Grandma & Lucas
About this Cook
I am a social worker and specialize in Alzheimer's/dementia. I am 3 classes away from my Masters in Gerontology. I have been married for almost 32 years to a retired Marine, whom I first met when I was 12 and he was 13. We have a 31 yr old son and 27 yr old daughter. We have one precious grandson; 21 month old Lucas William(our son's baby)-he is in the picture with me. I love to cook and love to cook pasta dishes. We were stationed in Japan for 9 years, and I frequently prepare Japanese dishes. I would say I am an excellent cook, but not when it comes to baking or candy making. I collect cookbooks and cooking magazines. I have hundreds of cookbooks that I have collected over the past 31 years.
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Southern Comfort Food
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Christmas dinner this year with my 28 yr old daughter, Amanda
My cooking triumphs
Creating my home made baked macaroni and cheese recipe that everyone who eats it wants the recipe. It is always requested that I bring this to family functions.
My cooking tragedies
While we were stationed in Iwakuni, Japan, I made my home made carrot cake to take to my husband's company Christmas dinner, but instead of putting in cinnamon, I accidentally put chili powder in it instead!

Fat Granny's Minestrone Soup
That is a terrible name for this soup. The soup is very good though.

Clinton's Special Vegetarian Quiche
This was delicious, but I substituted sour cream for the cottage cheese because I detest cottage cheese.

Dad's Kentucky Home Fries
These are good. We just call them fired potatoes. I have eaten them all my life and have prepared them this way all 34 yrs I have been married.
