About this Cook
I am 46 years old and i really started cooking when my first child was born. That was 10 years ago and she now has a younger brother, who is 8. My husband did NOT marry me for my cooking, but he says that i have "come a long way" and " who are you? My wife doesn't cook like this!" I work part time as a physicians assistant and love my job.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes and i dabble in everything, grilling, baking, broiling, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think my favorite things are baking the recipes that are from my grandmother. She had alot of pennsylvania dutch recipes and when i make them, i think of her.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that my family loves to eat and thinks tastes good is triumph for me!!
My cooking tragedies
I have alot of tragedies, but in general, i find chicken hard because i just can't judge when it is cooked through and end up sticking it back in the oven or grill to finish. I can't make a good waffle to save my life!

Apricot Pork Chops
Husband liked it, kids thought ok, but didn't eat too much. I had to make my own Russian dressing, and only had 1/2 packet onion soup mix and 1/2 amount of apricot preserve to make recipe. I liked it and saving recipe for future use. Nice to know I can replace pork with chicken. I think would work well in crockpot.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa
I have been making this (minus the jalapeno) for a couple of years now. Very tasty and goes great on fish or chicken!!

Grilled Pineapple Slices
This was ok, cooked it after making a pineapple glaze for chicken. I may try it again, but it was average.
