About this Cook
I am a stay-at-home mom and live on a hobby farm with my family. We have ponies, chickens, barn cats, dogs and a few fish. My passions are doing bible studies and quilting.
My favorite things to cook
I used to be more of a gourmet cook until the kids came along. Now I do lots of casseroles and soups. I still love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Weekend breakfasts. We like to have either fresh buttermilk pancakes or waffles. I keep buttermilk on hand for those items plus buttermilk biscuits, pie and salad dressings.
My cooking triumphs
When I was still single I had a waiting list of people waiting to be invited to my dinner parties. I had one every third Friday evening. It was alot of fun.
My cooking tragedies
I started cooking the entire family dinner when I was 7. There were 6 of us. Once when I was making meatloaf using the recipe on the back of the oatmeal box I got confused with the recipe for oatmeal cookies and put brown sugar in it. It was very sweet! Also when I was 7 I was making scalloped corn and needed 1/8 tsp of pepper. I didn't know my fractions yet so I asked my mom but misunderstood her and used 1/2 and a 1/4 tsp of pepper; needless to say it was very peppery!

French Baguettes
I make this bread quite often without a breadmaker. It is quick and easy. My family loves it no matter whether I do a wash of egg yolk, egg white or no wash at all. It is just soft and delicious!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs
These were great! No more bottled spaghetti sauce for us. I always double this entire recipe so that we will have leftovers.

World's Best Potato Salad
I've never been a potato salad fan but this recipe is great. It combines just the right amount of sweet and sour and it's perfect, in fact I made a double batch and I'm so glad I did. Thanks for sharing.
