Me and My Granddaughter Jocelyn!
About this Cook
I was born and raised in a small rural town in Washington State. I've been married to the same wonderful man for almost 25 years now. That's a real accomplishment these days! We have two grown children, a son and daughter and three beautiful grandchildren, a girl and twin boys whom we absolutely adore!
My favorite things to cook
I manage an assisted living facility and am always looking for new recipes. It's a challenge to try and keep menus for 15 residents new and fresh!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I miss both of my grandmother's cooking terribly! My paternal grandmother made the best chicken and dumplings ever and a chocolate zucchini cake with chocolate frosting that melted in your mouth! My maternal grandmother made the absolute best milk gravy from fried chicken drippings and the most lucious kuchens ever! Some of these foods I've tried to re-create but they just never turn out like grandmas, and a couple of the recipes were never written down and died when they did. How I miss them both!

Soda Pop Cake
This is the yummiest moistest cake ever! We loved it. I used Jones Strawberry & Lime soda when I made it. Next time I will try the orange soda as another reviewer mentioned. It definitely needs to be eaten within a day or so, but that has never been a problem for us!

Caramel Bars
YUMMY! These were absolutely wonderful. The only thing I did differently was I used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and pecans instead of walnuts. Next time I make them - and trust me there will be a next time - I will either double the recipe and use the 13 X 9 inch pan or keep the recipe the same and use a 9 X 9 inch pan. I think it will thicker and gooier that way! THANKS for the recipe!

Grilled Mahi Mahi
We made this for our residents at our assisted living facility and those that had it said it was "a keeper"! We made a few changes since we were making it for an older group of people; we used apple juice instead of wine, regular diced tomatoes without the green chilies and Monterey Jack/Colby cheese instead of the Pepper jack. It's a recipe we will definitely use again.
