About this Cook
I am retired and enjoy finding new things to cook and having family over to enjoy. My husband is the best as he will eat whatever I fix, but will tell me if he doesn't care to have it again. LOL
My favorite things to cook
Meals that are satisfying, full of flavor and healthy. I am learning to go back to basics and making them healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We really didn't have any except for having turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have taken the egg laden stuffing that my mother and aunt made to a healthy stuffing/dressing that you can eat anytime.
My cooking triumphs
Probably this year as Allrecipes is addictive to me. Brined our turkey for the first time and baked an apple pie from scratch (and I don't like pie). Everything was wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
Nothing really except to make it with the least amount of stress and for everyone to like it enough to have again.

It doesn't get any easier and quicker and it tastes awesome. Very easy to double, just use a 13X9 pan.
