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.

BBQ Country Style Ribs
Such an easy recipe!! I did make some changes. My ribs were BIG. I did not use lemon. I did put a little water in the bottom of the pan. I made a rub of garlic powder, onion powder salt and fresh pepper. I marinated the ribs in this rub for about an hour. Baked in a 325 oven for 2 hours covered in tin foil. After 2 hours removed foil and drained all the liquid. Slathered with BBQ sauce and put back into oven lowering temp to 275 for 45 minutes uncovered. Delish and so tender!!

Sangria! Sangria!
Wanted to make this Sangria for Christmas Eve so we did a "trial batch" first. We love it!! Hubby hunted for a recipe that would be a keeper and this is it!!! We used half the sugar recommended and it really was sweet enough. For those wanting a little fizz and a tad more sweetness we topped each glass individually with 7Up. This is now our official Sangria recipe!!

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!!
