Grandma's Princesses
Hayley loves Grandma!
About this Cook
I am a retired disabled OR nurse. I worked for 17 yrs at my local hospital & miss my job very much. But now I have my Princess Hayley granddaughter to fill my time. Due to my disability--MS--I am limited in what I can do, but I love to cook & share my recipes w/ all my friends. I also belong to a local Lunch Bunch group & we cook & try out all our recipes for our club. I helped start it over 30 yrs ago & we are still going strong!
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Mexican & I love to bake & try new recipes all the time
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, Thanksgiving recipes w/ all the family around my dining room, & Christmas dinner w/ everyone.
My cooking triumphs
I won a contest for a recipe I made for the Splenda website using their new Splenda brown sugar & won a Kitchen Aid stand mixer!! Recipe---Sweet Sesame Chicken & it is still posted on the site!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving my oven broke & I had to feed 13 people. The turkey stayed frozen & I had to get a pre packaged meal at the grocery store. Not really MY DISASTER, as I had no control over the oven breaking down. But I got a brand new oven, that I loved at the time--it was 30 yrs ago.

Olive Chicken II
This was so very good. We love olives & tomatoes, so I followed the recipe to the "T" and it was yummy. I used a can of tiny cherry tomatoes w/ some of the juice & it was almost perfect! Also added onions, as we love them. This one's a keeper!!!

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage
This was amazingly delicious!! I followed the recipe to the exact requirements. Just had to substitute red roasted peppers as I didn't have a green one. I read a lot of reviews & was contemplating putting in the cream cheese to make it creamy, but so glad I did not, as the sauce this made was light & delicious. My husband loved it & I will definitely make this again!!

Bucket of Mud
This is the old DIRT PUDDING recipe, except I layer the cookie crumbs w/ pudding mixture until u end w/ cookie crumbs to look like "dirt." You can put gummy worms or chocolate mushrooms on top, still fil in a bucket & serve w/ shovel. It's a great recipe I have been making for over 30 yrs!!
