About this Cook
I am a retired teacher. I love to cook and I am good at it! I have two older sisters and a 90 yr old father that I cook for so I am always looking for recipes that will store/travel well.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned how to make giblet gravy from my mother. People rave about it. This last year I made 16 GALLONS of it for our Thanksgiving dinner at church! Thank goodness it only comes around once a yr.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to grill fish!!! I can do it now. In fact, I rarely order grilled fish at a restaurant because I know mine is better! But there was definitely a learning curve that my husband was very patient with!
My cooking tragedies
My husband took pictures of this catastrophe!!!. I thought I could substitute a can of cherry pie filling made with splenda for a regular can of cherry pie filling. After turning out the coffee cake that has a layer of pie filling in it. I watched red molten lava start oozing out the sides, the top started breaking up and sliding to one side and onto the cabinet top. I kept trying to scoop it up and put it back. There have been few times that I have laughed this hard! It was virtually all over everything!

Brazilian White Rice
Added more onion and garlic and it was still very bland. Too many other really good rice recipes around; will not try to "fix" his one.

Mom's Warm Milk
At our house this is called "magic milk" because we always add food coloring! I have raised 11 grandchildren and my own children on this. They love it!
