About this Cook
I'm a working mom that's been married for 24 years. I have 2 sons at home still, and recently Grampa has moved in. He has a does my oldest son, so I could be feeding anywhere from 2-7 people per night.
My favorite things to cook
I like to garden, and can my own homemade spaghetti sauce. Usually around 40-50 quarts per year. Recently was given a recipe from a friend for hot pepper mustard which I canned, and another friend gave me a recipe for hot pepper dog sauce. I guess you could say I love to collect and try new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm a soup maker....and my homemade soup is often requested by friends. There is nothing better than sitting around the table with family and friends, a big bowl of steaming soup, homemade bread and peanut butter. (YES....never forget the peanut's a staple). I make a lot of recipes that I grew up with, but also love to try new recipes. My family is used to it now. We rate them as keepers...or lets not have this again.~LOL!
My cooking triumphs
My first turkey dinner. Trying to manage to get everything on the table hot, and when I was successful I was so happy. Other than that, I'm most proud of the fact that I can throw things together, and come up with some wonderful soup.
My cooking tragedies
quite a don't get to be my age without a few. A roast cooked so hard even the dog wouldn't eat it.....pumpkin pie so sweet it made your teeth hurt...those are a few I remember.

Heavenly Hash
I've not tried this yet...but this is my Aunt Mae's recipe that she passed down to me. Yes~! I'm so glad to see it here. Instead of Pineapple..she would use peaches..or even a can of mixed fruit.

Honey Pork Oriental
I was looking for a recipe to use up my leftover pork roast..and this was perfect~! The only change I made was leave out the ginger(I was out)..and add a dash of sesame oil. When I make this again, I'll double the green pepper and onion.~ DH said it needed more honey...but I thought it was sweet enough for me. 4 stars...because it needed more veggies..and I would have loved it.

Throw Together Mexican Casserole
I made this recipe last night, and the only change I made was leave out the salsa and add in 1 cup of a homemade hot dog/hot pepper sauce that I canned. This was delicious~! My first instinct was to switch out the noodles for the rice, but I'm glad I didn't do that. My DH said this recipe was a 'keeper'~!
