About this Cook
I've been married 33 years. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. I love rummage sales and going antiquing. I am a college student and I'm hoping to get a job when I'm done. I love walking. I take pride in my cooking, I think it is an art.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups, roasts, spaghetti, chilli. I like to make my own pie crust and homemade pies. I love cooking from scratch. I'm always willing to try new recipes and learn new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always make sugar cookies at Christmas time. I love to make my own stuffing for Thanksgiving the way my Swedish grandfather passed down.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook period. When I married 33 years ago I was a tomboy and didn't know how to cook at all. I had to dig in and learn!
My cooking tragedies
The only thing that I remember that may have been a little tragic, was the first pot roast I made. I called my mother and asked her how to make it. She told me to put some water with the roast and put it in the oven and bake it. Well, needless to say, I drowned the roast with water and it sucked the flavor out of the roast and it was terrible. So, I quickly learned my lesson on that one.

Delicious Spinach and Turkey Lasagna
I used my homemade spaghetti sauce that I made with ground turkey the day before. I also doubled the sauce and ricotta cheese and the mozzarella cheese. Mine, like other reviewers said, came out a little watery. Enough to where it diluted the sauce a little bit I thought. Still good. I think the spinach made it a little watery. Next time I will use frozen spinach and pat it dry before I put it in the lasagna. But I would make it again. I also like red pepper flakes in my sauce.

Classic Goulash
I usually double this recipe and I use tomato juice instead of water. I don't use tomato sauce in it. To thicken it slightly I use half a cup of flour mixed with a couple teaspoons of paprika, little bit of marjorum and thyme. I add this to the hamburger and onions and then put the tomato juice and tomatoes in. Then slowly bring to a simmer. It's not watery and tastes great. You can also put green pepper in it, bay leaves and garlic. Just don't get heavy on the thyme and marjorum, a quarter to half a teaspoon goes a long way. I was given this recipe when I was a young bride.

Mom's Meatloaf
This is similar to how I make it, but I use a can of tomato soup instead of tomato sauce. It is the best I've ever had!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
