About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I'm usually the one to make the birthday cakes for our family dinners.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make a Salmon Chowder that has been handed down. My grandmother, my mother and I all have made this soup. I also make a pudding based Pineapple Salad that has been handed from my grandmother. Handed down from my other grandmother, I make Graham Cracker Pudding, chocolate and vanilla pudding with layers of graham crackers.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking Thanksgiving dinner for twenty people at the age of 18. My mother had just had surgery the week before and I'm the oldest, so away I went!!
My cooking tragedies
Same Thanksgiving dinner! Everything turned out, except I forgot to add the sugar to the apple pie!!! We just lifted up the top crust and sprinkled it on. Crunchy but it worked.

Jalapeno Popper Spread
I've made this dip twice in the last three days!! Once for my family at home and once for work. It's wonderful, with just the right amount of heat. I will definitely make it again!!!

Chicken Pot Pie I
Had this for dinner last night and left overs for lunch today!! Wonderful!! We did add chopped onion to it. With 20 minutes left on the baking, we threw some frozen biscuits into the oven -- same temperature -- and had a wonderful dinner! Will definitely make this again!

Classic Macaroni Salad
Made this last night! Easy to make. My 3-year-old niece "helped" me with mixing the dressing and putting the vegetables into the bowl. Definitely would make it again. It's a nice change from "regular" macaroni salad.
