About this Cook
I started cooking when I was very young out of necessity. Today my grown daughter thinks I have the answers to all that is food. She lives in Texas and calls me frequently with cooking questions. I love that we have bonded on this level.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, chicken dishes and homemade sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making everything from scratch. One thing my mother was good at was cooking. and I love to see people enjoying my food.
My cooking triumphs
I was ecstatic to be able to feed my German born husband Schnitzel. Also homemade chicken pot pie. I even started trying homemade breads. Nothing smells as good as bread baking.
My cooking tragedies
Crock pot Beef Stroganoff. I don't really care for this But my husband is German and really loves this.

Mexican Rice II
Made this last night and my husband said it was identical to restaurant version! Only thing I did differently was omitting chopped onion and just used dried minced. I figured they would have time to soften and they did. Good recipe!

Broccoli Rice Casserole
Here's my take on this recipe. Yes it is kind of bland but it is creamy, cheesy goodness! I have been making this recipe for years and I gotta say I don't understand the necessity of all the steps.I make this recipe with 2 cans cream of chicken, omit the mushroom. I omit celery and I do saute the onions. Now here is where I deviate from the recipe.After sauteing the onions, I add everything together in a big bowl and mix(I don't even cook the rice)I then pour the mixture into greased 9 x 13 pan and cook for 15 minutes. I stir the casserole and then bake another 15-25 minutes. Comes out perfect each time, lots easier and I have had people complain I never make enough! P.S. I do thaw the broccoli before adding to the recipe.

Amish White Bread
I have been dying to try my hand at bread making and this recipe is exactly what I was looking for! Easy and delicious! I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and 5 cups of bread flour and it was exactly what I wanted! Mine didn't rise above the pans though and after reading more reviews I will be using 2 tbsp of yeast from now on. Love, love this recipe! My house smells amazing and my daughter couldn't stop eating it! Fluffy deliciousness! Thanks for sharing!
