About this Cook
I work in a floral shop/garden center as an office manager. Cooking, gardening (vegie and floral) and making jewelry are my passions along with my 3 cats and new rescue dog, Sophie.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups, fresh vegetable dishes and grill anything. Pasta dishes are also a favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potato dishes are my expertise in my family from potato salad to augratin. My mother's recipes...Apple and Cherry pie too.
My cooking triumphs
I am able to put together recipes by knowing what foods will blend and/or accent each other. I have a mexican dish that everyone loves that a Hispanic friend of my mine calls "Polish/Mexican dinner" after my heritage and his.
My cooking tragedies
My first Cherry Pie was Cherry soup. A breakfast casserole my husband just had to make.

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi
We loved this recipe, a different twist on scampi. We had fried a bit of bacon for salad and started the sauté with the leftover bacon grease with the olive oil and a bit of butter. I had no brandy but used a blended whiskey (yum), added some lemon juice at the end and threw some parmesan cheese on as we served it on some pasta. Not too much pasta because the shrimp became the main character for the entre. Wedge salad and garlic bread completed the meal, Heaven!
