About this Cook
I am a homeschooling mom with 1 child still at home. I also have 5 precious grandchildren -- 4 boys and 1 girl. My favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, card making, and needlework.
My favorite things to cook
I love converting recipes to healthier versions by substituting whole foods. I love to cook almost anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I can, I make a dozen or so varieties of cookies for family and to give as gifts. My family has come to depend on my homemade breads as a staple in our home.
My cooking triumphs
My great triumph was catering my daughter's wedding. I prepared food for 150 which included chicken salad swans, meatballs, and chocolate dipped strawberry trees to name a few items served. We even had an ice sculpture!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made fried chicken I used an egg batter and forgot to add the flour! It was dreadful.

Beefy Cheesy Pasta
I was a little skeptical about the combination of cheese, soy sauce and milk, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was really a simple, tasty, quick to fix family meal. I used mozzarella cheese -- don't like American. I will keep this recipe handy for a last minute meal.

Quiche Lorraine I
This is a delicious recipe. Even though I didn't have cream, I was able to use whole milk and still have it come out very yummy. I listened to the other reviewers and reduced the milk to 1 1/2 cups. I will definitely make this again.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Very good recipes that I will make again. I followed the recipe but substituted freshly ground soft wheat (we like the nutrition and texture). I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars.
