About this Cook
I am a Virginia girl, nurse and educator. I avidly collect recipes and wish I could make all the ones I have collected. I have been a nurse for more than 35 years, love my family and look forward to retirement...I think!!??
My favorite things to cook
I really do well with cakes like my Five Flavor Pound cake. I also like to make bread and it may be edible any week now!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Eve buffet at my house using handed down recipes from my mom and grandmother. New ones get added but there are still the favorites like hot crab dip, bourbon weenies and soft gingersnap cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Finally getting Thanksgiving dinner right! AND getting meatballs right!!! I was raised by 2 fabulous cooks but unfortunately didn't pay close attention until it was too late.
My cooking tragedies
I used to cook meatballs...the kids, they would back away slowly! Meatloaf is not my friend either. My husband and I are still chuckling about the last one. He makes it better than I do.

Grilled Chipotle Marinated Chicken
This is undoubtedly the best smokey and spicy marinade for chicken I have ever used. What a winner!
