About this Cook
I have a fabric dyeing and quilt block business. My husband makes tie-dyed clothing. We have 2 dogs and 5 cats, but no children. I love to read especially mysteries.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups and breads. Nothing more comforting than a big bowl of soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When ever I go home, my grandmother makes her meatloaf. Another thing that comes to mind that my aunt started was mashing a few carrots into turnips. This is something I still do.
My cooking triumphs
I made my first cheesecake this week. It cracked a little, but was delicious otherwise. I've also made several souffles.
My cooking tragedies
to many to name, but the one that really comes to mind was a casserole. I was about 14 living with relatives. I found this recipe that included hot dogs, cream corn and tater tots (yeah, I don't know what I was thinking either). Let's just say no one wanted hot dogs for quite some time.

Herbed Chicken Nuggets
to reviewer under "MOST HELPFUL" where does it claim these are gourmet chicken nuggets? your comment is not a review! I used everything except for the red chili pepper flakes and I added garlic powder. I had a recipe for a fried chicken salad and I used this recipe in place of the fried chicken and it was really good!

Szechwan Shrimp
very good! I cut back on the crushed red pepper flakes ONLY because I've not tolerated spicy food lately. Will keep this on the shrimp rotation. and people who put up there own recipe and give the existing recipe low ratings--here's a clue. I DO NOT care what your recipe calls for or that you do this because your 2 year old doesn't like 3/4 of the ingredients! you skew the rating by doing this. If you want people to know about YOUR recipe put it up on the site!

Southern Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Mushrooms, and Onions
people quit reviewing when you haven't freaking made the darn recipe! you skew the rating when you do this. frankly, I don't care that YOU think there is too much bacon in the recipe. If I (or anyone else) wants to add a pull pound of bacon I can. My only addition was to add a bit of fresh thyme to the cabbage as it cooked. I like thyme with sauted mushrooms and we both thought it was good with the cabbage. I served mashed red potatoes--reminded me a variation on Colcannon which we love.
