About this Cook
I'm a biological, adoptive & foster mom with five kids! I've been gleefully married since 1986. I'm also active in helping raise awareness in the community to the need for more foster and adoptive parents.
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti (my Uncle Glenn's recipe), ham, turkey, chicken monte cristo, chicken & rice, and lots of soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey dinner for Christmas and Easter. Working together in the kitchen to make spaghetti & clam chowder.
My cooking triumphs
I taught myself how to cook when I became an adult. I learned to can and make jams/jellies at my mom's knee & still love to make them.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many of them, but once when my in-law's oven thermostat was broken & I was making a quiche. I put it on the rack, shut the door and turned around to hear a loud pop. I opened the oven to find that the pyrex baking dish had broken & the eggs were cooked and stuck onto the rack and oven bottom! We don't know how hot the oven was but I'm sure it was well over 500 degrees!

Cinnamon Pear Frozen Yogurt
Oh my goodness! This is fantastic! I made it with Splenda & fat free plain yogurt (come to think of it, I forgot to put vanilla in it like I'd planned). The kids all loved it & so did we. We doubled the recipe & ended up with only a tiny bit left over. The flavor is excellent & intense. The texture is creamy and smooth. Everyone loved it, even my 19 y.o. son's friends who were here for a visit.

T's Sweet Potato Fries
Could have been a little more "firm" but flavor was excellent. We dipped them in honey & it was a real treat. The sweet potato fries I've had before were deep fried; so it's not really a fair comparison, but these were WAY healthier.
