About this Cook
I'm a writer who walks Labrador retrievers to stretch her advances after happily leaving the world of publishing. I try to stick to a strict weighed & measured food plan with no sugar & no flour -- not always successfully but I keep trying anyway.
My favorite things to cook
Having said I try to avoid sugar & flour, I'm a terrific baker. My specialties, however, have become vegetables. Not vegetarian: vegetables. When I'm adhering to my food plan, I eat many, many vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, especially roll-out sugar cookies. Christmas tea breads as gifts. Mincemeat pies at Thanksgiving & Christmas, with venison mincemeat. We owned an orchard for many years so we canned a lot of fruit, made jams & pies.

Cornbread Stuffing Southern Style
Just a note to say it fabulous in the crockpot as well. A big hit at Thanksgiving.

Easy Mexican Casserole
I make this for my 94-year-old father whenever I visit him, at his request, & it's my fall-back casserole for any occasion that asks for some jolliness. I often substitute chicken breasts for hamburger, black beans for chili beans, & go heavier on olives, green onions & tomatoes. It's a great basic recipe to play with!

Czech Stuffed Green Peppers
The pepper filling needs a tad more salt but the sauce makes this unusual and satisfying.
