About this Cook
I was widowed when my daughter was four and raised my daughter on homemade, healthy meals. Now she's on her own and I cook simply for myself. But I still love to try new recipes for get-togethers with friends.
My favorite things to cook
Since I work, slow-cooker recipes are a favorite. Recipes that are simple and tasty get my attention. I make a great pie crust and I think it is easier (and tastier) than making cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Apple pie. I slit my top crush just like my mother taught me, the way my grandmother did.
My cooking triumphs
Pie crust.

October Apple Pie
I have been making this pie for years. It was one of the first recipes I used from this website. I've gotten major compliments from it. My favorite pie is apple & the melted caramel areas are so tastey. My only problem is that if the apples are very sweet, the pie is too sweet so I've learned to adjust the amoumt of sugar I add by tasting the apples first. I never put the sugar on top the top crust either just because I don't like it that way on any pie.

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch
I've made this for years. Love it. When the rhubarb starts growing in the garden, this is the recipe I start yearning for. Adding vanilla sounds like a great idea. My co-workers request this, even the one who did't likw rhubarb. Now she makes it herself too.

Pecan Cups
Everyone at Thanksgiving liked this so much that they got excited when they learned I was bringing it at Christmas too, except that they wanted me to to double the recipe. I sprayed mini cupcake pans for bite size treats.
