About this Cook
I learned to cook when I was about 7 - 8 years old. My mom taught me by her method which was just adding without measuring. It makes it harder to write an accurate recipe, but I try the best I can. I only had 1 child but did a lot of cooking for him over the years as well as lots of relatives.
My favorite things to cook
I usually prefer just plain old down home cooking. But I do enjoy cooking loads of new things too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My ancestry is German, but my parents were born in Russia which had a HUGE influence on Mom's cooking. Those are some of my favorite foods. Good comfort foods too.
My cooking triumphs
I took classes in cake decorating and while I don't do it so much now as I used to, I love creating something that looks beautiful as well as tasting fabulous. I have made many wedding cakes, but my favorite was for my nieces wedding. It had lots of big yellow icing roses and a fountain in it.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count. I think we have all had some of these. One is when I was making a wedding cake and my table was not the most stable. Needless to say, it got bumped and the top tier fell taking most of the second tier with it and a small portion of the bottom too. Barely got it to the wedding on time.

Almond Cheddar Appetizers
These were very tasty and everybody loved them. I will make again and probably triple recipe next time.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion
Made these for Father's Day. I followed Barbalicious's advice and added other veggies and herbs. I had everything already sliced & diced then I laid out foil sheets. I let guest add whatever they wanted to their packet. Everybody loved these and got to make their own choices. Thanks for this delightful recipe Bob.

I tried just half recipe so I would know what they were like before making these for Father's Day tomorrow. It is the first for my son. I know he will love these as I did when I tried them out. I did omit the onions but only because I didn't have any. I will buy some before tomorrow. Thanks Chef John
