About this Cook
My Grandmaother taught me to cook when I was quite young. She was Pennsylvania Dutch and a wonderful cook. I cooked at a nursing home for 10 years. We had 120 residents along with staff and often family of the residents. I also had the oppertunity to live in Italy for 3 years. The Italians know good food.
My favorite things to cook
Main dishes are my favorite things to cook. Occasionally breads and rarely baking. This is mostly because I cook without a recipe and seldom measure ingrediants, of course that doesn't work so well with baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The experts are right, everything is better with fresh quality ingredients.
My cooking triumphs
Egg rolls that disappear as soon as they are fried. Focaccia Italian flat bread and almost anything using fresh ingredients from my vegatabe garden.
My cooking tragedies
No bake cookies that have to be eaten with a spoon, hard tac candy that was unbreakable.

Oat Whole Wheat Bread
I tried this bread and love it. It is dense but with 2 1/2 cups wheat flour and oatmeal that is to be expected. My loaves are in a zip lock bag, they are moist and delicious. It is a keeper.
