About this Cook
I hove loved to cook since I was a child. My father was a chef and he let me help in the kitchen. Now that it is just my husband and I at home I still enjoy preparing meals and entertaing friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I am known as the "Pie Baker" to my friends. I also like to bake bread, muffins. Guess it's dificult to identify my favorite things to cook as I seem to enjoy most all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family remembers my goulash (not my favorite to eat) as being a family favorite. Also they often ask for my meatloaf. Grown kids and grandchildren aren't much on sweets to they do not ask for my pies :)
My cooking triumphs
I am of Scandanavian decent and love making Kranse Kage which is a almond like cake that is baked in rings and stacked. I made two for one daughters wedding and have made several for gifts.
My cooking tragedies
My first pie crust - tried when I was first married 49 yrs. ago. Also forgot to put yeast in my first bread try.

Spicy Deviled Eggs
I followed the recipe exactly and had to add more Mayo than called for, about 2x's more. Especially like the Dijon mustard and hot sauce addition. Flavor was great. Will make again.

Sloppy Joes I
This is the ONLY Sloppy Joes my husband will eat AND it is the ONLY thing he can actually make. We have been married 52 years and it is a recipe he brought to our marriage :) The only thing he does differently is omit the water - otherwise it is just the same.

Ham, Potato, and Cheese Soup
I cut the recipe to 4 servings. Had a ham shank bone left from Easter so I simmerd it in Chicken broth for an hour - then added the potatoes and onion and a couple stalks of celery. The soup very tasty. Served it with muffins and a salad.
