About this Cook
I am married and own a small business. I love to eat so, it is important to me that what I cook makes the most of my time and energy. Good balance for a good life.
My favorite things to cook
One pot meals such as soups, stews, chili, salads and casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have prepared chili for almost everyone I know at some point in time. It takes a while but I love doing it. Making soup with my daddy is another fond memory.
My cooking triumphs
Chili, chili and chili.
My cooking tragedies
My cooking is not complicated and generally, I have an idea of what tastes good and can wing it when something doesn't go as planned. As a result, I've not had enough tragedies to remember. However, my husband did have to suffer through many a biscuit when we first married. lol.

Leftover Casserole
We loved this casserole. Only changes I made was to saute a chopped onion in a couple of tablespoons of butter, used egg noodles rather than macaroni and topped with crushed Ritz crackers sprayed with butter Pam. It was enough for 3 meals for my husband and me.

Coffee Nudge
This is one of my favorite "dessert" drinks and can be quite special for company prepared tableside. First, run a little lemon around the rim of a brandy snifter that will take the heat. Dip the rim in sugar; pour in the brandy and liqueurs; set aflame so that the sugar is melted around the top of the glass; pour in coffee and top with whipped cream.

Pork Chops German Style
This is a recipe that has been in my family for many years. My mother-in-law had a German background but lived in Louisiana the first part of her marriage. She said they "passed the mustard" over the pork chops. Sometimes, I add an extra can of chicken with rice soup so that there will be plenty of "gravy" and serve with rice. So good!
