Me and my baby at the beach
Solice at the beach
About this Cook
I am very outgoing, and have a bubbly personality. I love trying new things in the kitchen especially when hubby is helping. I love to walk, bike , hike, beach outings,enjoy a glass of wine now and then, I like to read, sew, garden, and just enjoy life with my husband, my three grown daughters and four beautiful grand children.
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of pasta! I love to experiment. Also good old fashion pork roasts and chuck roast. Also love to cook chicken a lot, and often add it to pastas, and throw in some of my own spices.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess would be all of the baking goodies before the holidays that was always a tradition in my family. I think my mom always had to make every kind of candy known to man. I don't make nearly as much as she did, but always remember the awesome smells throughout the house.
My cooking triumphs
I guess would have to be when we cooked our very first prime rib, this past Christmas. I was so worried it wouldn't turn out or that I would mess it up somehow, but it turned out great!! It tasted super and got lots of compliments over it.! YEH!!!
My cooking tragedies
A very simple tragedie for me would be I never seem to be able to boil brussel sprouts without burning them! I get side tracked every time I cook those darn things! And it doesn't make the house smell real great either!

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.
