Me on a sunny day
About this Cook
My cooking background includes a father who likes to experiment with colors, textures and flavors, and a mother who specializes in down home cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Chili, baked spaghetti, any dessert
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whenever we have a family gathering, it is always my responsibility to bring a homemade dessert of some kind - which I gladly do...with a sense of adventure! At Thanksgiving and Christmas, the traditional fare is persimmon pudding with nutmeg sauce.

Soft Sugar Cookies II
I halved the recipe so I could try it without wasting ingredients. I like it and could see myself making a small batch again because of the flavor, but not because I've found the perfect sugar cookie recipe - because this isn't it.

Black-Eyed Peas Spicy Style
I've been trying to keep things vegetarian and not add meat for flavor. So I sauteed the onion in 1 T. olive oil and 1/4 t. garlic salt for about five minutes before adding the beans and jalapeno pepper. It was fabulous and I'll be putting this on my regular side dish rotation.

Polynesian Coleslaw
Excellent flavors...exotic combination! That being said I modified it a little. I doubled the hot sauce, used reduced sodium soy sauce, only used one red bell pepper and 5 cups vs 8 cups of shredded cabbage. Delightful :-) I'll definitely make this one again!
