About this Cook
I'm a 72 year old great-grandmother, married, and we are snowbirds and spend 6 months in Oregon and 6 months in Arizona. We love motorcycle riding, quading, and social get togethers. Lots of potlucks.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything..
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners.
My cooking triumphs
There have been a few...
My cooking tragedies
A few of those, too. I think the biggest one was Chicken & Dumplings, when I made the dumplings too big and cooked them for an hour in order to get them done, and they were like baseballs! We laugh about that one!

Scrambled Eggs Done Right
I have been making scrambled eggs this way ever since my grandmother told me how, when I was a teenager, back in 1951. I have always used Best Foods mayo and water, and real butter, not margarine. Remember not to overcook, or put salt on them while cooking (makes them tough). Salt & pepper them after serving. If you don't like the taste of mayo, use less....if you do, use more. Don't use salad dressing or store brand mayo.. use Best Foods. Tastes better. Sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese, if you like, or dump catsup on them like my dad did!
