About this Cook
I have a wonderful husband of almost 22 years and a 13 year old daughter who is the apple of our eyes!! We have a miniature dachsund named Tater who LOVES to eat and will steal food from whereever and whoever he can get it. I don't know how he manages to keep his "girlish" figure of 10 lbs.!! I love to cook and to try out new recipes. I know it's good if my husband says "it's a keeper". I have a HUGE cookbook collection and would some day like to publish one of my own. I have been cooking since I was very young. Mom would turn me loose in the kitchen and let me do what I wanted to. Everyone at the local grocery store knew when I found a new recipe because mom would be there trying to find a "not your ordinary kind of ingredient" for my dish. My mom and sister are great cooks as was my grandmother. My husband's mom & sister are also great cooks, as were both of his grandmothers.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, desserts, casseroles, one-pot meals. I love to make soups - I feel like an artist when I make soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can't really think of one right now.
My cooking triumphs
I won first place in a local recipe submission contest.
My cooking tragedies
Nacho Chicken (not from this site)!!!! I don't know what happened but it went straight to the dog!!

Cucumber with Sour Cream
I submitted this recipe so long ago that I forgot that I did!lol Just wanted to add that you do not necessarily need to use heavy whipping cream - good ole' milk will do the trick. My wonderful Mother-in-Law gave me this recipe almost 28 years ago and I just love it! I have never seen another one quite like it and everyone who tries it at potluck and church functions always wants the recipe. It goes well with just about everything. Enjoy!!

Perfect Cheesecake Everytime
I have made this cheesecake twice now and am going to make it again this week for Christmas! The only thing I do different is to just make a plain graham cracker crust. I think it is the easiest and best tasting cheesecake recipe I have ever found. Tastes just like restaurant cheesecakes that cost about $30.00 for a whole one! We like it drizzled with chocolate & caramel syrup. This time I am going to puree thawed frozen strawberries to pour on top - can't wait to try it that way. This one is a must try!!

Sour Cream Mushroom Dip
I made this recipe just as written and we loved it! This would be great on garlic bread. I think next time I make it I will put in a couple of cloves of garlic with the mushrooms while they cook. Thank for a delicious and unique recipe!!
