About this Cook
Im a person that loves good food, and enjoy preparing that food for the end result. EATING!! (Cant you tell?!)
My favorite things to cook
Chicken (cuz I can eat it 24/7), Vegetables (seasoned just right, can make a meal by itself)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's Dressing Mom's Peach Cobbler Mom's Rice with Tomato Gravy
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my kids to cook at a young age, we made it a competition, and had a lot of fun with it. From it, my oldest daughter started at Robert Morris College for Culinary Arts!
My cooking tragedies
Unable to eat 'real food' for 2 years, after discovering I had Achalasia, I learned the value of being able to eat. It triumphantly increased my love and fascination with food, and eating great food, enjoying the taste, and properly preparing it.

Mom's Cucumbers
I used this recipe to replace a full veggie salad and save time. It was great! I didn't have vinegar, and replaced it with the juice from a half jar of mild nacho slices, which added a spicy taste. Then sprinkled it with a tsp of dill instead of celery seed.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
I looked this recipe up at the last minute. It was a great base recipe. I did add other seasonings to create more flavor, but it was easy, quick, and I had everything to make it. Will use again, but with less butter or other substitute.
