About this Cook
I live in Indiana and work in the health care profession. In my spare time I care for my grandbabies who I thoroughly enjoy. Gardening has been hit and miss over the years but I do derive great satisfaction from working the dirt.
My favorite things to cook
I'm not a fancy cook. Meat and potatoes but the kids and grands all appreciate it. I love baking and I firmly believe if you are going to go to the trouble of home baked then you don't use cheap ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not so much into traditions as taking request for foods that someone is particularly fond of.
My cooking triumphs
This was many years ago but is something that everyone enjoys...homemade pumpkin pie from pumpkins we grow...I hated pumpkin pie out of a can and surely wouldn't think of putting that in my pie crust. I first altered a recipe to fit my idea of how it should taste and boy did I create a never last past one day.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention, but then don't we all have those.

Becky's Chicken Salad
I have made this so many times and how I forgot to rate it is beyond me. This is fantastic chicken salad! I will add different ingredients (crasins, pecans, even bacon).

Fried Zucchini
Not a fan of this recipe at all. Although it did make it's own batter, it didn't stick to the zucchini very well.
