About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is anything with beef and potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
For me everyone asks me to make my pasta salad and my Chicago style deep dish pizza and for my husband EVERYONE wants him to make his pulled pork. Recently this summer we were asked to cater a funeral, he made 10 butts at once. People were asking about the pork long after the funeral. We had strangers asking how they could get some.
My cooking tragedies
My first tragedy was 30 years ago I was about ten. I wanted to make tacos and I forgot to drain the meat. Everyone loves to remind me of this lapse… ha-ha

Eggplant Sandwiches
This is becoming a house favorite even for our two year old and four year old. It is quick and easy. Just remember to cut a few hours before and put salt and remove excess moisture before broiling. This last time I was short on ingredients. So instead I used equal parts of mayo, sour cream and plain yogurt. I than mixed it with garlic powder, dry basil, and dried mint. It was delish! It is a great way to cut some meat in our diet and we get so full!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
This was by far the best frosting I have ever had!! Let me start by saying I am not a cake or frosting maker this was my first go at this type of frosting. I ended up tripling the recipe because other reviews said one batch barely covered a batch of cupcakes. That is so not true! I generously frosted two nine inch cakes (stacked) and one 9x13 pan and still had leftovers. I think what may have yielded a much fluffier frosting was leaving the stand mixer run for longer (I had a distraction). I brought them over to my in-laws for a party and EVERYONE was in love with this frosting. It is sweet and rich but it really made a cake from a box (Pillsbury) taste like it was from scratch.

Roasted Easter Ham
I saw this recipe and thought GREAT no cloves! I mixed it all together and thought it tasted great, but then I wanted to add my own flair. I did as many others here did I used Spicy Mustard in place of the yellow mustard. I also added 2 tsp garlic powder, and about ¼ cup of horseradish. It was a hit, everyone loved it. I used a 10 pound ham spread it all around baked it tented with tin foil. The last 30 minutes I took off the tinfoil and it got a nice crust. The only down side was the color of the mixture was pea soup green. Today I am using the left over ham to make potato soup.
