About this Cook
Retired now, but love to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Most anything except desserts. Can't stand anything that is sweet, and I have never found a dessert I like. Except butter tarts and chocolate. Ooh they're good. I also like to try different things, different recipes. Don't like boring same old stuff. That's where this website is a wonderful tool.
My cooking triumphs
Steak and Kidney puddings. My family think they are good. Bad for you, but so good. Originally from England, we really love these. It's a taste of back home.
My cooking tragedies
Just asked my husband this and he says nothing comes to mind so either he's kind or absent minded :0)

Mushroom Pork Chops
Have been making this for a long time, and it is very tasty. The only thing I add is a pinch of curry powder. Gives a nice little kick to the sauce.

Amazing Southwest Cilantro Lime Mango Grilled Chicken Sandwiches
Tried this last night. Don't be intimidated by the list of ingredients. It is so worth the time and effort. I did change just one thing and that was to add the mango to the salsa, thus making a mango salsa and eliminating the tomato. Except for that small change, I did the recipe as written and it turned out fantastic. Hubby was still raving about it the day after. This will be a definite keeper in my kitchen. Thank you Patricia for the amazing recipe.

Quiche Lorraine II
Made this as a light meal to serve 4. I figured we would have lots left but unfortunately everyone wanted large portions for seconds. Must make two next time around. Never seen a quiche disappear as quickly before. Lovely flavour, and a light texture. This is the best quiche I have ever made. Thank you for sharing this.
