About this Cook
Now that the children are grown up, I can try more adventurous recipes & ingredients without having to worry if the kids will like it! My husband and I are no longer in a rut with nightly meals and we enjoy trying different recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Of course I like to bake all kinds of goodies, but I especially like to entertain and cook wonderful appetizers and entrees for our guests.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything Greek-since I am Greek and my Yia Yia taught me how to cook Greek food from the young age of 7. Happily, my husband has acquired a taste for Greek food!
My cooking triumphs
If it's edible and yummy, it's a triumph!!! I like to both bake and cook.
My cooking tragedies
Now that I'm semi-retired, I have more time to spend in the kitchen and I've found I can focus more on my cooking skills! Husband really appreciates all the new dishes I've been making from AR!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas Verde
These were absolutely delicious! My husband and sister said the recipe is a "keeper!" Easy to make, and very tasty for those of us who can't eat real hot/spicy food!

Greg's Southern Biscuits
I've been trying to make homemade southern buttermilk biscuits for years and they never turn out well, no matter what recipe I try. These turned out perfect and my husband is devouring them and moaning with happiness as I write this! Thank you, thank you for this wonderful recipe and the tips on making great biscuits. This is life changing in our home!

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef
Everyone loves SOS! Growing up in a military family, we always knew when it was the end of the month and money was tight! The Worchetershire sauce added a little zip!
