie pasta sauces, soups, breads (when in the mood), lol, I think I love cooking whatever I'm making at the time, for the most part.. Plus when you are sharing the experience with someone you love, well that helps too. ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was full Ukrainian and made some incredible dishes! So several of our family's comfort foods come from that region. My hubby's dad used to help out in the kitchen too, so I guess that is now a tradition in our family. Come to think of it, my daughter's husband cooks with her too.. So now that it's 3 generations, I think it's formally a tradition!
My cooking triumphs
Wow, lets see.. Anytime something turns out beautiful & delishous I feel triumphant. On a personal note; I think I've finally perfected my vegetarian spaghetti sauce! It took me years of experimenting, but I think I'm finally there! Whoo Hoo!! lol
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy... There have been a few.. lol If I could only make them into funny stories... Just know, that on more than one occation, we had pizza for dinner instead... lol

Cherry Pineapple Cabana Dump Cake
I've made this recipe many times (minus the nuts and coconut), 1/2 the butter - sliced thin, rather than melted. I use 2 cans of cherry pie filling rather than 1. And I serve it with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream on top. Quite sweet but very yummy. Kids love it! Next time I make it I am going to try topping it with the coconut and chopped pecans.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
This recipe is awesome! It is a HUGE hit with my family.My 22 year old son says this is his new favorite meal! I have made this exactly the same as the recipe calls for, and other times added more veggies. I always brush the bottom & top crusts with egg whites and add garlic. Next time I think I will not boil the chicken, and cook it with the onions and garlic for a bit deeper chicken flavor. All in all this is a very good recipe. I will continue making it for a long time to come!

The Best Mashed Potatoes
These potatoes are fantastic! I made them for thanksgiving and boy did they go over great! The only change I made was to add a little milk, just to thin them a bit, and then they were perfect! I will make these in place of my regular mashed potatoes from now on!
