About this Cook
I grew up with just my father and brother having lost my mother at a young age. As a result I always viewed cooking as a chore along with laundry etc. LAter, on my own, why cook when I live in a city that can bring any type of cuisine to your front door......Now older and married I find cooking relaxing and fun. I am now the house where every holiday etc is held!
My favorite things to cook
I love the Slow Cooker! As a full time mom witj a full time job also, it is wonderful to come home to smell dinner almost done. Also love experimenting with new salads and grill ideas to cook on our boat in the summer!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only cooking traditions I can remember are a few dishes of my mothers that I tried to recreate to the best of my ability. Other than that my influencs are kinda southern yankee........
My cooking triumphs
Many I am happy to say - the more I cook the more I get confident in my own instincts for additions and replacements. Also very good at creating things out of what is on hand - one of my fave souups - Italian Sausage Soup was made of what veggies I had on hand
My cooking tragedies
Also many..there is the Thanksgiving I set the oven on fire but saed the turkey...then when I was 10, of course mistaking the 2 cup capacity measuring cup as ONE cup resulting in double sugar in a recipe that didnt do well..........

Bacon Chicken and Dumplings
Oh man...I tried this once and have never made it any other way since.........this is my first review after years of membership , that is how good I think this was....I made it exactly as listed but have also substituted milk for half and half in a pinch and it is just as good....I highly recommend this comfort food!

Strawberry Cake I
5 stars for me! Just made this for my daughter's sixth birthday and she proclaimed it the "best cake ever mom"......Only things I altered were I used french vanilla cake mix as per other reviews and added more strawberries (aprox 1 cup) .....frosted with cream cheese whipped icing and topped with fresh strawberries - thanks for posting!!!
