About this Cook
I grew up in the North eating many German dishes that had been handed down through the generations. Now I live in the South and I am learning the different cuisines here. I always like to bring a little of the German to the south because you just can't find a good German bratwurst with kraut here.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things and will always bring something new to cookouts and gatherings. If it doesn't turn out and no one likes it, then I just don't make it again and I move on to the next thing. My family are wonderful guinea pigs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving...it's a great pot luck.
My cooking triumphs
Preparing a recipe of escalloped corn that my ex-husbands grandmother had given me a recipe for...that was her dish for decades. When she was not able to make it anymore it was left to me. She said it tasted as good as hers...which was her seal of approval.
My cooking tragedies
I was preparing a large pot roast for my family and my in-laws. I started it in the slow cooker late the night before on medium. In the morning I forgot to turn it to low/warm for the remainder of the day and when I got home it was so dried out and all the juices had simmered away. You could have used the meat as a door stop and the potatoes as hockey pucks.

Grilled Romaine
I've made this a number of times. I use Italian dressing brushed on before grilling. I fry up some bacon real crisp and dice up some tomatoes or halve cherry or grape tomatoes and saute them in the bacon grease. When the lettuce is done, throw the bacon and tomato on the top. Drizzle a little more Italian dressing over the top and it's a BLT grilled salad!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
I made a batch with cranberries and a batch with raisins. By far the best oatmeal cookies I've had. Love the spice in them!

Banana Sour Cream Bread
5 stars and over 3000 reviews can't lie. I have made this for a few years in a row now for the holidays and in mass quantities. Turns out perfect every time. I put a crumble on the top and it turns out absolutely delicious!
