My daughter with Amara
About this Cook
I am a mother of 5 girls ages 13-19. Former nurse, now I cook at a steakhouse and love it! Have a huge garden every year, and can like crazy. Love bird watching and my dog, Murphy a 6 yr old rat terrier.
My favorite things to cook
soups, grilling anything, pasta dishes, homemade mac n cheese and scalloped potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Smoked turkey for Thanksgiving and a slow cooked brisket for summer BBQ's.
My cooking triumphs
Pretty sure I have mastered enchiladas, and make a mean Chicken Piccata/Pomodoro.
My cooking tragedies
My 1st from scratch pumpkin pie, I forgot the eggs, then #2 I forgot the sugar, and by the 3rd pie I was so frustrated my crust was tough! Yikes!

Creamy Beet Salad
My 13 yr old and I whipped this together is just a few minutes. I used s.cream instead of yogurt, and 2 TB of powdered green goddess dressing in place of the dill,& used rice wine vinegar. Had just roasted beets from my garden, so 1/4'd them, and voila, DELICIOUS!!!! My daughter said, " I think this ones a keeper!" Wonderful!

Cranberry, Apple, and Fresh Ginger Chutney
Delicious! I actually cut back on the sugars by about half, and my family said it was just perfect. I served it on the Actually Delicious Turkey burgers, and added about 3 TBSP of the chutney to the meat mixture. Had a time keeping my daughter out of it before dinner! I will definitely make this again!!!
