About this Cook
I am 63 years old and am married to a wonderful man, who is a Pharmacist and also likes to cook, but usually doesn't have time. When I cook, he cleans, so I love that. My husband has alot of food allergies, eggs wheat, and all presertaves that are in so many things. So I have to be a very careful shopper. I buy organic when possible. And I am learning recipes for cakes etc. made with different kinds of flours other than wheat. and egg replacement.We have 8 children, and 24 grand children so far. And are active in our local church. I love to sing and play piano. Since my husband plays gutiar, we often play together. We have fun with that. I love spending time with my grandchildren. They are so great!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook in my crock pot. From soups to stews, to main dishes, such as chicken. I think stir fries are about my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my children were home, we had hambuger night, taco night, spaghatti night. Not alway every week but those were their favorites, that were enjoyed frequently
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned how to make a yummy apple pie.
My cooking tragedies
I have had so many cook tradgies over the years it 's hard to choose. The most embarrsing was when we had company for dinner and when I served the chicken it was rare. Needless to say it went in the micorwave for a bit. It didn't ruin the meal, but I was horribly embarresed.

Fresh Tomato Salsa
This was easy to preapre, and delicious. I did make a few changes to the reecipe. I knew that 5 serrano chiles would make it to hot for us, so I cut down on those. I added jalapinoes intead of the serranos. Also added in avacoda and garlic
