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.

Norwegian Potato Klub
This recipe is so close to the one my Mother-in-laws Sister made. Her name was Dagmar. (Spelling maybe wrong, but you get the idea) Norwegian!!!! She too used the raw and cooked potatoes. She put side pork in the center. She boiled them in salt water. While waiting for those to cook, she fried up bacon, crumbled it up and then added some canned milk. I didn't think that I even wanted to try them. My Husband sliced his up in thin slices, poured the bacon and canned milk over the slices and then sprinkled sugar over the top of that! I was shocked to say the least. I did try it with the bacon/canned milk. It was wonderful. My Husband said try the sugar, and I'm like "no way!" I did try the bacon/canned milk. I have no say that it was the best meal that I have ever eaten. I still won't use the sugar, but I also don't like brown sugar, pineapple and cloves on ham! Yes we had left overs and we fried them in butter and those were super. I have looked all over trying to find this recipe. Thank you so much for posting it. I'm sure my Hubby will thank you too. I am from Danish descent and have lots of experience with raw potatoes. I'm going to make this recipe both ways and let you know they fare in my Family.

Spareribs and Kraut
I LOVE country ribs and sauerkraut!!! I always come to this site to double check, to seeif what I'm thinking of making is here. I have made this on my own without a recipe. I thought I'd just check to see if maybe there were some other ideas. I always brown my ribs in a frying pan 1st. Don't need to add oil. The ribs have MORE than enough grease to cook with. That grease gets tossed out. I season with salt (not much, as the sauerkraut has plenty) pepper, granulated garlic and Johnnys Seasoning. I then place the ribs in my crock pot, with the sauerkraut. Put the lid on, place the crock pot on high, and go about my way. About an hour before we eat, I make mashed potatoes. MY personal little trick with my mashed potatoes is, instead of using milk with a little bit of butter with pepper, is to use a little bit of canned milk. To my family and myself, it makes the mashed potatoes not quite so thin. Then we can make a little well in the center of the potatoes and put sauerkraut and juice over the top. This is my little kingdom of heaven. Thank you for putting this recipe up!!! It's wonderful.

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.
