About this Cook
I'm a Baby Boomer mother, grandmother, and healthcare professional.I love to read cookbooks and clip recipes.The cookbooks eventually wind up the closet, well read, but few if any recipes tried. The clipped recipes pile up until I get tired of looking at them and then I toss most of them out.I create most of my dishes with what I have on hand. I do have a recipe box with tried and true recipes that are old and have been our favorites over the years.
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick, easy, and healthy. I prefer using fresh ingredients and stay away from prepared foods and salt as much as I can.I love to prepare any kind of meat,chicken,or vegetables on the grill. Shellfish is also a big favorite. Can't forget anything made with cheese!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My all time favorite is making spritz cookies at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Finally making a great stuffed pork chop on the grill after years of making dry and hard ones in the oven.Why I never thought of that before is beyond me.
My cooking tragedies
Trying a new recipe for company is something I really don't like to do for obvious reasons.My son picked out a recipe for his birthday cake one year. The filling had the texture of a silicone gasket or chicken bone cartlige. We could have used it for a Frisbie!

Chef John's Panzanella
Excellent! I kept the ingredients the same but changed the toasting method of the bread. I placed the olive oil tossed bread cubes on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for approx. 5 min. Stirred and sprinkled with the Parmesan, then continued to bake until nicely browned. This recipe doesn't disappoint.

Polish Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
Made it as written and it's excellent. Water dampened fingers will make it easier to spread the first layer of dough.

Teriyaki Ginger Salmon Marinade
Loved it. Didn't use it on fish though. I grilled two packages of chicken wingetes until crispy then tossed them in the sauce. I would say it's a very versatile sauce and worth trying.
