About this Cook
Married to my wonderful husband for 26 years. We have an equally wonderful 19-year-old son and one sweet old dog. I love to read cookbooks. Only other cooks can appreciate that -- most others think I'm a bit nuts. LOL
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite, but I'm game for all different kinds of dishes. I don't consider myself an expert by any means, but I'm not a beginner either. I am definitely a recipe-follower.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned at the side of my mother, but I am so glad I took a Home Economics class in Jr. High school. It spurred a love of all things domestic in me.
My cooking triumphs
I still amaze myself when things come out well, so I am always glad for those cooking triumphs.
My cooking tragedies
I'm still trying to perfect some recipes due to living at high altitude (6,000 ft. elevation). It's a challenge, but I keep working at it.

Tim's Green Bean Casserole Extraordinaire
Served this at Thanksgiving this year and it went over very well. Substituted french-fried onions on the top since I was already making potatoes with a cornflake topping on it. Thanks for sharing this!

Hash Brown Casserole II
My cousin, the day after I served this at Thanksgiving, called me on the phone and said, "I just want you to know that I am taking the last bite of the leftover potato casserole that you sent home with me and I am very, very sad. That was the BEST potato dish I have ever tasted!" Will definitely be making this one again. It was a BIG hit with my family.
