About this Cook
Homemaker. Married 34 years to a wonderful man. Care-giver for parents in our home. Reluctant organist in local church- love doing it, but no training so... Mother of four, Grammy to four (so far).
My favorite things to cook
Breads of all types, soups and stews, one-dish casseroles, unusual desserts- like pinto bean pie!
My favorite family cooking traditions
German, Irish, and Norwegian backgrounds make for an interesting collection of family recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Sour dough anything. Gluten-free, diabetic recipes for friends and extended family holiday gatherings.
My cooking tragedies
The whole first year of our marriage! I flopped so many times I lost count. Thanks to my older sister and a few of her simple recipes, my husband survived and stuck it out. Now he's my most ardent fan.

Easy Irish Colcannon
It was okay, but the cabbage flavor sort of disappeared in the potatoes, yet the potatoes "weren't quite right" either. It did make great potato patties though.

Ukrainian Meat Filled Cabbage Rolls
Loved the creamy sauce vs. the usual tomato variety. The filling was a switch from the rice we normally see too. Very flavorful. My family said it was definitely a "keeper."
