Those of you who have been following my blog know that I self published a cook book in 2009. When I was compiling those recipes I could not find the cook book from the church in my home town. I was cleaning out boxes in the garage recently and finally found that book. I'll feature some of the recipes I've enjoyed in the past from the first cook book that has my recipes in it.

Rosey Spring Salad

4 cups diced rhubarb
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
2 , 3 oz. packages of strawberry gelatin
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 cup slice strawberries

Combine rhubarb, water and sugar in a 2 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Lower to a simmer and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Place gelatin in a mixing bowl. Pour undrained cooked rhubarb over gelatin, stirring until dissolved. Add orange juice and peel. Chill 1 to2 hours until syrupy and fold in strawberry slices. Pour into lightly oiled 6 cup mold. Chill until set, at least another 2 hours. Serves 8.

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
