About this Cook
I love to cook, but hate the mess I make. My huband Bob is so great he is my chief "bottle washer", cleaning up after me so when I'm done the kitchen is in tip top shape. Just this winter I really started venturing out of my comfort zone and straying from the "exact recipe" and adding my own creations. I have actually become almost "obsessed" more than we can eat.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make casseroles and things we can eat a day or two. Love leftovers. Italian and Mexican are some of my favorites, and of course roast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm told I make the best mashed potatoes.No matter whose house I'm at they ask me to mash them. I use a stick of butter and milnot..maybe a little milk. The milnot whips so you can't go wrong. I also am pickey about the right amount of salt and pepper - don't want it too bland. My grandkids say I make the best Mac-N-Cheese. And we always have noodles for Thanksgiving. My husband and I have a secret hot wing recipe. It is so secret even we don't know what is in it, because he leaves the room and I add things, I leave the room and he adds more Franks Hot sauce. If one of us dies, so will the recipe.
My cooking triumphs
One christmas Eve many, many years ago I put out a spread with all kinds of appetizers, punch bowl that sits on a large glass plate that I decorated with evergreen branches and white twinkle lights and candle lights. It was so beautiful, I'm glad I have a picture of it. I look at it and wonder how in the world I did that.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a meatloaf that the dog wouldn't eat. That is pretty bad, since it was 99% meat. I tried to be creative and just threw things was awful! Our schauzer turned his nose up at it. I have only this year perfected my meatloaf...I'll have to post it sometime.

Baked Ham and Cheese Party Sandwiches
The other recipe on site doesn't have Worcestershire sauce. Someone brought these to a party yesterday and they were wonderful. She used Hawaiian rolls in lieu of buns. She used worchestershire. And you must use HONEY MUSTARD.

Citrus Turkey Brine
This is the first time I have ever brined a turkey. It was deemed the best turkey I've ever made and asked for me to make it this way from now on. Moist and flavorable! Wish I heard about this years ago.
