About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I don't have favorites. I love to find new things and try them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cooking is a great time around my house. The oven is always going and my family and I make a wonderful mess in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I don't really have any triumphs. I always try to make my food good and tasty. When I make something new I call my daughter and use her and my husband as my taste testers. If they like it, I know I have done well.
My cooking tragedies
The first turkey I tried to cook. The poor thing didn't stand a chance. LOL

Absolute Best Liver and Onions
Great recipe. I cut down the soak time in milk to just 15 minutes because I like the unique taste of liver. I also used calves liver because of the tenderness. A little trick my mom taught me that always helps is to take a meat tenderizer and hit the meat just a very little to make it even more tender. The dish was just perfect.

Sweet Potato Pie I
Great recipe! I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar, and added 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, because I just love the spice of ginger. I also found that if you bake the potatoes instead of boil them, the taste is richer. A trick I learned from my Mom is to go through the mashed potatoes before mixing them with the other ingredients and pick out all of the strings you can. I know it takes a little time, but the result is a much smoother creamier pie. Trust me, it's worth the extra work. This pie gets rave reviews at my house.

Fruit Pizza
A great easy recipe. I used Cool Whip instead of the marshmallow creme for a little lighter texture. I added my fruits and put a strawberry glaze over all and it was wonderful.
