About this Cook
Retired. Single divorced female. Grandkids. Urban dweller. Love city views: hate gardening and yard work.
My favorite things to cook
Now, anything quick and easy especially proportioned for one person. Or else slow cooked in a crock pot with leftovers I can freeze. I like to bake quick breads and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's simmered pork chops with onions, green pepper, and tomatoes; always a favorite with my family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
I make really good frosted pumpkin cookies and a variety of quick breads like zucchini, strawberry, and banana.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school my mom tried to teach me to cook. She had me put a pot of water on the stove in preparation to do something, I got engrossed in a book and burned the bottom out of the pot. She gave up. I finally learned to cook when I left home and needed to survive.

Chicago-Style Hot Dog
Absolutely all the ingredients in a Chicago style hot dog. Just made one for me tonight and plain dogs for the grandkids. They'll grow into the Chicago dogs later. But if you check out Rachel Ray's Chicago Hot Dog Salad, she uses cabbage slaw and says that it is part of the Chicago dog. No way. Though her salad is tasty.
