About this Cook
I'm a natural born home-maker. I feel as if I were born in the wrong era...1950's would have been a better time for me! I love to sew, cross-stitch, cook, and especially love to bake! I love to garden, and am a novice canner, too.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make cookies, cakes, and am learning to cook healthier meals for myself and family. I try to avoid fried foods and fast food now-a-days, and I even tried to become a Vegan, however that only lasted 1 week! I don't eat much red meat, but love chicken and fish, as well as veggies. I am always looking for a good recipe that will become a family favorite!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have many recipes in our family that have been handed down from my mother (a fabulous cook!) Christmas and Thanksgiving are always big food events in our family. Next year I hope to attempt a Gingerbread House, and make that an annual tradition, too.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a great baker, but need work on cooking meats, and bbq-ing.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not so good at fancy culinary undertakings, although I recently made stuffed cornish game hens (from a recipe from this website) and they turned out perfect! Yeah!

Ratatouille Bake
I made this recipe as directed and it yielded a lot! My husband, who generally dislikes most vegetables, LOVED this recipe! This one's definitely a "keeper."

Oregon Salmon Patties
I had been looking for a recipe to utilize a canned salmon supply in our pantry...this one is amazing! We drizzle my honey-mustard dressing over the patties and my family gobbles them up!

This was SO easy!...and delicious! One of the best recipies for shrimp scampi I've found! I did cut back on the butter a bit, but otherwise it was GREAT!
