About this Cook
I learned to cook from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook over sixty years ago. I cooked for my working mother when I was on vacation from college, so I already knew how to cook when I married.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. My favorite things are those that can be used for another meal, since I cook for only myself and my husband now, after having cooked for a family of eight.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None that I'm aware of.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to feed a large family healthy meals on a teacher's salary.
My cooking tragedies
Spilling my first fresh apple pie all over the floor when I was a new bride trying to impress my husband.

Thai Chicken Curry in Coconut Milk
I added chopped garlic to the onions and red pepper mix. Used two teaspoons green curry paste and it was almost too hot. I will make this again with less curry paste.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic
My husband loved this dish. As there are only two of us, there was enough left for another meal, and he didn't mind leftovers.
