About this Cook
Mother of 5 (4 girls - 1 boy) Ages 23, 22, 20, 18, 6 (the 6 year old was a WONDERFUL surprise!!! I am also a grandma of 4 (2 girls - 2 boys). My husband and I are STILL newlyweds and enjoy each others company (most of the time I value his opinion - - unless it differs from mine!!! Just joking, or am I?!?!?!)
My favorite things to cook
I like to dabble. Would have to say that my favorite things to cook is anything grilled!!! Grilled is the absolute best...have never gone wrong with the grill!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Favorite traditions....hummmm.....does take out count???
My cooking triumphs
Anything not burned!!!! Was a short while ago that I figured out that was the smoke alarm going off and not the timer!!! Seriously. I have recently discovered the joys of baking with yeast. Have a sour dough starter and have already made 2 batches of bread...both were so yummy!!!
My cooking tragedies
Not enough space!!! How about the time I put 1/4 c of salt instead of 1/4 tsp in banana bread or there's the time I forgot I was boiling eggs and went to neighbors house. Or, there's the time when I did not add the corn syrup to the pecan pie. Think your getting the idea!!! I really have grown a lot in my cooking tho and not even once has any one went to the emergency room due to my cooking!!

Indiana-Style Fried Cabbage
this was great!! Even my picky/non-veggie eating 3 year old ate it (have to give it 5 stars just because of that!!). Made it from memory cause I did not have my computer at the time and made it a bit different. I cut up the bacon first then fried it semi crisp. then sauted all ingredients (except for the cabbage) for about 15 minutes in a cast iron skillet, then added the cabbage. My husband and myself loved it and it is a definate keeper. Next time I will make it by the cooking directions just to see if it is any better.

Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes
I made this and found it to be wonderful. The only thing I changed was to par boil the potatoes before hand (after reading other reviews that the potatoes were not cooked completely thru). Ended up marinating for about 18 hours as we had a grandbaby born the day in which these were intended. I Think because they were partially cooked before marinated helped to ensure they soaked up the flavor. Super Yummy!!! Took some to the hospital for my daughter and she really liked!! By the way, beautiful baby boy!!!!
