About this Cook
Retired administrative assistant in a neurologist's office. Married for 38 years and have a 29 yo daughter who is back at home. We have lived in Florida for nearly 34 years. My husband works for a national wholesale foodservice company so it is fun to have him in the kitchen with me.
My favorite things to cook
I'm pretty adventurous...can't say that I have one favorite thing. Nothing like comfort food....a good roast or meatloaf. Not heavily into BBQ or Chinese!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, so I try to keep those Scandinavian traditions alive. Red cabbage, frikadilla, pork roast. Danish cookies (kleiner)
My cooking triumphs
Our annual Christmas party for about 40 people when we cook all the food (appetizers, salads, meat, cookies, desserts) ourselves. Not to mention favors, drinks etc.
My cooking tragedies
hmmm.....they must be WAaaaY back in my memory bank.

No-Frying Eggplant Parmesan
Great way to make eggplant parm. I cut recipe in half for two of us and only needed one egg. Used homemade sauce I keep in the freezer. Also Italian shredded cheese vs plain mozzarella added more flavor. Serve with a side of Italian sausage. Yum!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
These cookies were excellent and disappeared at a party I took them to. I had to laugh because my husband claims to not like pumpkin in any form except pie but when he tried these he claimed they were exactly like the spice cookies his grandmother made. We won't tell him they are pumpkin!
