About this Cook
I live in Phoenix, AZ with my husband and little dog. Am starting to enjoy cooking more than I used to due to the abundance of cooking shows on TV and food websites on the internet. These sources have taught me quite a bit more about this great art.
My favorite things to cook
Casserole type dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking a family Christmas cookie recipe during the holidays. This cookie is a family recipe that I have been making for years and there is no recipe I have ever found that comes close to these fabulous cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Have made a triple layer "Hummingbird" cake several times all with great success.
My cooking tragedies
Have had the misfortune to have had several "overcooked" meatloaves in my cooking career.

Gel's Green Beans and Beef
I made this last night. It sounded so good I could not wait to try it. I was, however, disappointed. It did not have much flavor. I was hesitant to add the flour/water mixture at the end, but did so anyway. I wish I would not have, it didn't need it. I don't think I will make this again.

Aunt Anne's Sesame Cookies
These cookies are fantastic!! I made the recipe just as stated and would not change a thing. Some previous reviews state there was not enough anise but I did not find this to be the case. Just the perfect amount. Will definitely make again. Have included some photos of these great cookies.

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne
This was a great meal. These are the alterations I made. Used "healthy request" mushroom soup and used real mushrooms rather than canned. I did not cook the 6-8 hours as it did not need it. I would make again.
