About this Cook
I live in Kansas and enjoy cooking. I am widowed but still try to eat healthy foods.
My favorite things to cook
Tacos; baked potatoes (with variations); stir fry; hamburgers; chili; oatmeal cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
My late husband enjoyed making bread (no bread machine for him!) and every Christmas he made a "Sugarplum Bread" as a gift for his children. They really loved it and missed it so much this last holiday.
My cooking triumphs
My husband really enjoyed my "Impossible taco pie". He even took some to work and his co-workers asked for the recipe.

Traditional Russian Pirozhki
This sounds delicious and reminds me of German Bierocks which I used to get in Kansas. The difference is that Bierocks don't usually use hard boiled eggs in the filling, but use cabbage and ground meat. Great stuff.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding
My mother used to make this pudding when I was a little girl. She also made a vanilla version that she called "Blanc Mange" (Blah-Mahnge - not Blank Mange). Happy memories.

Restaurant-Quality Baked Potato Soup
This is a wonderful soup for a cold wintery day. The addition of the instant potatoes is an excellent thickener. My local (Kroger) grocery store sells a great soup that reminds me of this, but this is cheaper to make and I like it better.
