About this Cook
I am a retired public school art teacher.I taught art for 35yrs.Married mother of three sons,grandmother to six.
My favorite things to cook
Family and friends always seem to enjoy my cooking.I make a wonderful NY cheesecake , egg rolls, fried rice,stir fry veggies,beef strongonoff,artichoke chicken,lasagna and love to try new things.
My cooking triumphs
I believe that anyone who can read a recipe can cook so most of my dishes are triumphs. I always put my own spin on recipes to make them my own or get an idea from a recipe and go off on my own.
My cooking tragedies
When I was twelve,I was baking a cake from my new Betty Crocker Cookbook and mistakenly incorporated directions and ingredients from two recipes.Knowing that the batter didn't look right I became distressed.Older(19)brother comes in,gives his ideas,baked the cake and it was as hard as a brick.I'm sure that the building industry would have loved the recipe.Needless to say I never made that mistake again.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes
I remember eating this as a child and have been making it myself for many many years using chopped garlic instead of garlic powder.Have always cooked on stove top. Never tried it in a slow cooker.The same basic dish can be made using smoked turkey and a dash of bottled smoke seasoning(if you don't eat pork)

Fish Roll-Ups
We loved it! Had 4 sole fillets,Town House crackers and a container of lump crab from the fresh seafood area of the supermarket.My only addition to the recipe was a generous sprinkling of Cajun seafood seasoning. Divided the mixture between the 4 fillets easily rolled them and secured with toothpicks.I uncovered the dish, basted the fish with the pan juices and put it under the broiler as suggested by others for the last 5 min. Will make again but may use another type of fish. My husband and I both really enjoyed this dish.

Easy Garlic Chicken
Followed the recipe as given and found it to be lacking in flavor.It was moist and not dry but the garlic flavor just did not penetrate the chicken. If I were to try this again I would probably marinate the chicken for an hour or so in some type of garlic/Italian herb mixture.
