About this Cook
I started cooking when I was 9 years old. I cooked pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, and corn for the first effort. My parents "said" it was good.
My favorite things to cook
I've always loved working with yeast. I especially enjoy making good breakfasts when the grandkids spend the night.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pancakes of all kinds, breakfast pizza, French dip, etc.
My cooking triumphs
German apple pancake - I took two of these to a condo association coffee and everyone loved them.
My cooking tragedies
I had a stroganoff recipe that I loved. I made it for my husband's godmother and it was a humbling experience. The rice was sloppy and the meat was tough and didn't have a lot of flavor. Haven't made it since!

Chicken Chimi in the Oven
I made this for Mother's Day. I don't like to eat out on the busiest day of the year, but don't want to spend the whole day cooking either. I prepared the filling on Saturday so that it was assembly/baking only required on Sunday. My kids had one bite and all I heard was raves and I want to make these! My son was trying to guess what the seasonings were. We all loved them. I did not add the refried beans. I had side dishes of pinto beans and Mexican rice. It is easy to make and so much better than restaurant chimichangas.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
I grew up on these! Now that I'm older, I think I may try them kicked up a notch. I'm planning to beat some eggs and dip the sandwich as if making French toast, cook about 3 minutes per side, and possibly add powdered sugar or syrup to serve.

Chai Tea Mix
I really like this recipe, but we "older" people have more diet restrictions, so I use decaf instant tea and a sugar substitute such as Splenda. I'm not sure how many carbs are eliminated with these changes.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
