About this Cook
Married with 3 grown children. So we are officially empty nesters, which changes the cooking habits of making food for 5 all the time! My middle son is married with a lovely wife (that can outcook anyone) and has 3 children 1 daughter and 2 sons.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken - love, love, love chicken - about any way it can be made!! Also love salads - pasta especially. TOMATOES... always a favorite in about anything
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma's cookies - she never measured - just knew what to put in them!! She also made homemade bread every Saturday and would send loaves home with who ever stopped by!
My cooking triumphs
My salads are a favorite... that is something I don't have to measure anymore!!
My cooking tragedies
Breads - never has mastered the art of pastries or breads or a pie crust either! -- can take the pie crust off of the 'have never done' list... before the holidays my husband and I made pie crusts and they actually turned out pretty good!

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll
Simply delicious - and very, very easy - I did spray the pan and put parchment paper down before baking which made it very simple to remove from the pan and then roll up! WILL MAKE AGAIN!

Spring Sweet Pea Pasta Salad
Loved the mix of dill and lemon. I did add a bit more sour cream and mayo - just like a creamier consistency - will make again for sure!!

Sugar Cookie Cutouts
Very, very good sugar cookies. Stayed nice and soft even after they were frosted. Took to work - they sure didn't last long - and everyone wanted the receipe!! I took the advice of one review about rolling out in between parchment paper - that worked great and then baked them on parchment. This is definitely a keeper!!
