Grammy & Orion
About this Cook
I love being Grammy to Orion, our grandson. He is two years old. He lives in Tehachapi with his mom so my husband and I try to see him at least twice a month and keep him for a few days each month either at our home or at his daddy's in Big Bear. I also enjoy time with my Mom-in-law, my God-daughters, and my sisters.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking but i also enjoy trying new recipes for dinners and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making the entire Thanksgiving dinner. I also like making tamales at Christmas with my husband's family. I am half Italian, but my mother did not enjoy cooking so our traditions slipped away.
My cooking triumphs
Roast Turkey. Food gifts at Christmas time.
My cooking tragedies
I made a chicken enchilada dish with shredded chicken breast, non-fat cheese, non-fat sour cream, etc. It was awful! We couldn't even eat it!!! I also tried a spaghetti dish where you put the pasta in the sauce to cook. It was like eating glue! We had to throw it away. LOL!!

Cranberry BBQ Chicken
Oh my good food!! I made this using jellied cran sauce, the BBQ sauce and about half a cup of salsa. I made it as directed then served it with sweet cornbread. The sauce was SOOOOO GOOD we spooned it over the cornbread, too! AWESOME!!!!!

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel
YOU MUST PLACE PEELS IN COLD WATER AND BRING TO BOIL FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES DRAIN, FILL AGAIN WITH COLD WATER, BOIL, ETC. AND REPEAT FOR A TOTAL OF THREE TIMES! THIS REMOVES BITTERNESS (AND PESTICIDES IF ANY). THEN PROCEED WITH SUGAR WATER.
