About this Cook
I have been a homemaker for past 25 years, and my husband and I have nine children, and one grandson. We live in central Wisconsin. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and sewing, and I do lots of volunteer work.
My favorite things to cook
I have a grain grinder and have cooked whole wheat bread from scratch and taught community classes on whole wheat bread making, and have done home ec classes in schools for the same. I especially love doing grade school level classes the kids are fantastic and love to make personal pan whole wheat pizza's and are fascinated.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my husband and I cook together, our kids love the all the smells esp. of the seasons.
My cooking triumphs
Teaching at the Art Center and a local Community College on specialty breads. I also took a cooking class from a well reknowned French Cook and learned to make the most awesome bread pudding. It was alot of fun, however too expensive to continue, I was her guest.
My cooking tragedies
Thankfully haven't been too many, my family eats just about any and all flops!

Potato Pancakes
One problem with how this recipe is written: It states in a food processor grate potatoes and onion, it would be more helpful to state as: grate potatoes and chop onion fine. I was concerned with the recipe not being too dry so I used 5 eggs and added 1/2 cup of oil, I beat eggs & oil till foamy, than I added pancake mix, started mixer & added onions, potatoes, salt pepper and continued mixing until well incorporated. Than turned out onto a sizzling griddle, spread potatoes out with mixture, turned when bubbly, these turned out like heaven, we used sour cream and/or chunky applesauce with cinnamon and/or real maple syrup. I even doubled this recipe and it turned out with excellent results, for doubling I used 10 eggs and 1 cup oil. I never thought about using pancake mix! What a great thought, thanks for submitting this recipe.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
