About this Cook
I have a husband and two teens. I am very lucky to live in an area with 4 definite seasons! I enjoy them all in some way or another. I have just recently become interested in cooking, but have always enjoyed baking.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have favorite things to cook, but I have favorite things to eat! I cook/eat most anything, as long as its not on the spicy(hot) side.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions were cooking with my Grandma, since she never measured a thing (a handful of this, pinch of this, dash of that). No wonder I thought I was kind of recipe illiterate for so long!
My cooking triumphs
I just made my first holiday meal for in-laws and my parents, along with my own family. It was good, and more importantly, I don't think anyone got sick!
My cooking tragedies
I have many cooking tragedies, dating way back to when I was first married. I actually burned spaghetti noodles while boiling them, let them boil dry. There's way to many to share them all:o

Salmon Patties I
Very good! I only used about a tablespoon of bread crumbs as I could tell the mixture would be too dry to form patties otherwise. I liked it with lemon juice squeezed over the patties.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
Couldn't stop eating this! I used leftover turkey and a bag of frozen veggies. I used the No Roll Pie Crust, (half whole wheat flour, coconut oil), it was perfect!

Berdean's Cube Steak
First let me say- not a fan of cube steak. In the past I would make it for family and eat something else. However, this recipe made it taste pretty good. Still not a fan of the texture, but it was more tender than I have had in the past. I had no beef bouillon so just used beef broth.
