About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was 9 years old. I started in 4-H and just kept going. My mother and I owned a restaurant in her 175 year old farmhouse for five years. We served family-style meals on Friday and Saturday nights. She retired and we closed in 1995, but still get the occasional phone call for reservations.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook desserts and presently bake whipped cream cakes for special occasions including weddings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Day we have h'ors d'oevres and desserts for an all day feast. Our must-have is Date Steamed Pudding with butter sauce. An old family recipe that never gets old.
My cooking triumphs
Any meal that everyone enjoys is what I consider a triumph. One favorite is my pot roast with horseradish, and chocolate mousse peppermint whipped cream cake.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to count. Although everyone seems to think I cam a great cook, they do not see the things that go directly to the trash!

Lamb and Winter Vegetable Stew
This is a wonderful recipe. I made a few changes. I doubled the broth and wine. I cooked the onion and celery in oil until tender, then added the lamb,browning on all sides. I then stirred in the wine to deglaze the pan and added the beef broth, and spices and simmered for about 1 hour. Then, I stirred in vegetables and cooked until tender (about 20 minutes) I doubled the flour and mixed with a little water to make a slurry. I stirred in the slurry, brought to a boil and cooked for 1 minute. Then, I stirred in the sour cream (doubled again) and heated through. If you boil the sour cream, it separates a bit. Enjoy all!

Banana Sour Cream Bread
This is the best banana bread ever! Since pan sizes vary, you may have to bake a bit longer. Be patient, it is worth the wait. Use a toothpick to test for doneness. These are also great as muffins.
