About this Cook
I am married with one daughter who is recently out of college and a wonderful husband. I work full-time. I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, and now enjoy taking pictures of the final product. I find myself trying things that I never thought I would and loving them.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking just about everything. I try new recipes all the time and use lots of recipes from here. I like Italian, spicy dishes, cakes and cookies, and breads are a new love for me. I recently started a vegetable garden and enjoy searching and finding recipes to use my bounty with. I'm having a lot of fun growing herbs and finding recipes to use them in. Everything tastes so fresh when using them. Our short growing season is my only downfall with gardening.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother made tons of cookies and bars for Christmas and I make quite a few myself. Like mother, like daughter I guess. Always lots of good foods for holidays and quality time with our relatives.
My cooking triumphs
I love food, so anything that I can make from scratch and have people enjoy is a triumph for me. Most recently it is baking bread. I use the bread machine to make the dough (cheating), but then shape & rise the bread myself. Cinnamon Swirl Bread is my favorite! I'm anxious to try many more fun breads, rolls, etc.
My cooking tragedies
I think the funniest one is when I was a teenager making a cake mix. It was angel food and I didn't know what that was and made it in a 9X13 pan. I looked in the oven and saw it rising out of the pan. Didn't know what to do or what it was, so I threw it away.

German Pork Chops and Sauerkraut
We really enjoyed this recipe. I cut the brown sugar to about 1/3 cup and that was just fine.

Mexican Cornbread Salad
This was great! I brought it to a vegetarian potluck (left out the bacon). I used one can of pinto beans and one can of black beans. Otherwise followed the recipe. Super delicious and everyone wanted the recipe!
