Me & my two Grand Daughters
About this Cook
I am 51. I have two children,a Son, 34 & a Daughter, 26 and a Beautiful 4 yr old Grand Daughter and another one due in Febuary 2009. I have been Happily married for 25 years and counting. We are both FAT as I LOVE TO COOK!!! I was taught to cook by a pinch of this and a dab of that. I just love to find new recipes. I am horrid about changing recipes by a pinch of this and a dab of that, but it normally comes out very good. I love to read, mostly horror, and movies, movies and more movies!!! I also love my two dogs. Buddy Boy a Toy Fox terror and a Chihuahua named Stinker. And boy is he a STINKER!!! Ha ha.
My favorite things to cook
Green pepper, mushroom,onion, steak rice topped with green onions, Southern fried chicken, potato salad, baked chicken and soups. I make all kinds of soups. I also make SUPER peanut brittle, and glass candy, all flavors. Those are my Christmas gifts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love having my family over for their Birthdays and cooking their FAVORITE dishes. Every year I am most surprised by what they will ask for. My Daughter ALWAYS asks for the green pepper, mushroom, onion, steak rice. My Son on the other hand always has something different that he remembers from his childhood that he would like to have again. My Husband...well, I swear, with the right spices, he'd eat fried card board!!! Mostly he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy. I also LOVE the holidays to get together and have just about EVERYTHING!!!
My cooking triumphs
Anymore, with my RA, I feel all my cooking triumphs are TRIUMPHS!!! When I FIRST got married, I could cook almost ANYTHING...except simple things, like eggs!!! Or pancakes... Give me a recipe that no one else can cook, and I can cook it, but give me an egg or a pancake and forget it. SOOOOO, my triumphs have been to cook perfect eggs and pancakes.
My cooking tragedies
I can NOT make home made pie crust!!! I got a "no fail" pie crust recipe from a friend of mine. I was so excited, to FINALLY be able to make a home made pie crust! I made the crust, set it aside, made the creamy chocolate filling, made home made whipped cream and got it all together. It was BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so sure it would have been just SUPER... EXCEPT... when we went to cut into the pie,I had forgotten to cook the pie crust!!! VERY gooy! NEVER again. The frozen ones are just as good. Ha ha ha.

Authentic German Potato Salad
Many many years ago, while married to my ex-Husband who's step Mother came here with her Army Husband, from Germany, made this every time we came over to eat. Me being really really young (17), I had an attitude about "Mother-in-laws" & I would NOT admit that I liked her German Potato Salad, so, I never asked her for the recipe... To ANYTHING she made. How stupid I was. And here after 34 years, here is her recipe!! I was used to Miracle Whip, egg, mustard etc potato salad & I always hated potato salad. Her German Potato Salad took me a while to get used to, but I DID learn to love her GPS. Now, after all my years on "Allrecipes" is the GPS My ex-Mother-in-law made. I am going to make this & take it to her house & say "Thank you" for all the patients she used with my stupid arse!! She really was good to me, in spite of my nasty attitude. Thank you for posting this.

Italian Wedding Cookies III
I want to say THANK YOU Chris for putting this recipe on I grew up with these, & I haven't been able to find the recipe ANYWHERE!! My problem??? My Mother called "Danish Wedding Cookies". Needless to say, She was Danish. I adore these cookies! I tripled the recipe! We used to take the cookies, once they were cooled down & gently shake them in a gallon sized plastic bag with powdered sugar and place them to continue to cool. We did the cresants & round balls. Shake GENTLY in bag cuz these cookies melt in your mouth! THANK YOU, THANK YOU for giving me back my Xmas cookies!

Oven-Fried Pork Chops
These are VERY good, though I too changed a couple of things... I hate eggs so I didn't use the eggs or the milk. I just rinsed them in water. I also only had corn flake crumbs, not herb seasoned stuffing mix. I am disabled so I can't just run out to the store, or I would have. With the corn flake crumbs, these were easily the BEST pork chops I have EVER eaten. Crispy and tender. I will try them with the herb seasoning, but I really did like the corn flake crumbs. They come in a box and I also use them to do chicken. I don't know why I didn't think to use them on pork chops. I'll never cook them my old way again!
