About this Cook
To be honest, I cook out of necessity, not out of the love for it. But I do enjoy finding new recipes as I seem to rotate the same ones over and over. I really enjoy this website for finding new things and I also appreciate reading the reviews. They help a lot!
My favorite things to cook
I like making things in a slow-cooker and I enjoy making appetizers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just this year I started making roll-out sugar cookies with our 2-1/2 year old granddaughter and I hope that will continue as a tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out and that everyone likes is a triumph for me!
My cooking tragedies
Once when I was young and a novice cook, I was asked to bring a salad to the family Thanksgiving dinner. I found a cranberry salad recipe. It sounded so good. But when everyone tried it, they kind of laughed and wouldn't eat it. Well,the recipe didn't say that you had to "cook" the cranberries before adding them to the salad! That story is still told thirty years later and we still laugh about it!

Pizza Salad I
Pizza with no crust so you can have fewer calories? Who are they kidding? Each serving has 40.5 grams of fat! With all that it wouldn't matter if you ate the crust!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
While this was certainly an easy soup to make it wasn't anything special. Both my husband and I commented that it had no distinct taste. I followed the recipe exactly except that I omitted the tsp of salt (why do you need to add salt to a recipe that has over 900 mg of sodium in each serving??????). I was excited to find this recipe that so many raved about only to be disappointed.

Cornucopia
This turned out better than I thought and was much easier than I'd envisioned. I didn't have any trouble with slippage but the braid did fall off during baking. I think it was too heavy. I pinned it back in place with wood picks. Can't wait to fill it with fresh cut veggies - it will be a conversation piece as well as a nice change from the old "relish tray"!
