About this Cook
I'm a widowed Mom of two daughters. I work full time but I love to cook on my days off. I love to read, play with my dogs, and watch movies.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, haven't had a lot of luck with bread, but desserts are a specialty. I could eat soup every day, so I like to do soup and stews, especially on cold days. I make a killer lasagna, chili, and Thanksgiving dinner is my absolute favorite to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, with my younger daughter helping. (She's a chef in her own right). Lots of cookies and homemade candy at Christmastime for gifts to friends and neighbors. Easter brunch for my family and in-laws. My Dad likes my salmon on the grill and chicken and dumplings--and he's REALLY picky.
My cooking triumphs
The best, moistest turkey ever. I swear by brining. Killer lasagna, best chili ever. Roasted chicken that is easy, quick, and perfect every time. Best snickerdoodles that everyone loves.
My cooking tragedies
My meatloaf ALWAYS falls apart. I've never had good luck baking bread. That is my next goal--to bake a perfect loaf.

Grandpa's Beef, Mushroom, and Barley Soup
This was the best! I love barley and found quick cooking barley. I used stew meat that I cut into smaller pieces. Also, had fresh mushrooms YUMMIE. My husband ate 4 bowls in one sitting---and he's not ususally a "soup guy". My new favorite soup!!
