About this Cook
Married, two married daughters,and a Grandma to four. Tyler-12; Trenton-6, Jordan-6 and Ashlyn-3. The two boys live really close, so they are at my house all the time and help me cook. They are getting pretty good.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking caseroles, slow cooking and trying all types of new things. My husband does not do "spicy", so I have to watch that one. Really enjoy different meat recipes. We do a lot of gardening, so canning is very high on my list.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are always together on Christmas Eve and my Mother started a tradition when I was little that carries today. We have homemade oyster stew and ham sandwiches after church services. She would be happy that this has continued. She passed away 6 years ago and both of my girls know the recipe and will continue after I am gone.
My cooking triumphs
I have some awesome recipes passed down from my Grams, Mother, and Aunt for canned foods from the garden. My girls think I have the best Peanut Butter cake recipe in the world -- so did my Grandfather, I made it for his birthday every year.
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes I still have problems with mashed potatoes. My family gets a real laugh out of it. They say I can cook anything, but they have to stand back when they look at the potatoes, just to be sure they are edible. I think it is the type of potatoes I use. It doesn't happen often, but when it does--it is a disaster, but very funny.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers
This is very good recipie. I made exactly as directed and they turned out great. I also make a very similar "burger". I omit the pepper flakes and lemon juice and add about 2 tsps. of Old Bay or to taste. They hold together well and the Old Bay gives it a little kick.

Yummy Roll Ups
I have been making these for years, but I use cream cheese with chives and baby cherkins instead of dill pickles. Always a family favorite.

Pretzel Turtles
Incredible. Read all of the reviews first and they were helpful, but this is so easy, you can't really mess it up. I used part Rolos and part Hershey Kisses with Carmel. My neighbor liked the Kisses since they are not as "chocolity" as the Rolos. My Grandson ate the first batch and finished 4 more on the way to the neighbors with a plate. Good thing she only lives 25 feet away. Will use this one often for church and other functions. Thanks!!
