About this Cook
Wife for 22 years, three gorgeous children (I'm not exaggerating!), a darling dog, numerous fish and a Sabine Map turtle. I came from a fairly large family, where my parents regularly made do with little and taught me to do likewise. Compulsive reader and writer.
My favorite things to cook
I like baking, but I'm still looking for perfect recipes--not satisfied with 90 percent of bread machine recipes! I love roasting, pressure cooking, and I love crock-pots-- it's perfect: dump stuff in a pot and leave it alone all day!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fudge. Yeah. Definitely fudge. Baking bread was a family event when I was very young. Twice-baked potatoes on Christmas Day.
My cooking triumphs
I make the most fabulous pot roast, and lately I've been making darn good scones.
My cooking tragedies
When my pressure cooker blew its rubber valve. Still finding splatter from that after five years. And once I made lemon-garlic chicken in the crock-pot, but that stuff was nasty.

Hungarian Cucumber Salad
I've never really been a fan of cucumber salads, but I really do like cucumber. (Normally I put them on a platter as part of the crudites, or slice them in tossed green salad.) But my husband does like cuke salad, and his health demands that he eat a lot more vegetables, so I tried this for dinner this evening. It was a big hit! Son's girlfriend loved the dill, hubby had thirds, and once I found the right balance of salt to vinegar, I had seconds! Well done, and thanks for sharing it!

Maple Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes
I've made this about 5x since I first saw it. I always double it. I don't generally have chicken tenderloins, so I cut regular boneless-skinless breasts into large chunks. One of my daughters suggested adding pecan pieces to the maple, but I don't know how that will go with the onion. One time I started it before realizing we didn't have maple syrup, so I used butter, brown sugar, and a little water. It was still yummy. It's so good. We have a big family meeting tonight, and I'm making this because everyone loves it and it puts us all in a good mood! Thanks for a good 'un!

Moroccan Tagine
We love this. I'm making it again tonight. My kids don't like ethnic food, really, so the fact that they love this is kind of amazing. Thanks so much!
