About this Cook
I was retired for two years after working most of my life and I just went back to work.
My favorite things to cook
Most recently, Latino
My favorite family cooking traditions
Used to be Italian dishes and cranberry salad for my youngest son.
My cooking triumphs
My friend since 1949, who I consider to be one of the best cooks ever just told me, as she was eating a dinner I had cooked, that she couldn't cook like that.
My cooking tragedies
Braised turkey drumsticks that would not get tender, no matter what I did. The dog couldn't even eat them. Never could figure that one out.

Pumpkin Upside Down Cake
I have made this recipe at Thanksgiving and Christmas since the mid 80's instead of pumpkin pie. It is fantastic and you get a lot of pumpkin taste for the effort. I love to add broken nut meats especially walnuts. I hope others will try this recipe too. Thanks for sharing it.
