About this Cook
I love to cook and have been married for 47 years. Now in retirement, I like to try new recipes but prefer those without a ton of ingredients. I prefer to substitute and experiment with what I have on hand, using a recipe as a guide.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, casseroles are favorites. I enjoy cooking Italian and Mexican dishes. I also love to bake breads, quick breads, muffins, cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only traditional thing I make at this point is Butter Crunch Toffee at Christmas. I send it to all four adult children and their families, as well as give it as small gifts to neighbors and friends.

Apple Crisp II
This was delicious! My husband said it was the best crisp he's ever eaten. I served it with vanilla ice cream.

Impossibly Easy Breakfast Bake (Crowd Size)
I made this one morning for our family of 12 during our recent reunion. Everyone loved it! The only thing I did differently was to use turkey sausage and frozen O'Brien Potatoes that included onion and peppers. It was a big hit!

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup
This soup was very good and easy to put together. I made some changes to use what I had on hand. Used frozen hash browns, used 1 c. heavy cream and 1 c. milk. Substituted an additional 12oz milk for the evaporated milk. Put half the bacon in with all ingredients and sprinkled half over each serving, along with grated cheddar. Go lightly with salt if you are not using low sodium broth. Next time I will add 1 c. frozen or fresh corn near the end of cooking time. Definitely will make it with my changes again.
