About this Cook
"Love thy neighbor"--I took that to heart and married the guy who lived next door to me in Bellflower, CA. He was born and raised on Kauai, HI. Until I met him I had never fixed or eaten rice. Now it's a staple at almost every meal.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook old fashioned comfort meals like pot roast, fried chicken, and meatloaf. I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and ingredients although my hubby likes to stay with what he knows. So, we compromise.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas baking is a must in my house. I spend an entire week baking, wrapping, and gifting homemade goodies. One Thanksgiving tradition is making pumpkin rolls--one for home and 2 or 3 for work.

Oven Pot Roast
Made this last night and oh my gosh was it good! Very tender and well flavored. I'm not usually a fan of using canned soup but will make an exception in this case. Can't wait for leftovers tonight. Thank you.

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding
Oh gosh, this was good! I had apples and bread I needed to use up. When I found this recipe, it was perfect. I substituted Splenda for the sugars (white and brown) and used low fat milk, but left everything else just as written. It was tasty and easy to make. Thank you, Meshel.
