About this Cook
Just your average (HA!!)mom of 3, grandmother of 1 who loves to cook. Born and raised in Rhode Island, relocated to Georgia.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that tickles my fancy. Foods that please my family, my guests or a stranger on the street.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom would dice up all the onions and celery and to me, that signified the official start of the holiday season!! You HAVE to do it ALL by hand...anything less is cheating and totally unacceptable!!
My cooking triumphs
Everything I put my hand to except below...
My cooking tragedies
My very first Thanksgiving without my mom there (she moved to FLA) Everything was running perfectly, the sweet potato pies were done, the squash, turnips, dressing was waiting to go in the oven, I mean it was "DA BOMB!!" Table, flatware, stemware gleaming..unbelievable!! I went to check the turkey and OMG!! I put the bird in upside down!! It literally busted wide open! The horror!

Crustless Spinach Quiche
My first quiche and I'm so proud of myself. I used mozzarella, parmesean and cheddar cheeses. Fantastic! Sliced tomatoes on top..served with a little salsa. Great lowcarb meal...breakfast, lunch OR dinner. Even my boyfriend wants to try it...he's 64 and NEVER had quiche before. LOL

Basic Chicken Salad
WOOHOO!!!!! At last I've found a quick and easy chicken salad recipe! Absolutely delicious! I used miracle whip instead of mayonnaise and omitted the almonds. I can't imagine the almonds could make this taste any better. Definitely a keeper!
