About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Sweets and anything that makes my husband happy!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I started cooking for the family when we each turned 12. We had no actual traditions, but we would always cook together at thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
When I sent a Buttermilk pie to a reception since my husband and I couldn't make it, and the next week everyone was asking for the recipe. And any time my husband has seconds.
My cooking tragedies
A meatloaf recipie that I tried that used potatoes. My husband still makes jokes about how I am not allowed to cook meatloaf anymore.

Tortilla Soup II
This is exactly the recipe I was looking for. VERY authentic and delicious. I used a rotisserie chicken and added a can of canned whole tomatoes with the sauce and it made it perfect. Garnish with cheese, tortilla chips and avocado. Delish!!

Terry's Lemon Caper Chicken
This was tasty. I used panko bread crumbs, added salt and pepper to the chicken and pan fried in a mixture of olive oil and butter until golden brown and cooked through. I squeezed lemon juice onto the chicken along with the caper juice and served it with salad.

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary
This was yummy. I used my left over ham and ham bone from my Easter ham instead of bacon, used low sodium chicken broth and it was delicious. After one hour of cooking, I removed the ham bone and bay leaves and put it in the blender on puree. I then added it back to the pan, added another 1 1/2 cups of broth, 1/2 teaspoon of liquid smoke and one cup of diced ham and heated through. Very tasty and I'll make it again.
