About this Cook
Since our kids have flown the nest, there's only two of us to cook for now. I often look for dishes that do well for leftovers. I was getting very bored with the things that I was cooking and dreaded looking through cookbooks for something interesting. Since I've joined allrecipes, my cooking has definitely gotten better and I'm finding lots of things that we like. Every time I'm asked about cooking, I tell them about !
My favorite things to cook
Something easy, often something that I have the ingredients for, as we live 20 minutes from the grocery store. I meal-plan as I shop usually, looking for bargains.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family enjoys tradional holiday menus, and once in a while, I'll make something that I enjoyed at Christmastime as a child. But usually, I cook to suit the tastes of my guests.

Apple Pie Muffins
Best muffins ever. However, you must follow the instructions. Don't make substitutes for butter, type of flour, spices or buttermilk. These were fluffy and moist...the only change I made was to halve the topping--that makes just enough for 12 muffins.

Only a few things that can be done with rhubarb, most of them desserts. Rhubarb mushy, but very tasty. Didn't have garlic powder, so used minced garlic, about 2T. I used Thomson raisins, but dried cherries or cranberries could also be used. Just keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn to the bottom of the pot.

Red Lentil and Yellow Split Pea Soup Made with a Pressure Cooker
Not having a pressure cooker, I just made the soup and added ham. Wow! I love this!
