About this Cook
My hubby and I just celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary, (and they said it would never last!) and are still happily going along. We both love to eat ahd cook and my hubby is retired Navy, retired Deputy and retired Electronics engineer. We still like doing things together, but he likes to camp and walk, and I would rather not.
My favorite things to cook
I love Mexican food, and I love baking desserts, love Southern cooking, especially the pork butts and fried chicken. We try to eat healthy, and diet, but darn it, we sure do love to eat too. Anyway, I like to try new recipes and I love reading cookbooks just like novels. I LOVE allrecipes.com! No matter what I am looking for, I come here first, because I always find it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a wonderful cook, in the old style of southern ways. She could make a big meal from practically nothing. She grew up in the Depression, and her ingenuity for feeding a family started way back there. She taught me how to cook and I took Home Ec in the fifties for six years of school, from 7th grade till graduation, so I was well grounded. I'm now in my sixties and still love to cook, even though my 3 "kids" are grown with families of their own. When we are all together, it is fun to all be in the kitchen these days.
My cooking triumphs
I've had a lot of great dinners turn out pretty good, and baked a couple of wedding cakes that were nice. Love to bake bread, but try not to, since we shouldn't eat so much.
My cooking tragedies
Years ago in the 70's, I tried an eggplant casserole, (Mousakka) and I have never lived it down to this day. My son always has to bring it up, and my two girls say "Ewwww! That WAS awful Mom!" That is the very worst thing I ever cooked, and it is a stain on my otherwise stellar record, (she says with tongue in cheek.) I'm sure there were other flops, but that is always the one that is told, over and over and over.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Ellie11, thank you for posting this! I haven't made potato soup in a long time, so this was just wonderful for an evening when we have been painting the living room, and were tired. It only took 45 minutes to make and I had everything, so it was so easy to make. My husband is still slurping up his 3rd bowl, and I had two myself. Such a comforting, homey supper, that reminds me of my mom's potato soup when I was a kid. I didn't consider it bland at all. You can always add seasoning to your taste. We did add some cheese to the top of the serving and it was delish! Thank you for a great soup, which went right to my recipe box.

Navajo Fry Bread I
I was wondering if the raters who are Native Americans could post their traditional recipes for Fry Bread on here. I live in Arizona and would LOVE to have a true recipe for this delicious native dish. I am going to try this recipe and see if it is better than the one I have had for years. It comes out tough when I try to make it from the recipe I have.

Angel Biscuits II
I LOVE this recipe! I have used one like it for years which my Aunt Jean gave me. It makes wonderful biscuits, but I also use it to make cinnamon bread, cinnamon rolls, and Christmas tree bread, with the candied fruit and nuts in it. It is wonderful, makes a lot and everyone loves anything I make from it. Plus, it is FAST to work with! Thank you, Karin for this recipe!
