About this Cook
I am a widow, retired nurse of 30 + years of service in a local medical center. I love to cook and try out new recipes even if I do live alone. I share some of my dishes with my neighbor who is always doing nice things for me. I have 4 living stepchildren and 2 living biological children. Too many grands, great-grands, and great-great-grands to count anymore. Just got a new great-grandson this month. I love cats and have 6 housecats who are just wonderful and lots of company. Not planning to get any more unless I lose of these. I am Methodist, love my Lord. I love collecting and writing recipes and collecting cookbooks. I used to garden until arthritis said no more. Too hard on the back and knees. My late husband and I were married 30 and 1/2 years when he died. He was the love of my life. If you need to know more, just ask.
My favorite things to cook
Everything and recipes that are a challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ham and all the trimmings plus turkey/ dressing with all the trimmings for Thanksgiving. For Christmas all of the kids request my chili. So on Christmas I make at least nine pounds of chili. The kids chip in and bring cold cuts, hot dogs, chips and dips etc that holiday. No chili left over.
My cooking triumphs
Won a blue ribbon one year at the fair for my canned tomatoes. I only entered one year on a dare.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention when I was learning to cook. Have been cooking since I was 9 years old. Have ruined a lot of new untried recipes in my life time.

Monkey Bread I
I used refrigerated cinnamon rolls in a tube instead of the biscuits. I can't stand refrigerated biscuits. This is a good recipe but better with the cinnamon rolls. You can use the packet of icing that comes with the tube of cinnamon rolls if you wish.

Toasted Breadcrumbs
I put my bread slices under the broiler of my oven and the browning time is quick. I just watch it closely and turn the slices over when the top is the shade of brown that I want. You can put the slices in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin or crush with your hands, use the blender or food processor.

Parmesan Fried Zucchini
Yummy, yummy! I put the eggs in one plastic bag and the bread crumb mixture in another. Less mess, less to wash.
