About this Cook
I'm recently retired and loving it.
My favorite things to cook
Food...I love to cook and I don't really have a favorite. But if I were to pick just one thing to make I would think it's homemade soup. I make a killer Mexican Tortilla Soup!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday dinners are still prepared very closely to what my Mother made. Of course over the years I've lightened up alot of the recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Soups and stews and this Pumpkin Cheese cake I make for the holidays.
My cooking tragedies
Thankfully not many.

Ultimate Chicken Fingers
This is a keeper! Followed the directions and had no problems with soggy chicken or sticking. I did however, add 1 teaspoon of Mrs. Dash's Chicken Seasoning along with other dry ingredients. Felt that recipe as written "might" be a little tasteless. My family loved this!!

Amaretto Cheesecake I
I made this with just a few changes. First I increased the graham cracker crumbs to 1 1/2 cup. Original recipe had the crust a little skimpy. Then I increased the cream cheese to 3 packs, decreased the vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon and added 1 teaspoon of almond extract. And finally I increased the amaretto lipueur to 1/3 cup. If you want to add a nice touch, take 1/4 cup sliced almonds and mix with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Toast for 7-8 minutes in an 350 oven and after cake is baked sprinkle this mix on the top of the cake. I made this yesterday to serve today and let me tell you everyone "inhaled" this cake. There is nothing left!!! They loved it!!
